Once apon a time.. it almost sounds like a fairy tale what has happend in 2014. When two adidas icons Gary Aspden and Mike Chetcuti teamed up with Ian Brown (Musician/Stone Roses), Robert Brooks (collector), Neil Bedford (Photographer), Greg Bond (film maker) to visit Carloz Ruiz. What they found was paradise for every sneaker lover: A small shop with hundreds of rare sneakers. A number of Carloz Ruiz collections were used to design the adidas Originals X Spezial Collections. One of them is this adidas New York in the classic granite colorway. A sneaker with grey mesh upper, suede toebox and heel cap. The sole is off-white to give it the proper vintage look and the rugged black outsole gives this sneaker the final round up.
