The sequel to adidas Originals x SPEZIAL film, 'Sole Searching in South America' launches Monday 23 November 08:00 BST.
In 2014, Gary Aspden was tipped off about a store in Buenos Aires, filled with vintage adidas pieces. Upon visiting the shop and its owner, Carlos, with a number of adidas fanatics, including musician Ian Brown, notorious adidas collector Robert Brooks and adidas enthusiast Mike Chetcuti, the group, in awe of the array, took some rare archive pieces back to England to inspire their adidas Originals x SPEZIAL collection, and to showcase in the SPEZIAL exhibition as a part of Design Manchester 14.
The sequel, 'Sole Searching in South America 2' starts with the aftermath of the first film, which made Carlos into a worldwide celebrity. While spending time with Carlos in 2014, Aspden and his team formed a close relationship with the collector and were compelled to return his kindness. Part two of the documentary sees the group return to the now legendary shop, armed with collectable pieces of the New York SPZL pack, as well as the 'Carlos shoe' to show their appreciation.
Tune in Monday 23 November 08:00 BST to watch the sequel.
