Now don’t get us wrong, every Sneaker Sunday is as good as the last, but sometimes there comes along something truly special (or Spezial – more on that later). This week it’s the adidas Originals Topanga Clean.
NEW IN: ADIDAS ORIGINALS TOPANGA CLEAN
By Nic Hayman, 6 November 2016
The Topanga started life as the California, one of the Trefoil’s many elegant, understated designs from the 1970s that gained grail status among Three Stripes diehards. Walking adidas encyclopaedia Gary Aspden caused clamour when he brought it back as part of his expertly-curated Spezial range in 2014 (albeit with a legally-enforced new name), and now it’s here to stay.
At first glance, it’s a simple shoe, but it’s the details that make the difference here: the short but slim toebox, the textured cupsole, the minimal, perforated branding that earns it the ‘Clean’ moniker. In this off-white, luxe leather makeup, it can most accurately be described as the sneaker equivalent of a Rolls Royce. Pair with dark, cropped trousers and a crisp white oxford shirt for a supremely smart look this winter.
