Originating from the early 60's the Adidas Stan Smith is Adidas's original tennis shoe. Re-entering production for Adidas's 2014 collection the Stan Smith is now a footwear staple across the world with one of the most famous silhouettes available in footwear. You can catch all of the latest Stan Smith releases online and in store at Stuarts London below.
Renamed after the acclaimed Tennis Champion Stan Smith in 1971, Adidas's original tennis shoe began production in the early 60's. One of footwear most iconic silhouettes the Stan Smith has a simply design featuring white uppers and laces. Unlike most Adidas shoes, it does not have the external three stripes. Instead there are three rows of perforations (or punched ventilation holes) on both sides of each shoe's leather upper in the same pattern that should symbolise the three ordinary stripes.
Bar recent deign collaborations with the likes of Y-3, the design of the trainers remaining reasonably untouched over the course of the past five decades. Re-entering production as part of Adidas's 2014 collection, recent models now featuring images of Stan Smith and the infamous trefoil on the tongue you can catch the Stan Smith online or in store at Stuarts London in blue and the traditional "fairway" green colourways this season.
