These shoes are so much better in person! I could only buy these shoes online and I lucked out by getting the perfect size on the first try.lol! Thank you Adidas for supporting the LGBT community and creating these awesome shoes.
First off, this is a great retro release. It's very accurate to the original and it's made with high quality leather. However, there's one thing about the US release that disappointed me. The style pictured in the Stan Smith Returns ads and marketing is actually the UK/international "vintage" release, which is even closer to the original than this modified US version. It also used higher quality materials. I'm a bit disappointed that adidas advertised one model in the US, then released something completely different. Other than that, they are classic and comfortable.
These definitely are the best shoes I've ever purchased in a while! The colors are vibrant, the shoe itself is very well made and comfortable. The cause behind these shoes are meaningful and beautiful. There's literally nothing I don't like about my shoes. I just want to walk around and dance in circles in them all day long. It will be even better if they come in smaller sizes :)
I bought a pair of these in February, & I've hardly taken them off since. They've become my "thing" among my friends. I purchased the classic white & black, & despite the gold details, they go great with everything. They were extremely comfortable from the first time I put them on. They didn't require any breaking in. The fit was great, other than that I had to lace up the very top hole & I have to retie them throughout the day to keep my heel from slipping out when I walk. This is probably because I wear a women's 8.5/9 & this is a men's shoe, however. They breathe well & my feet don't get too hot wearing them. Really comfortable to walk around in all day. I'm looking forward to buying more in the future!
I remember the young salesman in the Wilshire store so may pairs ago looking at me sincerely and exclaiming: "You know, these aren't good for anything anymore!" I guess he was right, they aren't for running, or sprinting, fencing, soccer, or even competitive tennis anymore. They are extremely comfortable, true to size, great for walking around and are acceptable casual shoes where other sports shoes might be frowned on. Stan Smiths have classic style and comfort. I guess that still makes them good for something.
I was lucky enough to purchase the OTHER Stan Smith floating around out there, the classic one with the stitched tongue and higher-quality materials all the way around. And I will say that it is an amazing shoe, classic style, incredibly comfortable, and simply beautiful on foot. If you can get your hands on the stitched-tongue style as opposed to the padded tongue you will not be disappointed. In a side-by-side comparison, the padded-tongue style available in the US just feels cheaper and a lower quality.
There comes a time in each life when you realize that trendy means classic. That's what we have in this shoe both in style and utility. The shoe looks great from every angle. Even judging against my previous Addidas shoes, this one is the most comfortable for every day wear. The sole grips well and shields you from all those pebbles or other inconsistencies you may encounter on the street or in the mall. The arch is supportive and there is very little movement of the shoe while on your foot. The fit and trim are excellent. Complaint - only one, and it's terribly minor. The tongue could be a little wider at the ankle, but at least the tongue is of a thickness that is appropriate, unlike others I have worn.
I love these shoes, these would be my third pair -- so I felt confident buying online. I looked at my old pair and purchased the sizing accordingly. But what arrived was the mens sizing. I thought these shoes were sized unisex and I ordered them while in the women's section. A bit confusing and annoying but I will try again once my refund comes through.
It took me a month to actually become owner to a pair of these shoes... It was literally sold out everywhere, and even while I was looking, I had my doubts. I'm speaking sensibly here - no gushing about how 'perfect' these are, but really. When they came, they looked exactly like the photos, and it seems to be great quality as well. I'm a U.S. Women's 7 generally, and size 6 in these fit fine - a bit roomy, but that's how I like it and it can be easily fixed with thick socks etc. Overall, I'm very pleased with the project. Plus the shipping was very quick.
As there was no female model (I use 8), I bought male in size 6 1/2 (I decided for this size after a email with this recommendation from Adidas). I bought these tennis to use everyday! It's sturdy and very hip! I'm in love with this shoes.
Love the all black versions of these classic trainer. Totally understated design with all black soul which i like as I'm not a jazzy logo type of person so this style with the three stripes being just perforated holes are perfect and work with a smart outfit aswell as just casual wear. And the best thing. They last for years. My only gripe is after buying one pair of asides footwear previously, learnt that all sizes are a whole one size two small. So normally I'd be 10.5 so bought 11.5 size and they are perfect. You may want to keep that in mind....
I've seen a few people write that a lot of Adidas seem narrow. That's not it. You have to unlace their shoes and lace them back up. The difference will amaze you. Adidas may have made a couple of fashion tweaks to it but this is the same superstar that people have loved. I wish they left the logo on the tongue white but the shoe still looks good. It's still a very comfortable shoe.
I was looking for this product everywhere and it had been sold out on the run up to Christmas and after in sales. However I took a browse through the adidas website and they released these shoes on New Year's Day... Ordered straight away because of the popularity of the shoe and within days it was delivered and packed in the best of manner. Very pleased thanks adidas :)
I would recommend ordering a 1/2 size down. These shoes are definitely the cleanest pair I own! They are my everyday use shoes. They look better the more you wear them, and they also get more and more comfortable as time goes on. To break them in, I'd recommend using a hair dryer on them and then just wear them around the house. Like I say, even though it's a white shoe, getting them dirty just gives them that character. Also if you decide ordering them true to your size, put an extra pair of insoles in there or something that will do the trick!
I bought my first pair of Stan Smith's in 1985 and have worn at least one pair each year since then. There were times when it became very difficult to purchase. Fortunately the internet made it much easier. For me, the simple white shoe with the green heel never goes out of style. Thank you adidas.
