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.
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.
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 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.
These shoes are amazing i love them so much! They are an early birthday present and they are perfect. One of my foot is a size6 and the other 5.5. I tried to look for the 5.5 but it was sold out but to my surprise the 6 fitted it was ever so slightly slipping but once i tied the shoelace tight it was fine!! I recommend this to everyone!!!
Well designed, minimal branding. About the quality you should expect. Who needs the high end/high price version when you can have the real deal? If I could make one change, it would be a suede heel tab as opposed to leather. That's it. I swear I saw a version like that but I guess you can't always have it all. I wear a size 8.5 boat shoe (barefoot, tight when wearing socks), bought these in a 9 and they fit well in socks (MAYBE could have gone half a size down for better fit in toe but it's close).
My 13 year old son is a self professed "sneakerhead" and I've told him than none of these latest crazes in sneakers can compare to my favorite shoe, the Stan Smith, from when I was his age. Fortunately he IS a "sneakerhead" and that's why he saw that the Stan Smith was back and excitedly let me know. He couldn't believe it when I quickly fired off an order for 2 pairs of size 13s. He isn't a convert yet, but he has trouble taking his eyes off them when I wear them. Thanks for bringing them back to this old dude!
I've been a fan of of the Jeremy Scott shoe for a long time & have a lot of pairs. This particular pair is comfortable pretty much like the rest. Typically the Jeremy Scott shoe is not an everyday shoe but something you wear when you want to stand out & be different. (You will get a lot of attention)
These shoes fit perfect, are super comfortable and look great with anything from jeans to shorts. I did think that they might be a tad more breathable given the knit design but overall am super happy with this purchase.
I ordered these on the internet and had to send them back: the size 8s I ordered were so short and tight that I could not walk. The sole was almost a full inch shorter than my regular size 8 Adidas runners. Also, the black leather doesn't have so much sheen to it, which to my mind limits the use as a crossover to casual non-sports wear Having said that, they are a very smart and versatile shoe - I will certainly buy a white pair, but from a shop where I can actually get the size right.
I love the shoes they fit great. Getting them is the real story, since this model is not available in Mexico and I chose to personalize them, well I bought them in the U.S. through Adidas web store, had them delivered to relatives in the U.S. then on a vacation trip by another relative the shoes were picked up and brought back to Mexico where they were shipped to me. All this process took 3 weeks and a lot of logistics from family and relatives. So message to Adidas Mexico is to have the same products Adidas US offers. Thanks
I searched months on end for Stan Smiths for women in fairway green but found they did not make them for women. Then I decided to try the men's equivalent of women's size 8 which is a 6.5 but could not find it in the green anywhere on the internet,so I called Adidas. They were so helpful & courteous. They found that they had just gotten them back in stock & they were at my door within 2 days! They are the "cleanest", sharpest sneakers ever!
