adidas Stan Smith Collection
ADIDAS ORIGINALS: STAN SMITH - NOW MORE SUSTAINABLE
Since 1973, they’ve more or less stayed the same. But now, Stan Smith sneakers need to change. Not in how they look, or in how they feel — but in how they’re made. It’s time the classic adidas Originals shoe became more sustainable. Became truly timeless. Without sacrificing the infamous design, we’ve reinvented the Stan Smith sneaker with a recycled PRIMEGREEN upper to do right by it. A new standard in sustainability, crafted in a classic silhouette. Because style and sustainability shouldn’t just go hand in hand, they belong on your feet.
ADIDAS ARCHIVE: STAN SMITH
Stan Smith sneakers get their title from the tennis star of the same name. The silhouette was first released in the late ‘60s, then renamed the adidas Stan Smith in the early ‘70s. At the time, the two-time Grand Slam singles and five-time Grand Slam doubles champion was known as one of the best players in the world. Over the years, the all-American shoe has evolved from athletic sneaker to fashion icon, appearing on runways, sparking collaborations and inspiring numerous variations on the theme.
