The Stan Clan
It’s time to get your Stan Smith Adidas sneaks out again, because they’re back and even bigger than the last time. If you didn’t know already, Stan Smith was a champion tennis player, a sporting zenith, in the 1970’s who was approached by Adidas to represent their new tennis shoe (hence the perforated triple-stripe rather than the actual bolder stripe) and a star, in the form of a shoe, was born. The original version in green, was also originally named the Adidas Robert Haillet, after the esteemed French tennis player of the 50’s who represented the brand until he was replaced by Stan Smith in 1971 and has just been relaunched. Buy yours here, if you manage to get a pair before they sellout.
Don’t say I never told you anything.
