adidas x Foot Locker – Stan Smith

Is there any of my readers unfamiliar with adidas Stan Smith? I think that no matter how you put it this is one of the most famous sneakers ever. Nothing but a perfect basic tennis shoe that has been sold all over the planet (let alone copied by every other sneaker brand). It’s the classic that adidas warned us about in 2013. A few things happened as far as musicians endorsing the brand (Kanye West and Pharrell Williams are those under the spotlight the most) and successful collaborations that brought back this iconic shoe that we first saw in 1964. One of the reasons why people fall in love with this sneaker is its immaculate white/green colorway that contributed to the legendary status of the Stan Smith. What if Foot Locker Europe comes into play and, not afraid to take the risk, designs an exclusive colorway… completely different? This version sold exclusively online and at Foot Locker stores has a lot of flavor in black/grey version, adding a sort of tough attitude with its black stained leather. The contrast toe piece makes it a bit “Superstar looking” and it will match each and every heather grey piece in your wardrobe but the touch of style of this version is the laser engraved Mr. Smith on the tongue. The same treatment has been reserved for the heel tab, making it a little precious compared to the original one. This colorway remix works 100%, giving that tough twist that was missing to these kicks in Roberta G hands. If you feel the same way, you know where the closest Foot Locker is, right?
