Adidas Stan Smith re-launch

By Gavin Jewkes, 15 January 2014

Satisfying a trainer addiction can be tough. But to all the sneakerholics out there, know this: today sees the re-launch of the iconic Adidas Stan Smith trainers, after nearly two years off the market.

First produced in the '60s and renamed following an endorsement (that continues to this day) by former Wimbledon champ Stan Smith in 1971, they are the sneaker purist's style of choice.

Back in the day, David Bowie and John Lennon were fans, but now you're more likely to see them on hip-hop stars and the fashion elite, including Kanye West and Marc Jacobs.

Timelessness, simplicity and how much the big dogs love them is probably why they're the best-selling tennis shoe of all time - and perhaps why you should get a pair here.
