Excellent news: the original Adidas Stan Smith trainer, after more than two years of being off the market (i.e. only available on eBay), has been re-released. Along with Adidas Sambas and Gazelles, Stan Smiths are the ultimate fashion trainer. Why? Here’s why:
First produced in the 60s and renamed after tennis ace Stan Smith in 1971, the minimal white and green trainer is the sneaker purist's style of choice – Marc Jacobs (left) and Phoebe Philo (right) aren't fans for nothing, y'know. Add to this the fact that Gisele was photographed wearing just a pair of Stan Smiths in November 2013's Paris Vogue and you have the ultimate ringing endorsement. Probably why they’re the best-selling tennis shoe of all time, in fact.
