ADIDAS ORIGINALS STAN SMITH LEATHER SOCK
By Nic Hayman, 10 April 2017
We all know that adidas’ Stan Smith started its life on the court, but The Brand with the Three Stripes’ latest iteration on the silhouette is more at home in the clubhouse quaffing champers.
The appetite for smarter sneakers has upped in recent seasons. Where it was once a sartorial sin to wear anything other than your Sunday best with a suit, the rules have relaxed, and, with the right selection, it’s a summer-style power move. Whether you’re going full formal or simply looking to get your rotation a bit more dignified, this elegant variation on the Stan Smith is the answer. Rather than being pieced together, the court classic has been re-crafted out of a single piece of off-white premium leather for a deconstructed, luxury look. For a final classy touch, Stan’s face is laser-etched on the tongue. No faults here.
