Adidas Stan Smith re-launch
By Gavin Jewkes, 15 January 2014
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.
