Spotted: The Stan Smith

With Wimbledon in full swing, it seemed only appropriate to nod our hats – or rather, our racquets to tennis star Stan Smith, the original inspiration for Adidas’ ubiquitous all white leather sneaker. Since it’s inception in 1973, this modern classic has stood the test of time. And after a three year hiatus and a recent endorsement by fashion darling Phoebe Philo, the Stan Smith has made a game changing comeback as the new ‘it’ sneaker. Match point.

    I plan to get me a pair of Stan Smith!
    Weird, but all the hustle about New Balance left me indifferent, but this Adidas model is another case!
