adidas Originals Stan Smith trainers*
After a two year hiatus, yesterday saw the relaunch of the adidas Originals trainer endorsed by tennis star Stan Smith. Looking at the fresh design of the renowned, yet muted, adidas three stripes on the Stan Smith trainer, it's no challenge to see how it has grown to icon status and is still as desirable - and perhaps even more so - today as it was 42 years ago.
The simplicity and functionality of the trainer are key; the visible stitching upon the clean-cut shape presents a versatile style for both genders and all sizes - I'm sold undeniably.
Last night I headed down to the Stan Smith relaunch do in Shoreditch where a larger than life replica of the trainer box had been transformed into a pop up store. It is an insane space and with 3D printers on hand to customise your kicks, it's definitely something worth suggest checking out while it lasts.
You can visit the pop up store to purchase your Stan Smiths until 19th January at The Old Truman Brewery, E1 6QR.
