‘Stan Smith, Forever’
For decades, the Stan Smith sneaker redefined what an athletic shoe can be. Representing the epitome of timeless design, the iconic silhouette remained fundamentally unchanged for over half a century — until today, as adidas Originals launches Stan Smith, Forever.
A new touchstone in the brand’s journey to help End Plastic Waste, the next generation of more sustainable takes on the storied silhouette propels the franchise firmly into the future. In celebration of a new era for the silhouette, adidas Originals returns with three unique iterations of the Stan Smith sneaker.
The first two sneakers in the drop are composed of white PRIMEGREEN uppers, a series of high-performance recycled materials, set atop white recycled rubber outsoles. The women’s iteration features printed planet
earth -inspired graphics, a white heel tab and an ivory tongue graphic. Meanwhile, the next makeup features embossed planet earth inspired graphics, gold eyelets, and green heel tabs.
The third sneaker features a white recycled PRIMEGREEN upper, which is complimented by the Stan Smith’s quintessential green heel tab and sat atop a white recycled rubber outsole. The classic look is updated with the addition of planet earth inspired embroidery throughout.
Bringing the sustainability focus full circle, each pair in the collection comes packaged in the classic adidas Originals blue box, which has already been updated to be composed of more than 90 percent recycled paper.
The three latest iterations of the Stan Smith silhouette launched globally on 8 January are available at adidas.com/stansmith.
