The first word that comes to mind when I see the Adidas Stan Smith is, CLEAN. The all white body, small accents of green, and the three perforated lines make the timeless tennis shoe one of the finest pieces of footwear ever.
The first time I heard about these kicks was on Jay Z’s “Jigga that Nigga,” while riding in my older cousin’s Honda Accord. I remember asking him what Stan Smith’s were and him replying, “Oh, you don’t about Stan Smiths? You ain’t ready for those yet. That’s player shit!” These re-releases drop exclusively at Barneys New York for Fashion Week. Make sure you cop a pair and play on player … play on.
