Stan Smith's Favourite Sneaker Might Surprise You
Adidas blew up the spot when they revived the Stan Smith with a retro release this time last year. I still remember how hype the video was that had adidas' greatest skaters talking about how they got their style from Stan Smith. They were talking sh!$ but the faux Stan Smith's kickflip over that tennis net is still fire.
Foot Wear News recently had a chat with the man himself and spoke to him about what his favourite shoe is. Is it the OG that you'd expect? Nope it's something more unexpected.
'It’s a black suede Stan Smith with a maroon back. That’s been my favourite pair of shoes in the past five years.' He goes on to tell them, 'I just designed another pair of black [Stan Smiths], too — they have tennis-ball fuzz in the back.'
Welp, there you go. Complex even says that the colourways he mentioned, both the Black/Maroon and Black/Tennis Ball Green, aren't even available for customisation on mi adidas. This goes to show that the man himself has a more options available than the white colour schemes us peasants have been supplied with.
