UPDATE: The Stan Smith has been given some major updates lately via Boost inclusions and laser-cut uppers, but this release proves you don’t have to be bold to steal the show. Its heel counters have been given a small dose of dark camo, and the rest of the blank upper has been textured with subtle crocodile skin embossing that you have to get up-close to appreciate.
The original Stan Smith was known to have a serve with bite, and adidas have just tossed up a build of his signature model to match. This Stan has been covered with leather embossed for a modern dinosaur. Textured scales crease the shoe’s polished white upper, and the traditional turf-green heel tab is made up in camo.
The adidas Stan Smith ‘Croc’ doesn’t have a release date, however we’re hearing whispers it’ll rise from the depths early in 2017.
