The sneaker sock has been around for a long time. Yet, in 2016, shoes with single-piece uppers are being produced with a new fervour. The Ultra Boost Uncaged, LunarEpic and NMD have been met with unprecedented enthusiasm from punters the world over, but this adidas Stan Smith might be on to something new. The shoe technically falls into sock territory in that it has a one-piece upper although, instead of Flyknit or Primeknit, this Stan Smith's upper is made from leather. The tongue is constructed from some clever folding, and heel support comes by way of an added piece of leather.
This adidas Stan Smith Leather Sock is available now from Overkill.
