We all know what a Stan Smith looks like – or so we thought. The science lab at adidas has been burning the midnight oil to give us something totally fresh. We won’t bore you with techno babble – but put simply, the upper on these Stans changes colour when you hit it with UV light. That means they take on a whole new glow when the sun shines on them, kind of like a summer tan, but green. Looking beyond the fancy features, the scrunched up styling on the leather upper gives the shoe a great textural detail.
The womens Stan Smith ‘UV’ is available now through select stockists, such as SDV.
