UPDATE: OK, so it looks like there will be a second Stan Smith dressed in navy suede to come out alongside the black leather one we've already featured earlier. Both sneakers will be available from ISETAN from the 26th of August, with a staggered release on the 29th of August and the 12th of September worldwide at select Consortium accounts.
Bag and accessories maker Yoshida & Co., Ltd.'s main label Porter has collaborated with adidas Originals to create a minimal Stan Smith model to celebrate the Japanese company's 80th anniversary. Made famous amongst Japanese streetwear circles thanks to their work with Hiroshi Fujiwara with the Head Porter line, Porter is no stranger to collaborations but this might be the first time the company has extended its collaborative arm to adidas. Featuring Porter's signature black exterior and Indian Orange lining, the tongue also uses the nylon fabric synonymous with Porter's Tanker range on the otherwise leather upper. The sneaker is available now on the company's online store, head over there now to cop.
