Regardless of whatever palewave/normcore/#fashiondad internet fashion bandwagon the kids are on these days, Japanese tastemakers UNITED ARROWS & SONS covered all the bases with this basic (or minimalist masterpiece?) colab with adidas Originals, bringing back the geriatric version of the Stan Smith, the adidas Master. Matching the stark white leather upper with an off-white midsole and gold detailing, If UNITED ARROWS set out to create the most boring collaboration in the history of sneakers, the have succeeded with flying colours. No shade though, Plain Jane is very on-trend right now apparently, and UNITED ARROWS have a long enough resume to prove they know what they're doing. Out now for 21,600 Yen in-store and online now if you're 'bout that retirement home life.
