You bored of Stan Smiths? Me neither so here’s another. adidas Originals have once again hooked up with cult Tokyo fashion label BEDWIN & THE HEARTBREAKERS to produce a limited edition of what is arguably one of their most legendary shoes – the Stan Smith. The special collaboration takes the timeless white silhouette and adds an artsy splatter-effect in the three primary colors, rounding it off with a red heel tag and striped blue insole.

adidas Originals Stan Smith “Lemon”

Originals Stan Smith is one of the few silhouettes that can truly withstand the test of time. Just in time for summer, this new special edition “Lemon” version comes in a classic white canvas upper with sliced and whole lemons embroidered throughout—somewhat reminiscent of the OG Ice Cream footwear, which is interesting now that Pharrell is on board. Additionally, the sneaker features smooth full grain leather at the heel and tongue, citrus colored branding, and a tonal rubber outsole. The adidas Originals Stan Smith “Lemon” is now available online.

Shigeki Fujishiro x adidas Consortium Stan Smith “PLAY”

shigeki-fujishiro-x-adidas-consortium-stan-smith-play-pack-1Adding to the list of collaborations for this year’s re-release of the Stan Smith, adidas Consortium has teamed up with Japanese designer Shigeki Fujishiro to give the Stan Smith a fun makeover with this “PLAY” pack release. Expressing his fascination with spacial relationships — a familiar theme for the designer — Fujishiro has added colored string to the classic silhouette to give a new look to the perforated Three Stripes. The rest of the shoe is kept clean and simple in all white leather, which serves as a great backdrop for the playful string designs. Look for the Stan Smith “PLAY” pack at No.6 London, No.42 Paris and No.74 Berlin stores and select adidas Consortium partners.

CLOT x adidas Originals Stan Smith

clot-adidas-originals-stan-smith-2The return of adidas‘ iconic Stan Smith silhouette certainly made waves leading up to the official release in mid-January. The classic tennis shoe is in many ways a flagship model for the German brand, and to celebrate the occasion of the re-release, adidas linked up with CLOT to create a limited edition variant. Picking out new materials and colours for this collaborative edition, CLOT and adidas bring us a black upper with gold panels and a hit of branding recognizing the Hong Kong-based label on the heel.clot-adidas-originals-stan-smith-1clot-adidas-originals-stan-smith-4 clot-adidas-originals-stan-smith-5 clot-adidas-originals-stan-smith-6
