It started as a signature tennis shoe for Stan Smith in the 1970's, and since evolved into one of the most iconic shoes adidas has ever created.  A major reason casual sneakers are often referred to as "tennis shoes", the Stan Smith has long been a staple of the casual crowd, worn by everyone from your everyday Joe to ivy leaguers.  After a brief hiatus since it went out of production in 2012, the Stan Smith is back - to the delight of all trying to track down a fresh pair.

As crisp and clean as ever, the Stan Smith returns in its most iconic colorway of premium white leather accented with green, as well as two of its other popular heeltab colors of navy and red.  Be ready to grab your pair of the Stan Smith when it returns to select adidas Originals retailers globally on January 15th.
