Thanks to an aggressive relaunch campaign, and assisted by some celebrity co-signs, the Stan Smith is enjoying a career resurgence. The comeback will continue this fall when a Raf Simons edition hits as part of their ongoing collaboration.

Along with the embossed Raf Simons logo on the heel, you'll notice a less subtle change. The iconic perforated Stripes have been replaced by a perforated "R." They also include what appears to be a leather lining. 

What do you think of the upcoming collaboration? Do you prefer this to the more aggressive Raf x adidas kicks we've seen in the past?
