A quick glance at this upcoming adidas Originals release might have some calling out the similarities between this and the strapped Raf Simons x adidas Stan Smith.

But this isn't a Stan Smith. The silo here is the adidas Originals Master, a model that was originally made for referees. The original versions, often made in France, lacked the adidas branding on the tongue and instead featured a clean white look there–but those looking for historical accuracy probably won't be interested in this pair anyway what with its gold branding and heel stamp. The adidas Originals Master here comes from United Arrows and Sons, and will be releasing in January of 2015.
