Adidas will elevate the Stan Smith beyond its everyman status soon with the release of these editions, which give the sneaker a more premium feel.
The feel is created via the use of materials from the Horween Leather Company, which has been a source of fine goods for over a century now. The adidas Stan Smith Mid and the classic low-cut adidas Stan Smith both get the makeover, resulting in a significant raising of the price ($150 for the low and $160 for the mid).
The sneaker release date for the Horween Leather adidas Stan Smiths is Oct. 9.
