The adidas Stan Smith is one of the most iconic sneaker silhouettes ever.
Originally, the Stan Smith was a tennis shoe developed for the French tennis player Robert Haillet in the mid 60s. The name of Stan Smith was added to the tennis shoe at the start of the 70s, when Stan Smith, a famous American tennis player, who began wearing the shoe in 1971, started to endorse it. With this shoe, Stan Smith won the US Open on grass and the Davis Cup on clay with the American team in 1971 and the Wimbledon in 1972. Elegance, freshness and sportiness are the distinctive marks of this immortal shoe.
