The adidas Stan Smith is back. Technically the shoe didn’t really leave, but its last retro was way back in 2011. But this September, it will make a return in limited quantities for New York Fashion Week.
According to Sneaker News, the NYFW drops is just the first as more releases are planned for a greater re-introduction at succeeding Fashion Week celebrations in London and Paris as well as Berlin Art Week at Andreas Murkudis and Dover Street Market Ginza in Tokyom that will also host the launches of the shoe.
The sneakers clean, no frills lines made it a staple from the tennis courts to the streets since it debuted back in 1971 (when Stan Smith’s officially became its endorser). Sneakerheads definitely took the model for granted and have missed them since adidas Originals stopped stocking them. But now, instead of the $60 – $70 price range you may remember, a pair will now cost you $100 (but expect premium materials) and will be available at Barneys starting September 4.
