The design is timeless without discussion. The model is exceptional in its absence of three stripes. The basic model is the white-green colourway, but most of the sneaker-hearts were stolen by the triple white version. What might cheer you up is the fact, that with this model we can observe the return of Velcro, which replaced the classic tying with laces. The first leather tennis shoe ever. It was released in 1964, and because it became popular with a French professional tennis player, it was first named after him - Adidas Robert Haillet used to be the name. It was a year later after its launch. In 1978, the name was changed to the current one, Stan Smith. Those who do not follow tennis and have no idea who was collecting grand slams between 1960 and 1980, associate this name purely with white-green sneakers, not the beloved tennis legend. These replaced the rows of perforations on both sides of the leather upper, through which air flows into the shoe and thanks to which the sneaker is more breathable. Occasionally you will come across a model where a portrait of Stan Smith is printed on the tongue of the shoe.
