adidas Readies a Minimalist Stan Smith "Japan SMU"

The adidas Stan Smith returns in a clean and eco-conscious "JAPAN SMU" colorway, following a look at Balenciaga's pre-distressed take on the silhouette.

The classic sneakers were renamed adidas Stan Smith in 1978 while maintaining the iconic design after being introduced by adidas as the first-ever leather tennis shoe in 1965 after French tennis pro, Robert Haillet.

The upcoming Japan-exclusive pairs have a simple design with lateral three-stripe perforations, smooth white faux-leather uppers, cream-colored heel tabs with Stan Smith's signature, and an embossed portrait of the American tennis star on the tongue tab.

Beyond the obvious, the "JAPAN SMU" pairs use "PRIMEGREEN" high-performance recycled materials for 50% of the construction, with recycled polyester materials coated with premium PU coating made in Japan to achieve the appearance and texture of leather.

The design is completed by creamy sole units made from natural and waste rubber for a sustainable finish.
