Adidas Stan Smith

stan smith

Adidas Stan Smith is a tennis shoe made by Adidas. Stan Smith was an American tennis star of the 1960s and ’70s. Adidas approached him in 1971 to endorse the Haillet shoe (designed for French tennis pro Jean-Louis Haillet). The shoe, usually made with a leather upper, has a simple design and unlike most of the Adidas range has no external stripes.

Instead there are three rows of perforations in the same pattern. There is a sketched picture of the tennis player on the tongue of the shoe. The brand is the biggest-selling tennis shoe ever.
