The Black Denim Adidas Stan Smith


Another week, another Stan Smith. Yet even as we acknowledge Adidas' seemingly endless conveyor belt of redesigns of the versatile tennis shoe, we'll admit that the German sports giant is yet to let their standards slip.

Case in point - the new "Black Denim" is an absolute triumph. Doing away with the original clean leather of the Smith, the Black Denim favours a complete denim cotton upper - a fabric choice that threatens to result in endless double (or even triple) denim pairings, but we're sure you'll find a way of pulling it off.

The three stripes have been reduced to a row of perforations, while the tongue and heel tab have been reworked in black leather. 


Extra detail has been added to the heel stitching, with added cotton strips echoing the inner lining of a pair of denim jeans, revealed by the (currently acceptable) turn up. 

Yet to arrive with UK retailers, you can pick up these special Stan Smiths from European store Suppa for £81.
