NY-based clothing label Opening Ceremony just bypassed one of only two opportunities that comes around each four years to do something Olympic-oriented tied in with their name. Instead of getting in on the Sochi bandwagon, OC came up with some original content and treated the returning Stan Smith to an unexpected remix. The Opening Ceremony x adidas Baseball Stan Smith hightops have an upper silhouette that’s more like the traditional Pro Model without the Superstar shell toe, all atop the classic pegged outsole. The Baseball Stan Smith’s stripes are made of woven laces like a fielder’s mitt, and in doing so make the dual-branded tongue tags relevant. There was no release date reported on these but that’s because they’ve made a surprise appearance at retail, available now at Originals accounts like Politics.
