Among the shoes in the cathedral of legendary Three Stripes silhouettes, the classic adidas Stan Smith, a silhouette originally designed for a tennis legend, may very well have the most exalted seat of them all. The best-selling shoe in the brand’s illustrious history, the Stan Smith has remained largely unchanged since first arriving to market in the early ’70s, relying upon its crisp, clean, and understated aesthetic to become a favorite of everyone from preppy teenagers to street-style conscious 20-somethings and gracefully aging tennis lovers. After receiving its very own retrospective book earlier this year, the Stan Smith is now arriving in a special “Stan Forever” edition, complete with special touches from its namesake. The instantly recognizable white and green color combo is left intact, but there are a few noticeable differences: Stan’s name is stamped in gold foil on the lateral side, and a small hand-scribbled “#stansmithforever” hit — in Stan’s handwriting, nonetheless — appears on the medial heel. The commemorative look is then completed by a handwritten message and signature from Stan himself that covers both insoles. If you’re looking to add a pair of these slightly tweaked classics to your collection, you can expect them to release December 1st at the retailers listed below.
