adidas Originals SS14 – Return of the Stan Smith Quintessential Gent 13 January, 2014 As part of their Spring/Summer 2014 collection, adidas Originals has re-released the classic Stan Smith trainer in a number of new colourways and designs. In the dog days of summer, it’s often the humble white tennis shoe that gets the nod for its sheer comfort and ‘breathability’, and when it comes to trainers few can compete with the clean, simple and iconic design of Stan Smiths. A holiday suitcase essential. There are, of course, other great contenders such as the Jack Purcell and the Nike Killshot but that’s a debate for another day. (Keep an eye out for a future post on ‘off-duty’ summer trainers.) The new adidas Originals collection will feature three leather options with different coloured heels tabs and an updated suede version in green, red and blue as pictured above. The leather options will be available from the 15th of January and you can get your hands on the suede trainers in March.
