Rather teased this month by the Japanese designer in a video, then officially unveiled a few days ago via various photos posted on Instagram, the Human Made x adidas Stan Smith is therefore restyled in a simple and effective way. Keeping its original design created in 1964 by Robert Haillet on behalf of the German company, the Stan Smith, which owes its name to the English tennis player since 1978, retains here its white leather dress, as well as its traditional touches of green that adorn not only the tongue, but also and especially its heel. A benchmark look copied many times but rarely equaled by most other brands, looking for a model of fine and sober shoes.

The particularity of this Human Made x adidas Stan Smith lies in the reorganization made by Nigo of the ventilation holes located on the outside of the shoe and originally forming the three stripes of the German brand. For the occasion, they are redesigned in the shape of a heart, emblem of the Japanese brand. On the inside, we find the three adidas guts, also perforated for the blow in the shape of hearts with a red background. One way to mark this Stan Smith with the Human Made seal, but also to celebrate the upcoming Valentine’s Day in advance. We also find the original white midsole, as well as the tongue marked with the name and portrait of Stan Smith.
