On December 14, 1946, American tennis legend Stan Smith was welcomed to the world. The man didn't just win multiple championships on the lawn; he also became the face of arguably the most popular casual shoe by adidas.
In light of Stan Smith Day, FHM lists some of the freshest collaborations—from renowned designers to streetwear brands—that breathe new life into the iconic pair.
Stan Smith x ACU and D-Mop
Chinese art is always a nice touch, especially flora and fauna. The classic style works well with the attention-grabbing blue print. Defnitely not for the wallflower.
Stan Smith x Colette
Not everyone is fond of the polka dots on the toe, but they actually add character to an otherwise uber-streamlined design.
Stan Smith x BAIT
These stoner-approved, hemp-constructed shoes were made in observance of cannabis day.
Stan Smith x BBC
Dollar and diamond prints are a bit loud, but the blue translucent outsole tells us this isn't your ordinary pair.
Stan Smith x Raf Simons
This collab is a low-key way to brag about paying six times what one you usually would for a pair of white kicks.
Stan Smith x Mastermind
Credit the black-and-white palette for its crisp and clean look. The skull and bones embellishment on the back adds the edge you'll need to win over that fashion girl you've been eyeing.
