The adidas Stan Smith has been officially labelled one of the world’s most important sneakers by the Brooklyn Museum. The iconic silhouette has been updated for 2016 with some original takes on the classic profile.

Since the first release in 1973, the famous aesthetic has made a clean crossover to street style from its origins on the court. The perforated 3-stripes have been on quite the journey. Let’s take a look at some of the updates.

First up we have the Stan Smith Comfort, which features three Velcro straps in place of laces. This style is super popular with the fashion set and street styles stars worldwide.


Then there’s the mid boot, a first for the Stan. This style is particularly good in the colder months, giving your ankles a little extra coverage. We’re big fans. Check out the men’s and women’s styles.


Finally, we’ve got a new and exclusive design that you’ll only find at schuh – the Stan Smith Floral (pictured top). This bold style is covered in beautiful flowers and succulent plants and finished with a pink heel trim. It’s blooming beautiful!

For some people, original is always best, and they’ll never veer from the classic Stan. Me personally, I’ll take them all. What do you think?
