Everyone’s favourite trainer gets a designer treatment with a limited edition Stella McCartney and Adidas collab. Stella McCartney, who’s known as an environmentally-conscious designer gives the classic trainers an update using vegan leather – a first of its kind.
“Having worked with Adidas for over 13 years, I thought it would be such an incredible opportunity for me to be part of such an iconic collaboration with such an iconic athlete; and create the first animal free Stan Smith made with vegetarian leather and non-animal based glues.”, said Stella in an interview with i-D.
The new Stan Smith features the signature Stella stars on the side panels replacing the usual Three Stripes branding on the sides. For a touch of colour, the heel has a maroon and blue stripe.
Besides that, the tongue of the shoe is marked with the British designer’s face and signature on the left shoe. And to pay homage to Stan Smith, his face is printed on the right shoe.
The simplicity in design and the exclusivity of the shoes draw us even closer to cashing out on these cool trainers.
They are available in stores worldwide.
