One of the most iconic tennis shoes of all time, the Stan Smith, is back. And it’s ready to make waves all over again. With a new silhouette, the Stan Smith sneaker is poised to reclaim its place at the pinnacle of the market. Not to mention its thriving status as a sports and lifestyle phenomenon.

Now available in South Africa, this global fashion icon has been re-shaped and updated for multipurpose modern-day wear.

And what a return. Actors Will Arnett and Max Greenfield call it a timeless classic. Singer-songwriter Sky Ferreira and DJ Terranova are singing its praises. Athletes Andy Murray and Derrick Rose declare that it represents excellence. Even local fashion authorities Dion Chang, Jackie Burger and Kojo Baffoe have voiced their excitement.

The man behind the legend.

World-renowned American tennis champ, Stan Smith, wore his namesake shoe when he won the 1968 U.S. Open, the 1970 Australian Open and Wimbledon in 1972.

Transcending far beyond its success as merely a tennis sneaker, this famous shoe has become revered as a style icon. Loved for its clean, streamlined aesthetic by designers, editors and collectors alike. As a result, the shoe has been re-introduced in numerous colours and fabrics over the years. Not surprisingly, becoming adidas’ best-selling shoe of all time. With over 30 million pairs sold to date.
