Around 1963 in the US, Adidas creates a new kind of sneakers. What is the particular thing about them? They are made especially for tennis players. The mind behind this fantastic invention and his father (Adidas’ owner) decided to name these shoes after the professional tennis player Robert Haillet. After, Haillet retired from tennis, they needed to find another representative figure for their shoes. This is when Stan Smith, the mythical nº 1 tennis player became the name and image of the historically famous sneakers (1978).

We wanted to catch Originals women’s attention by keeping its clean lines and subtle branding with new details relevant to today’s trends. This is how the Stan Smith Up (style name for the wedge version of Stan) was born. Since the original Stan has a perfect design already, of course we had to ask ourselves the question if it was actually allowed to change something about this shoe. The clear answer that we found was “yes”. But we knew that we had to be very careful with the adjustments and changes that we performed on the shoe. We knew that it would only work out well if we could make sure we kept the strong and timeless classic recipe of the original classic Stan Smith sneaker.
