Fit & Sizing
The Adidas Stan Smith Mid is exclusively available in men’s sizes from 5 to 13 US in medium width. This pair runs true to size, but some users disclosed that this sneaker runs narrow. Thus, they suggest grabbing a half size up for a more comfortable fit. It features a lace-up closure for personalized, secure fit.
Adidas Stan Smith Mid Style
The mid-top Adidas Stan Smith Mid features the classic elements of the original but with an extended height of the upper making this a suitable pair for the lifestyle use.

The trademark perforated stripes found on the sides, add hip style and enhance the ventilation suitable for the warm days.
Most wearers can be seen sporting this pair with their jeans, joggers, shorts or sometimes with a pair of crisp slacks. Casual and even semi-formal guise will look fashionable with the Adidas Stan Smith Mid.
Adidas Stan Smith Mid History
In 1965, Horst Dassler engineered a unique design for the world’s best player Robert Haillet. It features 3-Stripe perforations on the side, which is not usual during that time. When Haillet retired from the sport in 1961, Horst Dassler inked Stan Smith, another tennis superstar, to represent Adidas in the tennis sport.
To make it different from the prior iteration, Adidas tweaked some minor details in the Haillet’s signature kick. The Stan Smith is made of full white leather with image and signature of Stan Smith on the tongue and full name on the shoe heel.
Many followers adored the simplicity of the Stan Smith. Almost two million pairs were sold worldwide in 1988. However, in 2012, Adidas halted the production of the Stan Smith in the market because they realized the oversaturation of the model in the market. However, after two years of being off the rack, the Stan Smith made a massive comeback.
The hallmark guise of the Stan Smith has remained unchanged for more than 50 years, which made it very popular. Recently, Adidas released a mid-top version of this classic silhouette. Staying authentic to the primary model, Adidas kept all the quality features and extended it into a mid-top. This shoe boasts its classic comfort but with better ankle support.
