The Adidas Stan Smith Reflective is offered in men and women’s sizing. Its upper is made of perforated leather which provides ventilation on the feet. This will keep its wearer’s feet dry and feeling fresh all day playing. Meanwhile, the synthetic inner lining and footbed enhance the overall comfortable fit.
Just like its predecessor, the Adidas Stan Smith Reflective is versatile yet stylish at the same time. It goes with tailored suits just as well as it pairs with crazy designed denim pants. But its true character is revealed during nighttime when light hits the shoe wherein it gives off a pop of light, which could add a fun twist to anyone’s nighttime ensemble.
The Adidas Stan Smith Reflective’s upper is crafted from a soft leather upper with the reflective 3M material. The Stan Smith’s signature 3-stripe perforation detailing can still be seen on both sides of the shoe. Its tongue is made from comfortable melded mesh with the Stan Smith logo on it.
The shoe utilizes rope laces with reflective 3M accents for its traditional lace-up closure. The heel patch is crafted from snakeskin with the brand’s Trefoil logo on it. The shoe has a padded collar and EVA midsole for comfort and cushioning. Lastly, the outsole is made of rubber.
First brought into existence in the 60s, the Stan Smith came from the bright mind of Horst Dassler – Adi Dassler’s son. The shoe was originally named after a different tennis player, Robert Haillet, but Adidas decided to change its name after a new endorser named Stan Smith in 1971.
The shoe’s simplistic design proved to be a hit through the decades and has been named the best-selling shoe in sneaker history. Different brands and designers have reinterpreted the Stan Smith in many different ways throughout the years, eventually sealing its place as a streetwear staple.
In 2014, one of the various iterations released is crafted with a fully reflective 3M upper called the Stan Smith Reflective. It is equipped with the same classic design and is available in different colorways.
- It comes with an extra pair of laces.
- The Adidas Stan Smith Reflective in the tonal black colorway features black stitching in the midsole, seen from the midfoot to the forefoot of the shoe.
