History of Adidas Stan Smith Mid

In 1965, Horst Dassler engineered a unique design for the world’s best player Robert Haillet. When Haillet retired from the sport in 1961, Horst Dassler inked Stan Smith, another tennis superstar, to represent Adidas in the tennis sport.

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.
