Alongside a recent Adicolor iteration, this latest Raf Simons x adidas Originals Stan Smith consists as a more luxurious take on the iconic silhouette.

Boasting a bright yellow tone as its primary tone, just like the aforementioned pair, this model inherits a smooth leather construction instead. Its minimalist style overall is subtly detailed by the Belgian fashion designer’s “R” branding in miniature perforations, which essentially replaces the distinctive three stripe motif across its side panels.

Additional branding is seen on the heels via embossing, displaying the fashion designer’s full name. Furthermore, the German sportswear label’s signature trefoil logo is seen on the heel tabs in contrasting white, as well more traditional branding on the tongue tab which showcases a graphic of the legendary tennis player. Other details include tonal inner lining and stitching throughout its entirety.

Finished off with a full-length matching rubber sole unit and laces, you can find this pair at select adidas stores now for $400.

Author’s Take

This silhouette will always be stylish. This particular pair however is differentiated by its price. I’m a fan of the collaboration as well, but not for that price tag.
