Updating an Icon

We can always count on Stella McCartney to give us a new take on a classic. And as always, she’s nailed it.

In collaboration with adidas, Stella has updated the iconic Stan Smith sneaker and we are in love.

The laser cut Stella stars replace the three stripes along the side of the show, with a rainbow just visible underneath. You can choose white or rainbow laces, depending on your mood, and Stella’s portrait is stamped on the tongue of the left shoe while Stan’s remains on the right.

And for the first time, the sneakers have been made with vegan leather.

‘Using non-leather materials is the cornerstone of our ethos, as part of our ongoing commitment to cruelty-free fashion. The Stella #StanSmith sneakers are available online and in stores worldwide from the 10th of September, in celebration of Stella’s birthday that week.’

Roll on September…
