The adidas Stan Smith is a perfect example of top footwear. In the first half of the 1960s, adidas decided to release the first tennis footwear made out of leather. It was, among others, Robert Haillet who wore it while playing. When he retired, adidas had to find a new professional to represent the tennis line of footwear and clothing. In 1971, Stan Smith – no. 1 in the global ranking – was chosen. Although the tennis shoes were given the name Stan Smith, the word Haillet disappeared from the language only in 1978. So we can assume that it was precisely in that year that the iconic sneakers officially became the model we know today.
adidas Stan Smith – more than fashion
In 1988, 22 millions people chose the adidas Stan Smith shoes and this very number was listed in the Guinness World Records. In 1994, the number increased to almost 24 million pairs. In the ranking of the world’s 50 best tennis shoes, the adidas Stan Smith is in the fourth place. At the same time, it was placed in the top ten of the world’s best sports shoes. In 2014, adidas brought the Stan Smith back. The sneakers immediately entered Europe’s top list as one of the bestsellers. One can find them in fashion shows, at school, on a bus, worn by famous show business celebrities, and, of course, on Distance. Currently, the adidas Stan Smith has been one of the most fashionable models for several seasons. But it is not only to its design but also to its quality that it owes its popularity. The best materials, precision of manufacture, and technologies – that support walking on various surfaces – contribute to the progressively growing success of the company.
