ALL IN THE DETAILS: Sneak Peak

Classic and timeless: two words to describe the adidas Stan Smith that have been the latest sartorial obsession since their reissue in 2014. These tennis shoes have reached their peak in popularity and have developed the ultimate cult following. They’ve become the iconic sneakers in the industry and there is no better time to wear them than right now. From Pharrell to Gisele Bündchen to your favorite fashion designers, the Stan Smiths have ingrained their cultural mark in the industry quite indefinitely and have cultivated a new revelation of our generation.

Despite making a huge comeback in the fashion world, the Stan Smith’s haven’t been a huge hit here at University of Illinois. Believe it or not, this was the first Fashionista I’ve seen wearing the iconic tennis shoes around campus all summer. Fashion-forward and well color-coordinated, she paired them with a striped black and white romper and black sunglasses. The romper adds on to the sporty effect created by the sneakers, which makes this look borderline athleisure—another growing trend in the industry.

The evolution of the classic Stan Smith has made it easy to wear them with just about anything. Although first a shoe notable on the tennis court, it now covers a broader realm of style off the court. These clean, simple sneakers have taken the fashion world by storm and have won a place in everyone’s closet regardless of differences in personal style.

How To: You, too, can implement the timeless adidas Stan Smith into your wardrobe this summer. Pair them with your favorite jeans or a romper of your choice and you are set for the season!
