By now most of you should know that adidas’ Stan Smith returns next year and as you can imagine, the German sportswear brand is celebrating it properly. Collaborations is one way of doing so and the first exciting one is just around the corner. Not for the first time adidas has teamed up with Japanese brand NEIGHBORHOOD. Their collaborative Gazelle a few years ago remains to be one of our favorite sneakers of the last decade. This time the brands worked on the iconic Stan Smith tennis sneaker. Shinsuke Takizawa of NEIGHBORHOOD gave the shoe for its 50th anniversary an elegant dark brown premium leather upper, playing graphics on the heel, tongue, and toe box. The sneaker will be released on January 2, 2014 at NEIGHBORHOOD HARAJUKU, at NEIGHBORHOOD SHIBUYA, and HOODS stores.
