adidas Originals has been dropping new editions of the Stan Smith silhouette at a staggering rate over the last few months. We’ve had the “Triple Black,” the “Primeknit,” the “Triple Black Primeknit,” and even a pair with a cork midsole. But for this latest release, the Three Stripes has focused primarily on one thing: comfort.
The new adidas Originals Stan Smith Leather Sock uses a wonderfully soft one-piece leather upper to create perhaps the most comfortable Stan yet. It’s said to feel like slipping on your favorite pair of cotton socks, in part because the tongue itself has been laser-attached to the rest of the shoe to evade potential coziness-killers like seams and stitching.
In terms of design, the shoe is as elegant and stylish as you would expect, with fine silver-colored details at the tongue and heel providing a more luxury feel.
The Stan Smith Leather Sock is available at select retailers now, including Overkill.
The Stan isn’t the only shoe to which adidas has given some love and attention recently; this Gazelle was given a reptilian “Sliced Snake” makeover.
