From the ground up

For the introduction of the new adidas Skateboarding Stan Smith sneaker, adidas presents the above “The Legend of Stan Smith” short film, where the tennis icon talks about his passion for skateboarding. The ironic short shows the pros from the adidas Skateboarding team, including Mark Gonzales, Matt Hensley, Tim O’Connor and Dennis Busenitz, each pointing out what Stan Smith has invented is or has become best known for in skateboarding.

“In this exclusive interview, which includes never seen footage of his youth, Stan openly talks about his passion and his retrospective journey from behind the racket and onto the board with his new adidas Skateboarding Stan Smith model.   

Stan admits that the original Stan Smith shoe was designed strategically with both the court and board in mind and is ‘over the moon’ that he has been able to make technical adjustments for that premium board control and comfort.”

All in all a very cool way of introducing the new Stan Smith skate sneaker silhouette.
