After Three Stripes aficionado Gary Aspden spoke to SHOWstudio about the history of adidas Originals Stan Smith, the brand drops a bold new version of the classic tennis sneaker.

Fans of platform soles rejoice, as these fresh kicks get a ’90s revamp with an enlarged sole unit that adds more height to the tennis low-top. Apart from that, the sneaker’s usual signifiers remain intact, with a clean all-white leather upper and the signature Stan Smith logo sitting pretty on the shoe’s heel.

Look for the sneaker to hit retailers like Asphalt Gold in January for a retail price of approximately $126.
