With the relentless wave of sneaker releases, it can be hard to keep sight of the shoes that you'll be proud to sport for more than a few months, let alone years. There are just a few select brands with sneaker silhouettes to which timeless can be attributed without question, and adidas is one of them. From the iconic Stan Smith, a certifiable part of tennis history, to collaborative pieces with the likes of Pharrell Williams, who also happens to be a pretty timeless part of pop culture.

The aforementioned adidas Stan Smith first stepped onto the scene in 1973, originally built for the court but becoming the go-to sneaker for the street. Now more than four decades later — when faced with the task of choosing a lasting white sneaker — our old friend Stan is still top of the list.

From the tennis court to the soccer field, the Gazelle is a low-cut classic that was released in 1991, designed for kicking balls. Years on, and it still makes the cut.

It's not only the Three Stripes' more retro silhouettes that will stand the test of time, though. If only for sheer unrivalled comfort alone, we'd place our bets on the adidas Ultraboost 19 remaining a rotation regular for years to come.
