Adidas just unveiled a special-edition Stan Smith with Kvadrat fabric
German brand adidas collaborated with Danish textile manufacturer Kvadrat. Together, they released a special edition of its classic Stan Smith sneakers covered in dotted fabric. The collection features blue, grey and red versions.
Every shoe features Kvadrat’s Square pattern fabric, a design by danish designer Vibeke Rohland. The pattern consists of textured circles in contrasting shades.
The design of the shoes is exactly the same as the iconic Stan Smith but it doesn’t feature the classic triple stripes. The trainers have the classic leather patch on the heel and a white sole that echoes the Stan Smith heritage.
The Stan Smith trainers were created in 1963 and were originally designed as tennis trainers. The name of the shoe is a reference to the number one tennis player at the time. Adidas is constantly creating new version of the shoe but this is maybe the most different of them all.
Adidas has been working with 3D-printing technology to try with new ways of manufacturing shoes. Kvadrat is one of the world’s leading textile brands. Presented in three colorways, the Scandinavian textile company lends their high quality fabric to the classic tennis shoe.
Finally, there are three iterations of the new stan smith: in navy, burgundy, and light blue base layers with complementing tones for the polka-dotted patterns and leather heel tabs.You can find these new trainers starting from July 6th at select retailers globally.
