    The adidas Stan Smith is one of the most beloved sneaker silhouettes of all time, worn by people of all walks and ages. Whether you’re a discerning fashionista wearing Raf Simons’ luxe take on the silhouette, or a suburban dad shopping at the local strip mall, the Stan Smith is one of the most wearable sneaker models on the market.

    Although it first released in the early ’70s, adidas recently updated the Stan Smith Asics Gel Quantum 360 Womens with contemporary technology like Boost and Primeknit, adding another chapter to the shoe’s legacy. But even as younger sneakerheads may be discovering new versions of what has been called the best-selling tennis shoe of all time, Tommy has been enjoying the Stan Smith for Nike Air Max Command Femme decades.

    I saw the adidas Stan Smith for the first time in the middle of the ’80s, it must have been around 1985. It was this cool guy in my class that got himself a pair, and my teacher, who was a woman, also had a well-worn pair. Already at that time, these two were speaking of the glory of the adidas Stan Smith.

    I bought my first sneakers in 1998 – a pair of Nike Tennis Classic, since I actually thought that they were softer. This sneaker was my favorite sneaker for a long time. Then I bought my first pair of Stan Smiths in 1990, but I never used them. Then,Nike Air Presto Femme in 1993 for my 20th birthday, I got my first ”real” pair from from my parents, and my interest really started to grow. After that, I have always been wearing them.

    Before and around 1993, the adidas Stan Smith was extremely popular in Sweden, and nearly every guy that I knew Nike Air Pegasus 83 Femme wore either those or the Nike Tennis Classic, those were the days in Sweden. After that, the sneaker market exploded, and there were also many other sneakers.

    However, I would say that both these sneakers (and nowadays mostly the Stan Smith) have stayed very popular in Sweden. I don’t really think there is a day when I do not see a guy here in Stockholm wearing the adidas Stan Smith.

    I was really excited when I heard they were going to be reintroduced! Actually, I think that they were reintroduced in the beginning of 2014 or at some selected places already Nike Cortez Femme at the end of 2013. I also like that the Stan Smith has become massively popular.

    Nowadays, when I go out of my house in Stockholm, I immediately spot someone with Stan Smiths, and age does not matter – both young and old people wear them. I hope that the trend will continue for some time! The trend is also worldwide – wherever I go, from Stockholm to any other city, the situation is the same, people like them everywhere.

    Now, since 2014, Stan Smiths are made in China and India, but I like the current versions better than when they were made in Vietnam (2001–2002) and Indonesia (2007), except for the adidas Stan Smith 80s that were made in Indonesia (2008–2010). I was also not a fan of versions from China around 1997.

    As for the versions made since 2014, I must admit that I like the classic Adidas ZX Flux Mujer Stan Smith with thick tongues in white and green (M20324) the most. This is the model that I wear mostly every day, both at work and in my spare time.

    In fact, the collaborations don’t mean as much to me as the original Stan Smith, but some of my favorites include releases Asics Gel Lyte 5 Femme with mastermind JAPAN, Bedwin & the Heartbreakers, and Pharrell Williams. Limited edition models like the “Cracked” and “24k Gold” are also nice.
