You’ve probably heard by now that adidas Originals is relaunching the iconic tennis shoe, the Stan Smith. You may even be hanging out for the January 15 release date to get your hands on a pair of the clean, classic kicks. The shoe’s all-white design with green ankle-tab, and the ‘Endorsed by Stan Smith’ tongue graphic have long made it a favourite amongst sporting and sneaker enthusiasts alike.
Now there’s even more to get excited about. The brand is hosting an exhibition in Melbourne next week to celebrate the relaunch of the Stan Smith shoe. The event will honour tennis legend, and the shoe’s namesake, Stan Smith, and showcase art inspired by the classic tennis shoe.
From across the fields of sculpture, street art and photography, the exhibition features work from these Australian artists: Isabelle Cornish, Client Liaison, Anthony Lister, Daniel Riera, Gavin Brown, Sam Mitchell-Fin, Luke Cornish, Tai Snaith, tin&ed, SMLWRLD and Luke Henley x ACCLAIM.
The Stan Smith shoe will be available at adidas.com, adidas Originals stores and selected retailers from January 15. Check out the exhibition details below.
