Andy’s shoes, the adidas Barricade 8 :
Founded in Jersey City, NJ in the summer of 2013, REDVANLY is a stylish, modern brand that was created to raise the bar for athletic apparel.
“We are a brand that stands above the rest by doing things better in every single category. I built this company to give athletes around the world a better option to choose from. My vision for REDVANLY is to eventually be recognized as the ultimate brand in athletic apparel”
The line consists of a variety of tops for both men and women, with plans to add bottoms (tennis shorts and skorts) next summer.
The fabric combines a blend of “water hating” Polyester and “water loving” TENCEL. The two work together to efficiently grab liquid away from the skin and push it to the outside of the fabric where it will evaporate much faster than your typical athletic apparel.
The REDVANLY line is exclusively available on their website.
A global fashion icon will be reborn in 2014 as the legendary Stan Smith returns from its sabbatical. Removed from the shelves for the past few seasons, the classic silhouette has been re-invigorated and updated for the modern day while still staying true to the look and shape of the original.
Since its debut as a tennis shoe, the Stan Smith has made its way from the tennis court to the street, becoming adidas’ best-selling shoe of all time, with over 40 million pairs sold. American tennis icon Stan Smith began wearing what was the world’s first ever leather tennis shoe in 1971, when he won the US Open on grass and the Davis Cup on clay with the American team. In 1972 he won Wimbledon wearing the classic adidas shoe.
To celebrate the return of the Stan Smith, a host of international talent from the worlds of music, sport and screen came together to reveal what the sneaker means to them.
Watch the trailer below featuring Stan Smith and Andy Murray as well as actors, artists and designers.
