A lot of people now think I’m a shoe. They don’t even know I was a tennis player. The shoe has really taken on a life of its own, way beyond me – Stan Smith

Watch Stan Smith talk about the legendary tennis shoe named after him in this video by adidas:

Since its debut as a tennis shoe, the Stan Smith has made its way from the court to the street, becoming one of adidas’ best-selling shoes of all time.
Removed from the shelves for the past few seasons, the Stan Smith returns more clean and green than ever. Made with highly sustainable and premium quality materials, the famous classic white version is reintroduced for SS14 with the three most iconic heel tab colors in January and color suede versions, dropping in March.

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.
