To celebrate the relaunch of the iconic Stan Smith, adidas opened last month in London a pop-up store that was a scale replica of the iconic footwear’s shoebox.
Paying homage to the classic all white silhouette, the Stan Smith Shoebox hosted a custom installation featuring 120 Stan Smith shoes as well as experiences including an interactive floor, a digital ‘Stan Yourself’ station and a 3D printing post.
The Stan Smith pop-up was open to the public until January 19th. It offered a limited number of Stan Smith shoes to buy.

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.
