When i was 18 years old, I came home from Paris with two fashion trends firmly in my grasp 1) the white t-shirt layered under v-neck sweaters and 2) Stan Smith sneakers. Fast forward a million years, and i have rediscovered that the Stan Smith sneaker is awesome. Not only is it a classic fashion statement perfect for ripped jeans but super comfortable and just made for walking. Hello new travel shoes! Recently tried and tested on the hills and cobblestones of Lisbon — not a slip, blister or achy foot in sight.
Even better, you can now customize your Stan Smiths to nearly any combination that appeals to you. (Although classic court green still has a certain cache if you ask me)
$60 for the classic version, $110 customized. Available here.
