In 1963, Adidas produced its first tennis shoes. They were also the first leather shoes for this sport and gave rise to the classic Adidas silhouettes. The upper part of the shoe is made of high-quality suede leather, the outer sole is rubber, and the inner part is made of synthetic materials.
This was the idea of Horst Dassler, the founder of Adidas, and Adi's son, to create a leather tennis shoe. In 1965, the model was named after the French tennis player Robert Haillet, but when he retired from the sport, Adidas decided to find another player to represent their shoe. That's where the American tennis player Stan Smith came in. By 1988, Adidas had sold about 22 million pairs, and the Adidas Stan Smith made it into the Guinness Book of World Records.
Adidas Stan Smith is undoubtedly a classic. Its lightweight silhouette will go well with anything, and everyone can choose their favorite color from a wide variety. The high-quality leather will serve well in both dry and wet weather.
