The appeal of high fashion has long been the subject of vehement debate. Many people criticize the excessive prices and frequently unorthodox designs. But even among the most contentious houses on the scene, none is as contentious as Balenciaga. Its forthcoming partnership with adidas has drawn even more criticism. The Stan Smith from the collection’s complications is likely to add gasoline to the fire.
The Balenciaga x adidas Stan Smith is a more distorted rendition of the silhouette. It is reinventing the complementary Triple S and Sock Runner. The original shoe has been thoroughly worn down by designer Demna and his team. It makes the sneaker’s general shape appear flat. Combined with the chiseled and distressed leathers used across the upper, the effect is a significantly aged (and more expensive) rendition of a well-loved tennis classic.
See below for a closer, more thorough look at the three upcoming colorways of the Balenciaga x adidas Stan Smith. The entire collection expects to be on sale tomorrow, November 3, along with these.
