Even though Stan Smith’s victory at Wimbledon in 1972 over Ilie Năstase was his only triumph at Wimbledon, it nevertheless played an important role in his remarkable life journey.

After 50 years, Adidas Originals has created the Stan Smith “Stanniversary”, a sneaker that pays homage to the shoes Stanley wore during his unforgettable match. The official Adidas webpage mentions the inspiration for the latest edition as follows:

The pair’s entire off-white leather upper is accented with hits of dark red on the tongue tags. Made with quality textiles, the tongues feature Adidas branding with Stan Smith’s portrait placed below. On the lateral side, the perforations are associated with the debossed lettering of Stan Smith.

The heel counters of the shoes are also made with premium neutral suedes. These suede elements on the heel tabs feature the coveted Trefoil logo with the player’s name added below.
