The classics just got a little contemporary enhancement with this season’s rendition of the Stan Smith. A duo of Prime Knit Stan Smiths sit neatly alongside the classic leather make-up.

Starting it all off with the classic, there’s so much you can say about the wardrobe staple. Supple white leathers, and a hit of black accenting the heel, and Stan’s signature of approval make it such an easy wear season after season. If you don’t already have a pair in the wardrobe then do yourself a favour, you wont regret it.

Giving the Stan Smith a hit of Prime Knit maintains the classic silhouette, making it a little more streamlined, a little bit lighter, but maintains its form as a wardrobe staple. The sock-like knit upper keeps the crisp white blocking before a hit of either black, or green get added to the heel and tongue. All sitting atop its signature white sole unit to complete the perfect blend of contemporary and classic.

This season’s Stan Smith selections are now available both in store and online with all of the finer details after the jump. Make sure you head in to our Lower Grounds store located in the basement of our 15 McKillop Street store to check them out first hand.
