adidas Originals has been coming out with a number of monochrome colorways to satisfy consumers lately, with an all-black Stan Smith joining its 'Triple White' and 'Pink Glow' releases.

The sneakers make use of the simplistic Stan Smith construction that's popular among consumers for its versatility, as well as a 'Primeknit' upper, leather lining and a rubber sole. Though the all-black Stan Smiths don't deviate much from the monochromatic palette, the perforated Primeknit fabric gives the sneakers more texture with slight accents of white that appear underneath, replacing the classic three stripes.

In addition to this, the fabric allows the sneakers to be more flexible and breathable, making the wearer more comfortable over long durations. Like other Stan Smith models, the adidas logo appears near the heel of the sole, as well as on the bottom.
