These Horween leather Stan Smiths make a gorgeous addition to any sneaker collection -- but they double as stylish formal footwear.

The Stan Smith sneaker is a classic Adidas model that's made a hugely successful transition from the realm of athletic wear to the world of street style. It's undergone hundreds of streetwear revamps, including a recent collaboration with Pharrell Williams' Billionaire Boys' Club clothing line.

Now, the Adidas Stan Smith is adding formal wear to its style repertoire. Redone in Horween leather from one of America's oldest tanneries, it's all dressed up as an elegant shoe fit to be paired with a suit.

Where once there were stricter codes for men's formal wear, there's now much more room for self-expression, and the most leeway seems to exist in footwear and accessories like ties and pocket squares. These Horween leather sneakers are a perfect addition to a look that plays along the border between contemporary and conventional.
