Looking to revitalize one of its most popular models, adidas is offering a new Stan Smith variation.

Covering the upper in Primeknit material, the brand makes the typically leather construction a bit more flexible on the feet, as well as more breathable. The heather gray fabric is complemented by laces in a lighter tone, in addition to a white accent on the heel and cream-colored soles.

adidas' branding appears on the heel of the sole and on the tongue of the new Stan Smiths -- ensuring that its name is known despite the unconventional look for the model. Apart from being more flexible, the use of the Primeknit material on the new Stan Smiths also makes the shoes warmer for the colder months ahead.
