The 'Stan Smith' Sneaker by adidas Gets a Reptilian Print Makeover

The 'Stan Smith' sneaker from adidas is perhaps best known for its clean white appearance, so this reptile print re-imagining of the iconic low-top shoe is certainly an interesting new departure from the usual.

The latest release by the popular adidas sports brand is the 'Black Reptile' colorway, featuring an all-over black reptile print skin upper, paired alongside a black rubber mid-sole to fit the overall theme. Silver-colored Stan Smith branding on the tongue and back heel also add an interesting extra touch of flair.

Perhaps most striking about this re-design is the new element of texture added to the sneaker. The reptile scale pattern adds an intriguing look to a normally very subdued sneaker design and makes this new addition to the adidas line of shoes all the more desirable to the fashion savvy.
