adidas' legendary Stan Smith sneaker has been reinterpreted time and time again in collaboration with various partners and Stella McCartney recently joined with adidas to introduce the first-ever all-vegan leather iteration of the shoe.
While the design of the sneaker remains fairly true to its original form, the use of non-leather materials follows Stella McCartney's commitment to cruelty-free fashion and accessories. In celebration of Stella McCartney's birthday week, the shoes will soon be available online and in stores, featuring a design that replaces the iconic striped sides with Stella's star motif.
As well as putting an emphasis on cruelty-free materials, the collaboration also gives consumers the chance to trade in pre-loved pairs of adidas Stan Smith sneakers to get 10% a new pair of the Stella #StanSmith sneakers, which are available for both men and women.
