Always looking to innovate, adidas is upping their commitment to the environment and expanding their cult-classic line of Stan Smith sneakers with a new, completely vegan version of the timeless style.

Originally launched in 1973, the sneakers have traditionally been crafted in leather. With adidas’s recent commitment to use only recycled polyester by 2024 though, they’re now being made with Primegreen, an innovative new fabric that’s derived from recycled materials.

Spotted on everyone from President Barack Obama to Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, adidas’s iconic Stan Smith sneakers are a must-have in any wardrobe.

The unisex style comes in a wire range of patterns and styles, which have all been updated with the new Primegreen construction for a sustainable upgrade that doesn't compromise the design's heritage. You'll find updated version of the classic colourways, including all-black, all-white, and the iconic white and green style.
