Slick, beautiful leather.

Another day, another adidas release. It’s been a pretty cray week for adidas, with the brand announcing a huggeeee number of sneakers. First it was the glow-in-the-dark Primeknit, followed by the snakeskin Superstar, and then the fancy 24k gold-coloured Stan Smiths closed the deal. Or so we thought.

In a surprise twist, adidas has gone ahead and released yet another sneaker. Introducing the Stan Smith Leather Sock. Aesthetically it looks quite similar to the Stan Smith Originals, with the majority of the classic detailing intact. 

The difference in this sneaker revolves around the material, with the entire shoe made out of a single piece of leather. This creates a flawless, seamless, streamlined beauty that will become more and more comfortable with each wear.

These are available for purchase online from selected stores and are retailing for around $220 AUD.
