When it comes to sneakers, we’re all for trying out new upstart brands. As evidenced by our guide to 15 of them, they’re also a good place to look for a new take on the white sneak. But the classics are classic for a reason, and while venture capital-funded startups come and go, the Adidas Stan Smith is forever.
However, the price tag thankfully fluctuates, and right now Nordstrom is discounting the tennis star’s signature shoe to under $60 a pair for a limited time. If you’ve never tried them out yourself, or yours have a few too many scuffs you can’t get out even with a toothbrush, now’s the time to pick some up. And if you can’t get yourself to wear green, the dark blue edition is available at a discount too.
What makes the Stan Smith one of the best sneakers ever to be loop-swoop-and-pulled? There’s the pop-of-color colorway, which adds a bit of grass green to your otherwise staid outfit. Then there’s the sumptuous leather construction, Adidas stripes in a subtle perforation and of course the portrait on the tongue. But more than anything, the phrase “the whole is greater than the sum of its parts” applies to nothing so well as these sneakers.
