Back in May 2015, adidas Originals and Pharrell Williams had teamed up to introduce a Stan Smith “Jacquard” Pack. The pack included two different iterations of the adidas Stan Smith “Jacquard,” a Navy-colored and an Off-White-colored one. Both adidas and Pharrell ensured that the enduring and simplistic design of the Stan Smith would be retained, while a floral jacquard print was incorporated onto its uppers. The two colorways had a Navy-colored and Off-White-colored bases that were covered with vibrant hues featured in the floral aesthetic. Apparently, adidas and Pharrell have collaborated again to drop another floral jacquard-themed rendition of Stan Smith, but in its mid-top form.
adidas had introduced the Stan Smith as a tennis shoe, but it has managed to become an everyday sneaker. It was back in 1963 when the original Stan Smith sneakers had been produced for the very first time. Horst Dassler, the son of one of the brand’s founders, had come up with the idea for the classic leather Stan Smith model. The leather uppers of the original Stan Smith had been plain White-colored and the sneaker was equipped with pimpled rubber outsoles. Robert Haillet, the famous French professional tennis player, had even adopted the adidas Stan Smith as his sneaker of choice and the silhouette became associated with him.
The upcoming Pharrell Williams x adidas Originals Stan Smith Mid “Jacquard 2.0,” as its nickname suggests, is somewhat of a sequel to the Pharrell Williams x Stan Smith “Jacquard” releases from last year. Considering that it is the Holiday Season is underway, it is just about the right time for adidas Originals to drop a floral-themed sneaker like this one. The sneaker has Navy-colored leather uppers that feature multicolored, vibrant floral motifs throughout, while the colorway has been rounded out with all-White laces and soles.
For many sneakerheads, this is probably a second chance to cop a Jacquard-themed Stan Smith pair designed partly by Pharrell Williams in case they were not able to cop a pair or two last year. The retail debut of this Pharrell Williams x adidas Originals Stan Smith Mid “Jacquard 2.0” is scheduled to take place on December 14th and it will be available for $220.
