On my first real day of work at Adidas I wore my classic Navy Stan Smiths. The adidas Stan Smith has been on the market for over 40 years. Its one of my favorite leather sneakers because its very minimal with some variation on the heel and tongue. There are many limited variations outside of this but its a sneaker that is another classic in the adidas vault. At work I had the great pleasure of meeting Stan Smith and having him sign a pair for me. I went back and forth with having him sign my personal beaters since I wore them my first day... but I couldn't. I bought a pair of classic green and let the Icon sign them.
I've met a lot of really cool people throughout the years, but now that I am a part of this company, this was a really cool experience for me and I'm glad I have a true iconic pair of kicks to remember these moments by.
