In celebration of the global re-launch of the adidas Originals Stan Smith shoe – adidas had Crystal Birch, Jackie Burger and Arthur Malan-Murison tell their individual stories about their personal Stan Smith experiences. If you don’t know what a Stan Smith is – and no, it’s not Stan Smith from American Dad – it’s a global fashion statement from adidas, a timeless piece of footwear necessary in any wardrobe. My first Stan Smith encounter dates back to my teen years, when I skateboarded wearing them – I know I shouldn’t have, but they felt so good and provided the much needed comfort for such a daunting sport. They saved me from countless heel bruises, and I’m grateful for it.
