It comes as no surprise that Stella McCartney has designed the first ever vegan Adidas Stan Smiths. Constructed entirely from vegan leather, the high-end, zero cruelty trainers, have already been catching the eye of the fashion tribe.
Stan Smith’s Go Green
Stan Smith’s where first launched back in 1963. A staple piece for any fashion-forward wardrobe, this new version does not look much different from the originals. According to the Evening Standard, the Stella McCartney Stan Smith are not grass green, instead the heel is colour-blocked with navy and burgundy stripes and stamped with McCartney’s logo, and the three adidas stripes down the side are replaced with lines of tiny stars, punched into the leather. Stan Smith’s profile remains sketched on the right tongue, however now the left one features Stella’s portrait.
Famously known for not using any leather, skins, fur or feathers in any of her products, the cruelty-free designer has been collaborating with Adidas since 2005. Before the trainers, McCartney worked with Adidas on a high-tech range of luxury sport bragging her signature look. Also, the British womenswear designer has not been shy about wanting to adopt various innovations that she can implement into her design process. A great example is her collaboration with Bolt Threads.
Priced £235.00, the trainers will be available, for both men and women, on 10th September 2018. If you prefer, you can pre-order from StellaMcCartney.com or in store now.
