Stan by me

…is the obvious song, ehm, sneaker by Adidas that all designers are into at the moment! I mean, we did see them on the various streetstyle ladies’ feet throughout the past couple of months. But who thought the crème de la crème of designers including Phoebe Philo (Chloé) and Humberto Leon (Kenzo) would be seen ON THE CATWALK in those sneaks of the moment? 

Here is the proof:

Phoebe Philo – Chloé S/S 15
Humberto Leon and Carol Lim – Kenzo S/S 15

The good thing is: Everyone can shop the retro-newcomer of the season (it’s reasonable in price) but the problem is: They are sold out nearly everywhere – bar from if you are ready to go that extra mile and put on men size clownshoe versions of it. Something I wouldn’t recommend anyone.

But for all those that are keen on getting their retro on but aren’t able to get their feet (haha) on any Stan Smith, here goes my advice: Invest in some Adidas Superstars. Yep, that’s right, those white ones with the super round cap. Remember, how everyone was wearing them back in the 90ies/00ies? I had a pair of pure white ones and they are the exact style I am thinking of getting RIGHT NOW! And who knows, they may just be the new It-sneaker for next season!
