White sneakers were one of the biggest trends of the 2010s and will likely continue to make waves as we enter into the next decade. The trend owes a huge debt to Adidas’ world-famous Stan Smith sneaker. The re-release of the '70s-era shoe in 2014 kickstarted the worldwide white sneaker obsession. In just five years, the pair has become ubiquitous—an essential in every sneakerhead’s collection and a closet staple spanning different style profiles and demographics. We bet you can spot the tennis shoe’s signature sleek frame, leather exterior, thick sole, and outer perforations from miles away. The popularity of the Stan Smith has prompted The Three Stripes to continuously update the silhouette since its original re-release, going beyond its classic white-and-green colorway. You might be surprised just how many different designs this pair has.
Here are 10 cool Adidas Stan Smith designs you can shop in Manila:
1. Stan Smith Shoes in Cloud White/Cloud White (P4800)
If you’re loyal to the goes-with-everything convenience of the all-white sneaker, you’ll love this iteration of the Stan Smith. The pair trades its OG green accents for a more minimalist look that’s ivory from toe to heel. You’ll be hard pressed to find an outfit or occasion that these kicks don’t complement.
2. Stan Smith New Bold Shoes (P6500)
Most versions of the Stan Smith feature design details and color accents on the heel and outer sides of the shoe, but this pair goes into a different direction with a matte black upper and a mint green line all across the top of the white sole. The tennis shoe’s sleek silhouette remains, but with a slightly dressier, more futuristic feel.
3. Stan Smith CF (P5981)
For those who just can’t be bothered with tying shoe laces, this pair trades in the Stan Smith’s classic white strings for some cute velcro straps—yup, just like you used to wear in P.E. class. It also features foiled gold accents on the Adidas logo on the tongue and heel for an extra bit of elegance.
4. Stan Smith Shoes in Icey Pink (P5316)
Obsessed with all things millennial pink? You’ll drool over these pastel Stan Smiths. The blushing shade is punctuated by white accents on the sole, tongue, and heel. While the back of the sneaker usually features Adidas' Trefoil logo on the back, this pair's got the name "Stan" on the left shoe and "Smith" on the right sewn in a distinct cursive font.
5. Stan Smith Shoes in Cloud White/Ash Grey (P4800)
While we’ll always love the Stan’s original bright green details, you can go for a more lowkey look with this iteration of the pair. The powder blue accents give the bulky sneaker a softer look. You’ll love pairing it with more feminine pieces like sundresses or flowy pants.
6. Stan Smith Shoes in Cloud White/Crystal White (P4800)
This version of the Stan Smith is just as wearable as its all-white predecessor, but with a little more distinction thanks to the pale sand-toned accents on the heel, collar, and tongue. If you love rocking nude-toned pieces and linen ensembles, you’ll want to add this pair to your go-to shoe rotation.
7. Stan Smith Shoes Core Black Floral (P4800)
The Stan Smith goes tropical on this floral update. It sports a predominantly black exterior decked out in paint-like illustrations of multi-colored flowers and leaves. You’ll spot the Adidas logo on the tongue standing out from the pattern in white, complementing the white sole. These kicks could amp up a plain jeans-and-tee look in a second.
8. Stan Smith Shoes in Cloud White/Bold Pink (P4800)
Add a touch of hot pink to your look with these Stan Smiths. When we see this shade accenting the white sneaker, we think punchy, powerful, and full of attitude. Barbie, Elle Woods, Regina George, Paris Hilton—what famous, pink-obsessed character wouldn’t love to rock these kicks?
9. Stan Smith Shoes in Cloud White/Scarlet (P4800)
The colored accent on the heel of the Stan Smith usually follows its curved shape, but this pair introduces a bright red square on the back overlapping the mold for a more geometric look. The rest of the silhouette stays clean and stark white. It’s also available in an eye-catching orange.
10. Stan Smith Shoes in Core Black (P4800)
Think of this pair as the OG Stan Smith sneaker’s more dark and mysterious sibling. The shoe’s body, laces, toecap, and sole are finished off in sleek, matte black leather. It’s accented with stark white details on the heel and tongue logo. Pair it with your grungier looks and all-black ensembles.
