PERFECT PARISIAN.


Well, well, well....what have we here?! I think for the very first time EVER, the Parisians are taking a cue from the Americans. I find there's a striking resemblance between the iconic Stan Smith pair from Adidas and the Étoile Bart leather sneakers from Isabel Marant. Is anyone else wondering if there's a hidden sneaker wedge in this pair from Ms. Marant like my favorite pair, Bobby?

The famous Adidas shoe was first created in the 60s, with the original concept of a leather tennis shoe. It was later renamed in 1973 after the famous tennis player, Stan Smith, who was ranked number one in the world.

It has gained another round of notoriety after being spotted in various editorial campaigns and on tastemakers around the world. But I do have to give credit to my elementary school coach at SVdP-- Jen was rocking the Stan Smith's during the 90s.

In 2014, Adidas re-launched the Stan Smith with an option for customers to customize their own pair. I'm a sucker for personalized things, so it will be difficult to choose between Stan and Isabel.


PERFECT PLAY-ER.
