As a person who has been used and loved Adidas Originals Superstar for a long time, using Adidas Stan Smith was a bit harder for me, which was durable and expensive.
I have always wanted a classical Adidas Stan Smith Green as well but I always thought it was way more expensive than its other competitors so I kept on delaying for a year. In the end of a year my parents finally found a great deal and they decided to buy it for me. I was really surprised and happy because I was never able to pay it. I was so happy that, I decided to wear it every single day. But there was a problem about it. Even though I literally bought it with the same size as my old Adidas Originals Superstar this shoes weren’t comfy as it. First week of Adidas Stan Smith was really hard for me. The back of my feet hurted so much that I couldn’t even stand wearing it. It put way to much pressure on my footbed.
This model obviously made a name for the brand so that’s how it became an iconic shoe
This shoes are hard to wear. Even thought I bought it, exactly in my size, the back of my feet bleed and hurt so bad. The feeling of it wasn’t bad in the middle of my feet. The problem is, if I wear my Stan Smith on a active day, I just can’t wait to come home and get rid of my socks and shoes. The thing is that the bottom of Stan Smith is not as comfy as I would like them to be. My foot feel sweaty and tired right after the day I wear it.
Adidas Stan Smith has a full-grain leather upper. Therefore it is much more durable than other competitors. I’m using that iconic shoes more than a year and except for a few scratch, it is very sturdy. It looks like they will last for years! But as I said before, that sturdy shoes are hard to wear for me. May be due to tight structure of shoe.. If you are planning to buy it, I recommend you try it in a real store. Wear and walk around for a while. If you feel a bit uncomfortable try half or one size bigger, and try again. Your idea may change! If you like it, be sure that it lasts for years! Very very durable shoes.
After a year of hard use, my Stan Smith shoes look like this 🙂 A few scratch, but still very solid!

I can wear shorts, leggings or a cute dress and throw this shoes on by still looking good. This model obviously made a name for the brand so that’s how it became iconic shoes. They are durable and expensive! Would I buy it again? No. Do I appreciate mine? Yes.
