At the beginning of the season I swore to myself that no matter how I liked the Stan, I wouldn't get my hands on a pair, first, because they look like they are the new Air Force, a shoe that everybody wore through the past two years, and second, I decided not to be yet another victim of the Adidas' -successful, I must admit- marketing policy. And there it was, that black/leopard combo that made my heart skip a beat and got into my online shopping cart without even noticing. I am a proud Stan Smith owner and I am not afraid to tell. The iconic model, dated back to the 1970s, endorsed by the famous American tennis player, Stan Smith, looks so unbearably stylish in its new animal print look, and it is sure to make even the toughest fashionable hearts melt. At least, I didn't get the white/green version I was intending to.
