Another target that I have been having my eye on for a long time: the very (too much?) popular Stan Smiths. We see them everywhere and however, we don’t get tired of them.
But here’s the catch: My size is out of stock (38 2/3 to be precise) given the frenzy that followed when they were reissued. I even looked for them in Japan, but same statement in the Land of the Rising Sun. Back in France, I came to accept this until I saw a pair of Arthur Ashe on Instagram: White sneakers, same shape, same spirit.
As a result: here they are on my feet with this« sporty-preppy » outift : a plan B which is far from disappointing. Comfort, design, I love it all. And, I think Arthur Ashe was a better tennis player than Stan Smith… victory by Ace! Game Set and Match, Arthur Ashe! (English translation by Daphné)
