Just a quick post and a few picture today for one of my latest pickups and a sneaker that you guys should probably stop sleeping on, the Concepts x Adidas Originals Stan Smith. This killer collaboration is yet another from the Cambridge-based team, who seems to have the collaboration business down to a science. This particular collaboration sees Concepts teaming up with Adidas Originals to give us an updated take on another one of my favorites, and a legendary Adidas model, the Stan Smith. As we've come to expect, Concepts finds an interesting way to switch things up on their take of the Stan Smith, choosing to utiilize an all woven textile upper that dons a snakeskin print throughout, along with some additional key details like a neoprene sock liner and a cork insole. Like a true Concepts collaboration, the Stan Smiths were presented in a special bright yellow Concepts branded box that typically is used for Concepts in-store collaborations.
I missed these when they released back in October of last year, but got lucky and scored these from 23Penny for a nice price of $125 shipped, pretty sure he still has a few sizes left at that price, definitely don't sleep on these for that price. Check out some pictures of the Concepts X Adidas Originals Stan Smith EM and let me know if you think these are another well executed collaboration from Concepts.
