Now available in South Africa, the Stan Smith stays true to its heritage in style and form but has been shaped and updated for multipurpose modern-day wear.

To re-launch this classic, various international and local influencers from the worlds of music, sport and screen have been recruited to give their unique and respected opinions on this icon to demonstrate the shoe’s versatile, wide-reaching appeal. Such talent includes international actors Will Arnett, Max Greenfield, athletes Andy Murray and Derrick Rose, singer-songwriter Sky Ferreira and DJ, Terranova, as well local fashion authorities.

Celebrated around the world, Stan Smith is an American tennis champion, whose namesake shoe was there when he won titles in major tournaments, including the 1968 U.S. Open, 1970 Australian Open and 1972 Wimbledon titles.
