One of adidas Originals’ perennial favorites, the Stan Smith has not only been loved for its classic, unadorned look, but its low-top version is also one of the most popular collaboration silhouettes favored by brands. To take things off the tried path, New York City’s 10.Deep opted for the Stan Smith Mid for its latest collaboration with adidas Originals to stay classic while being refreshing. The new Stan Smith Mid has been coined “Raw Dogs” after the rawhide laces and graphic monster mouth sock-liner used in the shoes. These graphics are adapted from 10.Deep’s ongoing series of sticker attack tees.
Aside from staying bare and raw with rawhide laces, the collaborative sneakers adopt high quality premium chrome and muted iron colored suede for the upper, and stays uncompromising on quality and construction. Save the colorful sock-liner, 10.Deep’s Stan Smith Mid is rather simple and minimal with understated and well-thought out details. 10.Deep’s logo is added on the upper in perforation and the other co-branding comes from a sewn on tag on the tongue and a special embossed logo on the heel.
10.Deep’s styling comes through in the “Raw Dogs” Stan Smith Mid and should put the lesser-seen mid-top Stan Smith on the sneaker map.
