When four different partners come together and their collaborative input turns out to be a simple, unadorned and basic, it attests to the timelessness of classics. Beauty and Youth United Arrows, Bedwin and UNDFTD came together to not only recreate adidas Originals’ favorite collaborative canvas, the Stan Smith 80s but has also designed a capsule men’s collection inspired by the clean-cut, smart and straightforward look of the Stan Smith 80s.
The collaborative effort, the Stan Smith 80s BBU is kept contemporary and classic with the narrow Stan Smith silhouette, and the upper is remixed in canvas for a lightweight, ventilated wear perfect for summer. The insoles are crafted from cork bed for extra cushioning. Aside from the blue and red leather accent in the heel panel and lining, the rest of the Stan Smith 80s is kept minimal and unadorned, true to the original Stan Smith spirit. The shoes are set to launch on May 1 at Beauty & Youth United Arrows, and apparel pieces from Bedwin and socks from UNDFTD will follow to complete the looks. Stay tuned for more information to come from the quadruple Japanese collaboration to come!
