If the idea was to kick off the new year with something eye-catching, the design team at adidas Originals has it down to a science. After the launch of the Iridescent JS Wings from its adidas Originals by Originals with Jeremy Scott line last spring, the label is set to release adidas Originals Stan Smith 80s Mid, with identical iridescent application, for its Spring and Summer 2011 collection. An all-synthetic upper with gradient of colorful sheen and golden metallic base, contrast against an all-white outsole, all-black lace and insole, the design is finely tuned creation without going over the top. Well, at least for some people... No confirmed date thus far, but the adidas Originals Stan Smith 80s Mid Iridescent is expected to arrive at select adidas Originals retailers around the month of May 2011. Freshness will certainly keep you posted when more information is available.
