We always love to provide fresh takes on our classic silhouettes. This time we teamed up with Vice Golf on another fun collaboration to introduce the Stan Smith x Vice Golf, a limited-edition footwear model that will speak to golfers everywhere. Inspired by the unmistakable colorways that make Vice golf balls so unique, this version of our Stan Smith Golf provides an eye-catching design to our signature model.
The Stan Smith x Vice Golf footwear is built from the same tooling that exists in our Stan Smith Golf shoe that we first introduced early last year. It features our adiwear rubber spikeless outsole with traction inspired by the shoe’s original sole design and we reinforced the shoe in the medial and lateral sides to provide additional stability throughout the golf swing. The classic design makes it one of the most versatile shoes in our range. The difference with this model is that we collaborated with our friends at Vice Golf on a playful and bold style to match the colorways of their distinctive high performance golf balls.
“Beyond the fact that we are both German companies, we see a lot of similarities in the way Vice approaches our sport from a design and performance standpoint,” said Masun Denison, global footwear director. “The great thing about the Stan Smith Golf silhouette is that it’s the perfect canvas to play with color and we’re excited for everyone to see these bold colorways on such a versatile shoe.”
From Vice Golf founders Ingo Duellmann and Rainer Stoeckl:
“Combining the tradition and class of adidas’ Stan Smith shoe with our hidden and less-hidden design elements was incredibly fun! It’s a shoe to wear from early in the morning to late at night, on the golf course, at the bar, or wherever. We can’t wait to wear these!”
The Stan Smith x Vice Golf footwear will come in three colorways: solar red, signal green and white tint. Golfers will notice that the adidas 3-Stripes and Vice Golf logo appear on the medial side of the left and right shoes, respectively. Embossed on the heel is Vice Golf’s company mantra, ‘embrace your vice,’ and it wouldn’t be our Stan Smith Golf shoe without the signature endorsement patch from Stan Smith, which is featured on the tongue. The material for the upper is also made with recycled materials while still offering a one-year waterproof warranty.
