Adidas' new gore-tex-equipped Stan Smith is here
Wearing sneakers during the winter months is always a challenge. As you bulk up the rest of your wardrobe with sweaters, peacoats, and all the sturdier fabrics, you're often inclined to pair them with boots. Even when your look calls for sneakers, come November and December, the elements tend to disagree.
Despite that, there are plenty of winterized options of your favorite silhouettes out there. New to that list is Adidas's Stan Smith. Because today, the trusty sneaker you've likely been relying on for years just got a winter-friendly upgrade worth getting excited about.
Adidas added GORE-TEX's latest technology—designed specifically for footwear—called Infinium™️ Thermium™️ to one of its most ubiquitous shoes just in time. The shoe's toe box is equipped with the winter tech to ensure your cold-weather outing isn't ruined by a wet-sock-cold-foot situation, and all without adding any extra aesthetic bulk.
What you essentially have here is the same affordable, stylish Stan Smith sneaker you know and love, only equipped for that accidental puddle-step or spontaneous blizzard. Sure, a sneaker might not be the first thing you reach for the next time you're stepping out in single-digit temperatures. But now that one of your go-to's comes winter-ready, that all could be about to change.
