ABOUT STAN SMITH
American Tennis icon, Stan Smith, began wearing the world’s first leather tennis shoes in 1971. After two successful seasons, with victories at both the US Open and Davis Cup in ‘71 and the Wimbledon in ’72, the decision was made to officially christen the simple white leather silhouette to the Stan Smith.
Following the name change in 1972 the new Stan Smith sneaker took the stage with Stan’s name gracing the shoe box and his iconic silhouette image, added to the shoe’s tongue.
