THE SILHOUETTE SHINES: The adidas SLEEK
When one thinks of the perennial tennis sneaker, adidas is often the top of mind brand thanks to arguably the most popular shoe of all time. World-famous for its clean, subtle design, the Stan Smith has been the epitome of the white sneaker for decades now. But the brand behind the Stan Smith looks to shake things up.
adidas, a brand known for always pushing for innovation, looks to stir the status quo with its modern take on the “tennis sneaker”. Made especially for women, the newly-designed SLEEK series draws inspiration from timeless design elements and re-imagines these for a modern, everyday sneaker for the modern woman.
Although looking ahead, the SLEEK still looks back to the past via the perforated Three Stripes branding. The Brand with Three Stripes recognizes that they must have done something right with the Stan Smith for it to be one of the most popular sneakers on the planet and thus they emulated the clever branding on the classic.
To take the SLEEK to even further heights, adidas made use of premium patent leather that’s supposed to mirror iconic tennis styles while still being uniquely SLEEK.
Unabashedly retro, the SLEEK prominently features a logo window next to the laces which gives off a vintage Three Stripes vibe.
If you’re a fan of clean, no-frills design, the adidas SLEEK is one of the best sneakers out in the market today. These are dropping at Capital and you might want to pick up a pair.
