So, I've not long thrown a pair of these babies out from my tomboy school days, but it now seems that the Stan Smith is making a full blown fashionable come back. And I have to admit, I am loving it!
Even when I originally had them (trend setter over here) in school, I was obsessed. Something about the simple, chunky yet still elegant style always drew me to them. The plain white with a dash of colour, be it green or navy, has always looked pretty slick. Now, I have to admit, these days I am definitely more of a stiletto type of girl rather than trainers. Well, until now.
After seeing Phoebe Philo, creative director of Celine, rocking these on the catwalk earlier this year, I was intrigued. Had I re-gained my love for these tomboy tennis shoes?? I thought to myself that, after all these years of being trainer free, could I really swap my boots and heels and resort back to the shoe I had during my awkward teenage boy phase?! I then saw Camille Over The Rainbow looking ever so chic in a pair, and I was sold.
I can't wait for mine to arrive now. I really struggled to even find a pair in my size, so I would suggest that anyone looking to own a pair needs to act fast, because I have a feeling they are going to fly off the shelves. And there's nothing worse than begrudgingly paying over the odds on eBay for something that you have missed out on (something I am all too familiar with).
Anyway, I knew I was cool all those years back...
What do you guys think, are you convinced by this retro come-back? Will you be rocking your Stan Smith's this Spring?
