Stan, Stan, he's the man

After being rebooted last year, these Adidas Stan Smith sneakers have been a street style favorite ever since. I was content at admiring them from afar because dishing out $75 for a pair of sneakers is a bit pricey for me. Also, as an extremely indecisive person, I couldn't decide if I wanted superstars or Stan Smiths more. But at the beginning of January I decided to bite the bullet when Urban Outfitters was having a $15 off $75 purchase. It was like the shopping deities were telling me, "buy these shoes now, you must." (Apparently the gods of shopping talk like Yoda.)

Yeah, unfortunately that did not pan out. But here I am, six months and six pairs of Stan Smiths later, and I finally have a pair that fit! It's been a long journey but I've finally made it-- high fiving a million angels!

On the shoes themselves, they're so classic. Even with the green I'm determined to wear them with everything-- long skirts, short skirts, shorts, jeans, whatever. In the summer I imagine they would be perfect with a bright, floral dress for that whole girly but sporty juxtaposition kinda thing. Size wise they definitely run big and are accommodating for wider feet. During the mini photo shoot I had (I was just so excited to finally receive them) I didn't feel any discomfort or potential blisters forming.

J. crew seems to carry them but the sizes are very limited. Or you could pre-order them for later this June at Nordstrom, or later this summer at Urban Outfitters.

    I love your gifs - you are just to cool :)
    And your Stans loom amazing!!


  12. i saw this on your instagram and felt totally jealous cos I'm having quite a hard time looking for this pair in my size. Penguin found his size online too so when I saw your post, I Immediately went to check UO. thanks so much for the info, I'll probably place my order soon since they have my size too! only downside is that they're pre order and I'll have to wait hahah.. but still. thanks Mili!!!

    xo, Carla

    stopping by your blog!

  17. I totally feel your pain, mine were a lucky find! From past experience the urban outfitters pre-orders usually don't take as long as they say they will. I hope you get your pair soon :)

  18. Yeah, unfortunately they are :( But there are many great similar canvas options :)

  19. aw, they look cute and I especially love the last gif where I can see your shoe collection (which I also like). anyway, I've owned two pairs of Superstars (bought them while going to the university). loved them back then but not today. today I think your Stan Smiths look so much better. ps. I didn't even know Sam Smiths existed before reading your post, haha so once again thanks for the enlightening.
