I’ve been holding out as long as possible, considering everyone I know and admire owns a pair… When I first started seeing the classic tennis shoe during fashion week, on my blogger buds, and throughout editorials, I was unsure of the Adidas obsession. Thanks to the Philo effect (seen here), Céline’s genius styling is to thank for the Stan Smith’s sartorial rise. Not only are they widely accepted by the fashion industry today, but are ridiculously comfortable and super affordable. That’s why a rainy day like today made me want to share the trainers that can be scuffed up and plummeted through puddles, and look even better after. Shop here.
