Bringing some special edition lifestyle sauce to the table, Paul Smith has teamed up with adidas and Manchester United on a limited-edition Stan Smith sneaker release, combining branding from all three powerhouse institutions.

Paul Smith has previous with the football world, but now the football connoisseur and British designer takes aim through a lifestyle lens, teaming up with Adidas for a Stan Smith limited edition release. Arriving as part of the AW22 season, the collaboration is a salute to the long-standing partnership between Manchester United and Paul Smith, which serves as the club’s official tailoring partner and outfits the team for match days, as well as a nod to Paul’s enduring respect for design classics. 

The sneaker design itself maintains the integrity of the original tennis silhouette – which was first released in 1965 – while adding Paul Smith’s signature witty twist. Made from premium cloud white leather, the sneaker features embossed line portraits of Stan Smith and Paul Smith on the right and left tongues, respectively, and their names on the uppers. Meanwhile, Manchester United’s iconic Red Devil logo can be spotted on the heel tab and the team’s red, white and grey stripe colourway feature on the insole, underside of the tongue and lace-ends. 

The run is limited to 1946 pairs worldwide, a number chosen since it is the birth year shared by Stan Smith and Sir Paul Smith.
