Since its debut as a tennis shoe, the Stan Smith has made its way from the tennis court to the street, becoming adidas' best-selling shoe of all time, with over 40 million pairs sold. American tennis icon Stan Smith began wearing what was the world's first ever leather tennis shoe in 1971, when he won the US Open on grass and the Davis Cup on clay with the American team. In 1972 he won Wimbledon wearing the classic adidas shoe.

Originally introduced and developed for the French tennis player Robert Haillet in the mid-1960s, the name of Stan Smith was added to the tennis shoe, alongside Haillet's, at the start of the 70s, before it was designated as the signature sneaker of the American sporting icon in 1972.

The Stan Smith is available in leading adidas and Urban Athletics stores in the Philippines this January 2014.
