adidas Golf x VICE Golf
The Stan Smith x Vice Golf footwear is built from the same tooling that exists in the Stan Smith Golf shoe first introduced early last year. It features an adiwear rubber spikeless outsole with traction inspired by the shoe’s original sole design and they reinforced the shoe in the medial and lateral sides to provide additional stability throughout the golf swing. The classic design makes it one of the most versatile shoes in adidas golf's range. For this limited-edition model, adidas collaborated with friends at Vice Golf on a playful and bold style to match the color-ways of their distinctive high-performance golf balls.
“Beyond the fact that we are both German companies, we see a lot of similarities in the way Vice approaches our sport from a design and performance standpoint,” said Masun Denison, global footwear director. “The great thing about the Stan Smith Golf silhouette is that it’s the perfect canvas to play with color and we’re excited for everyone to see these bold color-ways on such a versatile shoe.”
From Vice Golf founders Ingo Duellmann and Rainer Stoeckl:
“Combining the tradition and class of adidas’ Stan Smith shoe with our hidden and less-hidden design elements was incredibly fun! It’s a shoe to wear from early in the morning to late at night, on the golf course, at the bar, or wherever. We can’t wait to wear these!” The Stan Smith x Vice Golf footwear will come in three color-ways: solar red, signal green and white tint. Golfers will notice that the adidas 3-Stripes and Vice Golf logo appear on the medial side of the left and right shoes, respectively. Embossed on the heel is Vice Golf’s company mantra, ‘embrace your vice,’ and it wouldn’t be our Stan Smith Golf shoe without the signature endorsement patch from Stan Smith, which is featured on the tongue. The material for the upper is also made with recycled materials while still offering a one-year waterproof warranty.
