Stella McCartney and Adidas have done it again. Their latest feature, the STELLA #STANSMITH, a classic tennis shoe which is now available in a vegan version. The iconic sneaker is made of recycled polyester and anyone who knows Stella McCartney knows that her models are in no way inferior to other leather shoes regarding quality. The British designer and the German sportswear brand have been working together successfully for over ten years now. The Adidas by Stella McCartney range is part of the Sports Performance Division and combines Adidas’s commitment to cutting-edge technology with Stella’s signature style, and more importantly, her message.

Stella McCartney is well known for her dedication in the fashion industry, and her commitment has inspired many designers to rethink their brands too. Since the founding of her fashion label in 2001, Beatle star Paul McCartney’s daughter has been committed to fashion that is ethically sound and for which no animal needs to be bred or tortured. So it is undoubtedly thanks to her that more and more brands are deciding to make their products more sustainable and to abandon the use of fur altogether.

To lead a life that is fair to nature and its resources,
does not mean to live without comforts.

Together with Adidas, she has now succeeded in creating one of the most recognisable sneakers without any animal products. They cost a proud 250 euros so if you want a pair, you’ll have to be willing to dig a little deeper into your pocket. So definitely not a bargain, but the remake is also equipped with some very cool details. Instead of the classic three stripes, small stars adorn the sides, the heel is striped in blue and red and on the tongue are portraits and signatures of Stella as well as tennis legend Stan Smith.
