In honor of the first day of spring, we’re hatching two new sneaker styles as part of our 2018 BNY Sole Series footwear project. This exclusive collaboration between our team and adidas includes fresh takes on the Stan Smith and Rod Laver classics. “In our previous adidas partnerships, we’ve only designed with leather, and we wanted to experiment with a white suede this time around,” explains Senior Men’s Footwear Buyer Chris Pepe.

The lighter silhouette is perfect for the warmer spring months and features a pop of color on the lining. “The dark green lining for the Rod Laver is a play on the original Kelly green color adidas released. The same goes for the navy leather seen on the Stan Smith.”

Adidas styles Pepe personally loves, the exclusive sneakers are available for both men and women. “Named after tennis stars, the Stan Smith and Rod Laver styles are true originals. The designs for this iteration are simple and an evolution of all collaborations we’ve had with adidas thus far.” This is the team’s first time working on a Rod Laver style, too, a process that they were happy to see come to fruition.
