Adidas Stan Smith boasted Adidas's then-new Primeknit upper

The Adidas adidas stan smith silhouette, created by Horst Dassler, the son of company founder Adi, debuted in 1965 as the first leather tennis shoe and had French pro Robert Haillet’s name on it. But when the German company aimed for a stronger U.S. presence, it turned to Smith.
