The iconic Stan Smith sneaker is getting some upgrades this year, but adidas didn’t stop there. For the first time in the history of the brand, adidas Golf is bringing this classic silhouette that has transcended sport and style to golfers everywhere. In preparation for the first major of the year, adidas is introducing a limited edition – Stan Smith Golf – to give golfers a versatile and more sustainable option to sport their style on the course.
Always iconic, now more sustainable, this limited edition spikeless version of the shoe features a PRIMEGREEN upper made with high-performance recycled materials. The distinctive green colourway makes a statement that speaks to the brand's journey to END PLASTIC WASTE.
“I’ve had a front-row seat to see how this shoe has evolved over the years, so to see it make its way to golfers while also using sustainable materials is really something special,” said Stan Smith. “It shows the versatility that this shoe offers to everyone and it will be fun to see it bring some additional style to the course.”

In addition to helping the environment, this version of the Stan Smith utilizes an adiwear rubber spikeless outsole with traction inspired by the shoe’s original sole design. The small lugs will give golfers traction when they need it, but the versatility to wear the shoe anywhere. The brand also added a die-cut PU sockliner and additional PU cushioning in the midsole to provide golf-specific support in every step. Subtle features like a removable white kiltie that houses a gold-coloured ball marker with our Trefoil logo also give the well-known model some distinctive characteristics to push on-course style even further.
“The Stan Smith is one of the most recognized footwear silhouettes in the world,” said Masun Denison, global footwear director, adidas Golf. “The shoe has become part of the wardrobe for so many people over the last few decades, so to finally bring that same vibe, personality and style to the course is something we know a lot of golfers will be excited about.”
The limited-edition Stan Smith Golf will come in the traditional Originals blue shoe box and will contain a commemorative dust bag to help keep the shoes looking fresh, round after round.
The footwear will be available on adidas.co.uk, through the adidas app, and at select retail partners worldwide beginning Wednesday, April 7.
In addition to the above, in the U.S. the footwear will be available exclusively to Creators Club members. It’s free and easy to join. To become part of the Creators Club, sign up here.
