adidas Skateboarding reveals Stan Smith's secret life of skate
"Stan Smith had an incredible style. I mean not only in dress sense, but also in the way he rode his board." - Marc Gonzales
"Mark Gonzales is like the Pablo Picasso of skateboarding but apparently Marc Gonzales is like a diet Stan Smith." - Tim O'Connor
In this exclusive interview, which includes never seen footage of his youth, Stan openly talks about his passion and his retrospective journey from behind the racket and onto the board with his new adidas Skateboarding Stan Smith model.
Stan admits that the original Stan Smith shoe was designed strategically with both the court and board in mind and is "over the moon" that he has been able to make technical adjustments for that premium board control and comfort. He also concedes that thankfully this model will be released in colours to match the rest of his attire – "unlike popular belief I do not spend my days in white and green".
