^ stan smiths are a dumb idea for a wm colab. 

next seasons wm adidas should be better though

^second shoe is the best of the collab footwear. spectus shoe co doe.
kind of wish they didn't go for stans/zx flux tbh. feels like a real copout going for mainline shoes; too safe i guess? iunno. guess it makes sense from a "casual" sneaker use perspective (duh) but i was hoping the collab would be some weird ass hybrid hiking boot or smth. maybe dig some old eqt trail stuff out and give wm treatment. imagine a wm eqt badlander???

^they're so ugly yet i want to wear them. at least zx flux are treading into the territory of functional rather than stans so it's a step in the right direction

I thought that the WM collab is really weak but I like these details. There is also a white/white variant, moreStan-Smith_White-Mountaineering_marine_6

got some black suede stans a few weeks ago and i love them but they fit a little small (aus distributors don't have half sizes) - is this the general consensus?

^one of my main gripes with this model and others is how they don't utilize same textiles for the entire body, just the side panels.  they do this shit for colors too! for example the superstars side panels vs. their tongues.

m8 it looks like patent leather from toe to tongue

edit: or is it full patent

Pretty sure the whole shoe is full patent, but sschad is right my vintage stan smiths use different leather (shitty too) at the tongue but the body is smooth and decent. Cut corners...

i've always found the material adidas use to be pretty average (regardless of whether its leather or suede) but their soles seem to hold up considerably better than nike and the rest.
