Stan Split

Craig Green splits a Stan Smith in half
By Barry Pierce | Fashion | 12 September 2023

After unveiling their first collaboration during SS23, Craig Green has teamed back up with Adidas Original to put his own, iconic spin on the legendary Stan Smith sneaker. The two new styles, called CG BOOST STAN and CG SPLIT STAN, take innovative approaches to the Trefoil’s inimitable DNA and are guaranteed to be the only shoes you’ll be seeing in the Spurstowe over the coming month.

The CG SPLIT STAN sees Craig Green respectfully disrupt the heralded Adidas icon as the familiar form is sliced in half with a middle rubber protrusion inserted between the two segments. Pushing the leather and rubber sneaker to new extremes, the CG SPLIT STAN will be in three monochromatic colourways: white, black and khaki.

The CG BOOST STAN rethinks the very nature of footwear tooling – with a die cut upper sat atop a midsole and foxing all composed entirely of BOOST material. The look is completed with Three Stripe perforations, printed Stan Smith logos on the tongue and printed Trefoil branding on the heel moustache, just like the original silhouette. It’ll also be available in three colourways: white, black and silver.

The CG BOOST STAN and CG SPLIT STAN will drop on September 14th at, CONFIRMED, and via select retailers.
