During his tennis career, Stan Smith won the U.S. Open and Wimbledon, was a member of seven winning Davis Cup teams and reached No. 1 in the world. The guy is a legend, having been inducted into the International Tennis Hall of Fame in Newport, Rhode Island, in 1987, but the title of his 2018 biography is, “Stan Smith: Some people think I’m a shoe!

Adidas’ Stan Smith tennis shoe debuted in 1978 and at the time, the leather shoe with its rubber outsole was state of the art. By today’s standards, it is minimalist, but the Stan Smith remains iconic and a versatile sneaker that is still worn today. Now, for the first time, Adidas is bringing the Stan Smith to the course by releasing the limited-edition Stan Smith golf shoe.

The spikeless Stand Smith is a part of Adidas’ Primegreen family, with over 50 percent of the shoe’s upper being made from high-performance recycled materials. The rubber outsole has lugs on the bottom to provide traction, but the shoe can definitely be worn off the course as well as on it.

The white kiltie is a nod to tradition, and it holds a gold-colored ball marker that features Adidas’ logo, but the kiltie can be removed.

The Stand Smith golf shoe will be available starting April 7 for $140.
