adidas Originals contributes to the Arthur Ashe Tribute Collection by transforming the classic adidas Stan Smith signature tennis shoe into a limited-edition version for Arthur Ashe. The Arthur Ashe x Stan Smith features a stenciled face of Arthur Ashe on the tongue, Black trim around the upper lining and the scholastic colorway on the heel tab. The concept for the reimagined Stan Smith signature shoe was inspired by the on-court rivalry between the two electrifying players who were also friends behind the scenes.

The adidas Athletics apparel pack features three performance oriented garments including a polo shirt, shorts and heavy-weight bomber jacket. The white polo shirt features a clean spread collar and hidden button placket, while accenting the back panel with a tonal three stripe color execution representing the scholastic achievements of Arthur Ashe. The pique color bomber jacket in white takes tailoring cues from the adidas athletics design language and features a reflective tennis court graphic on the back panel to commemorate the 1975 Wimbledon win by Arthur Ashe – a first for any African American. Rounding out the design story, the inside lining up the bomber jacket features a large portrait of Arthur Ashe and the shorts are maintained in a classic 8” tennis fit for durability on the court.

Look for the Athletics apparel pack for the Arthur Ashe Tribute Collection available now at adidas.com and the adidas Originals Arthur Ashe x Stan Smith will be available in late February.
