If you’re looking to snap up these celebrity-favourite shoes, you’re in luck. Right now, these sneakers are currently 40 per cent off as part of Nordstrom’s Spring Sale.

What are they?

These classic tennis shoes have three perforated stripes along the side – a nod to the adidas signature logo. With a pop of colour at the logo tongue and heel, these sneakers are loved for their versatility, looking good with jeans and a tee, or a midi dress and leather jacket.

The Stan Smith sneaker has been around for more than four decades thanks to its timeless design and sleek silhouette. Named after tennis star Stan Smith, these clean-cut shoes have been loved for years by customers regardless of age, sex or celebrity status.

What people are saying

Loved for their versatility, elegant look and sleek design, these sneakers aren’t just loved by celebrities — they’re backed by more than 1,100 Nordstrom reviews, too.

“I had my first pair in the ‘80s and they were the best to play tennis in. These days I prefer to be barefoot, but when that’s not an option, the Stan Smith Sneakers fit very well!” one shopper wrote. “Simple and well designed… just like in the ‘80s. Plus, they go well with all types of outfits. A winner in style and comfort.”

“I purchased these Stan Smiths because I fell in love with the design and versatility. Then, I discovered that they are the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever owned,” added another. “I also get tons of compliments every time I wear them. I will definitely be on the lookout for more patterns and colour ways to purchase in the future.”

While the iconic trainer is loved by customers, most fans highly recommend sizing down a half or full size from your usual for the perfect fit.

“Stan Smiths are my favourite sneaker ever and I was glad to add this luxurious model to my vast collection. As always, they fit big, but that's to be expected, so I always size down to compensate,” one reviewer advised. :They always feel amazing on my feet and this one was certainly no exception.”

“Just as I hoped! I was concerned about sizing... I ordered a full size down from my normal and they fit perfectly,” another echoed. “They are so cute! I got the navy and I love them. They are sporty but will go with everything: shorts, jeans, summer dresses and skirts!”

The verdict

Celebrity status or not, these classic Adidas sneakers are an easy way to up your style without breaking the bank, or committing to a trend that won’t last a full season.
