The End 2 End series, released in 2007, is the collaboration between adidas and Foot Locker, to create several shoes (and apparel), designed by an international group of influential graffiti artists.
This Stan Smith shoe, by Smart One, illustrates the extremely high artistic standards within the End 2 End series. The low cut silhouette is embellished in not only stylish print and embroidery showcasing Smart’s handy work, but quality materials and practical design. Making the shoe functional, stylish and unlike anything seen in a Stan Smith before.
The toe box and outer side panel are a dark grey, striped canvas material, the latter featuring a large, detailed, design embroidered into the fabric. The inner side panel is made of smooth, light grey leather, is decorated with an equally large Smart throw-up printed in white, black, red, and gray. The tongue is in a matching grey, with a red suede heel patch, both displaying Smart’s drippy, wild style tag.
The innersole, tongue trim, and eyelets are all a dark gray, matching the sole, which is finished off with a cream tread. The shoes come with gray laces and go great with the matching End 2 End Smart TT.
