Although this is the most recent Stan Smith luxury makeover, it’s not the shoe’s only luxury release of late. The brand collaborated with upscale luggage maker Porter on a pair of shoes using the Stan Smith silhouette, with the black colorway releasing Aug, 29 and the navy blue colorway releasing Sept. 12, both with a $120 retail price tag.

The Stan Smith was also featured in the U.S. Open pack, which hit stores Aug. 28 and retailed for $100. That shoe featured an all-white upper with orange on the heel and stamped Stan Smith branding on the tongue.
