In celebration of Black History Month, adidas continues to expand its Arthur Ashe Tribute Collection with a limited-edition adidas Athletics apparel pack and adidas Originals Stan Smith.
Both the apparel collection and Stan Smith’s will join adidas Basketball’s Harden Vol. 1, D Rose 7, and Dame 3 to honour the legendary tennis pro who became the first African American male to win a Grand Slam title.
The limited-edition Arthur Ashe x Stan Smith model was inspired by the on-court rivalry between the two and their off-the-court friendship. In honour of Ashe’s 1975 Wimbledon win, 1,975 pairs will be released. Black trim around the upper lining, a scholastic colourway on the heel tab and a stencilled face of Ashe on the tongue make this pair unique.
A polo shirt, shorts and a bomber jacket are included in the adidas Athletics apparel collection, available now at adidas.com. The Arthur Ashe x Stan Smith’s are slated to arrive in late February.
