Custom Stan Smith of the Week: Stan Smith 'Grass Court’

Lazy afternoons, lawn sports, and picnics on the green grass

Social distancing has got us going mad, especially with the seasonal changes and warmer weathers. With the Stan Smith ‘Grass Court’ ($339), you can bring a taste of the season with you, and have the perfect shoe for bringing in better days.


About the Sneaker

Born Originals’ sneaker of choice for this design is the Stan Smith, the tennis shoe classic. The Stan Smith is a sneaker that combines supple white leathers with a durable rubber outsole, complemented by perforations that run down the uppers.

A standard of sneaker design, the Adidas Stan Smith silhouette in white/green colorway acts as a perfect canvas for Born Originals’ clean work. Retaining the conservative style, Born Originals chooses to use their brushwork as a design complement rather than reinvention. For a custom sneaker that has found popularity for its minimalist design, Born Originals makes an excellent decision.

In a careful, coordinated way, Born Originals paints a soft, grassy-green starting from the rubberized toe caps. As the green flows upwards, along the shoe, Born Originals’ paints slowly soften, splashing onto the middle of the uppers before speckling out past the first perforations. The laces are left in their original colors, untouched, as is the Adidas, trefoil emblazoned heel-tab.

With a perfect color combination of the white laces, pine-green heel tab, whites of the uppers and outsole, and the careful additions of Born Originals’ brush, this Born Originals creation is gorgeous, understated.

The result is a dream of a spring sneaker, with a perfect color balance between the greens, and whites of the original. Born Originals always knows how to design in perfect balance, adding and customizing with taste, class, and character.
