In recent Stan Smith-related news (yes, we know there’s been a lot recently), adidas Skateboarding have put together an educational video about the man, the legend, Stanley Roger Smith. Although you may know Stan as a two time Grand Slam singles champion and one of the greatest tennis players of all time, you probably didn’t realize he’s been skating since childhood, dude was ripping rails and generally causing mayhem on the streets. With the Stan Smith Skate silhouette’s recent release at skateboard shops around the world, it’s time to get wise. It’ll be worth your while.
