If you’re a shoe-gazer like the rest of us, you’ve probably noticed that the adidas Stan Smith has reached a new level of popularity lately. The remarkable model isn’t only available in the original flavor, and this Core Black colorway is a good take on the silhouette.

The pair is given a black leather build with a tonal heel tab falling in on the back. The ultimate contrast, however, is provided by a white tongue and outsole that it is sandwiched between. Overall, it’s a very clean look that isn’t heavily branded, but doesn’t need to be for you to know exactly what time it is.

The adidas Stan Smith Core Black is available now at select retailers including Titolo.
