Player: Robert Haillet
Year Released: 1964

Robert Haillet had the first leather adidas tennis sneaker in 1964. After some confusing combinations of Haillet's signature combined with pictures of Stan Smith, the adidas Robert Haillet eventually became what we all know today as the Stan Smith. Can you imagine having a Kobe sneaker with a picture of LeBron on the tongue? Thankfully, sneakers have evolved and things are less confusing. Nonetheless, the staying power of the Stan Smith as one of the greatest tennis sneakers of all time makes the adidas Robert Haillet the most successful "one and done" signature line ever.
