Adidas Stan Smiths are, you know, fine, but like any white shoe, the main risk you take on when wearing them is the constant fear of getting them dirty. It's like, you take one wrong step crossing the street to buy your morning crack and all of the sudden a puddle comes out of nowhere to ruin your entire alphet. But with this "vintage" version, you won't have to worry about them becoming dirty and off-white because they're already dirty and off-white. Plus, you can skip that whole part where you spend the first two weeks walking like you've got a stick up your ass to avoid creases.
