With a weekend full of releases including the Nike SB "Year Of The Horse" and the Air Jordan 10 Retro "Cool Grey" it's hard to whittle a week's worth of sneakers down to a single suggestion but this time we've gotta give it to the adidas Consortium Collection Stan Smith.

Late last year adidas announced that they would be breathing new life into their adidas Originals Stan Smith silhouette in 2014 and with the new year finally here their promise has been kept. Although the shoe has already been filtering back to shelves in various colorways, adidas grants their rarest return to a small group of shops around the world known as the adidas Consortium.

What we end up getting with the adidas Consortium Collection is the Stan Smith served up in four versions that put function over form thanks to the use of luxurious materials such as snakeskin, ostrich, cracked leather and aniline leather. With the lone pop of color being the green nubuck heel tab and the results are subtle yet stunning.

At $179 a pop these are gonna run you a bit and tracking them down may take a little legwork but SNS will be releasing them all at 6pm EST. Good luck!
