adidas Originals To Drop Sustainable Stan Smith Dedicated to Kermit the Frog

“It’s not easy being green.”

UPDATE (March 24, 2021): Back in December 2020, adidas Originals announced its collaboration with The MuppetsNow, the Kermit the Frog Stan Smith silhouette is set to drop later this month along with other Disney-inspired designs.

Featuring two iterations, the first style arrives in a minimal design, while the second pair is dressed with graphics of the iconic character. Both of the sneakers‘ uppers are crafted out of the brand’s sustainable Primegreen material, while the outsoles are made from recycled rubber. Elsewhere, the archetypal green heel tab sports the muppet’s signature catchphrase: “It’s not easy being green.” Take a closer look at the offerings above.

The Kermit the Frog x adidas Originals Stan Smiths will be available on March 29 exclusively at adidas’ website and its physical stores worldwide, while select retailers will receive a later launch date of April 1.


ORIGINAL STORY (December 20, 2020): Following the announcement of its sustainable 2021 Stan Smith, adidas Originals has unveiled the silhouette in a new design in collaboration with The Muppets. The sneaker features Kermit the Frog, one of puppeteer Jim Henson’s early creations from back in the ’50s.

Crafted from recycled materials, the shoe boasts a clean white leather upper with hits of lime green throughout. The iconic character’s name, “Kermit,” can be found on the lateral, replacing the original “Stan Smith” branding. Rounding out the style is the Kermit illustration placed towards the rear and part of the muppet’s signature catchphrase, “It’s not easy being green,” on the heel tabs. Take a closer look at adidas’ latest offering in the gallery above.

Reportedly priced at $90 USD, the Kermit the Frog x adidas Originals Stan Smith will be available in the coming months at adidas’ web store and select retailers.
