After picking up a pair of Stan Smiths here in the U.S, I recently found out about the International “Vintage” release which I believe is closer to the originals. There are some slight differences I noticed right away.

- The tongues on the U.S release are padded and not stitched at the top.

- The green back logo on the U.S release is leather while the “vintage” pair is a soft leather almost like suede.

- The “vintage” release comes with the retro card along with the history on the back.

- The leather on the “vintage” release is superb compared the the U.S release (Refer to last pic).

With that being said, I think it’s totally worth spending a bit more for the International “vintage” release if you’re in the U.S.
