It's just a perfect shoe - when adidas first real east that shoe (like you said it was the French player Halliet who was the big cheese for them back then) it was the first all leather tennis specific shoe.

Now after almost 50yrs adidas keeps playing it smart marketing it to the masses - the S Smith is still found in the suburbs in the inner city on court (still a damn fine shoe) - its the one in a million that hits and goes on and on.
