A legendary football shoe that has grown to become an icon of streetwear fashion, the Samba line has stood the test of time. First coming to prominence as an indoor trainer, the sleek, low profile shoes have evolved to feature more casual designs and functions. With dedicated clothing and sport-specific styles also available, the adidas Samba range is fresher than ever.
Born on the football field
One of the most recognisable and highest-selling models of all time, the Samba was designed by adidas founder Adi Dassler. First released in 1949, the sleek football shoes were intended for use on slippery outdoor pitches but rose to popularity as an indoor football trainer over the following decades. Featuring a distinctive gum rubber cupsole, the shoes deliver extensive grip and traction on a range of surfaces. Perfect for the directional changes and sudden stops common in futsal, adidas Samba trainers became admired by professionals and amateurs alike.
From the pitch to the pavement
Seamlessly transitioning from the football field to the fashion world, Samba sneakers have long been a part of popular streetwear culture. The gorgeously curved silhouette and iconic T-toe has drawn approval from the masses throughout the decades and continues to differentiate these shoes from the pack. One of the first adidas models to feature the characteristic 3-Stripes, Samba trainers have had an influential history and still ooze style today.
While evolving from sport to fashion, Samba shoes haven’t lost their focus on performance and durability. Featuring styles available in full grain leather with pigskin nubuck patches, comfort and sturdiness is delivered as in no other trainer. Suede and foil details give the shoes that extra edge you’re looking for. A soft and forgiving feel with a fit that moulds to the shape of your feet, these will be the comfiest shoes you’ve ever bought.
