Since it was first introduced in 1950 to give soccer players solid footing on icy turf, the Shop Adidas Samba has become one of the Trefoil Brand’s most beloved silhouettes — and now it’s releasing in an "MS" makeup inspired by the culture of another sport it boasts deep roots in: cycling. Arriving in a light "Easy Yellow" and a simple "Core Black," the Samba MS keeps the OG shape intact, but adds a few new details: a branded tab on the tongue enables easy on/off, and the midfoot stripes are lifted all the way up to the top of the eyestays, leaving their embroidered outlines on the lower half for a unique branded look. With cycling in mind the shoes pile on new performance features too, as a gusseted tongue and water-repellant suede toe cap ensure the wearer’s feet stay dry in even the most inclement conditions. Reflective laces and a city map graphic on the insole then complete the look.
adidas, while focusing heavily on bringing back the past, has not forsaken the future as it gears to bring back the iconic Buy Adidas Samba silhouette in a much more updated tooling complete with Boost technology. Prepped right in time for the advent of 2019, the newest iteration — which adds an "RM" tagline to its namesake — is quite a far cry from the original as it ushers in a sleek upper, translucent blue sole unit, and some fitting branding hits.
An on-trend thick platform sole adorned with additional embossed trefoil branding replaces the Adidas Samba Sale usually sleek and minimal midsole, while classic adidas branding on the lateral side of the upper and tongue make a return to ensure the shoe nods to its old-school roots.
Knowing that women don’t only want white sneakers with pink or other light-colored accents, the "Deep Hue" collection features premium suede constructions of the Adidas Samba Shoes in rich green, purple, and off-white tones with special threaded 3-Stripe detailing and embossed SAMBA lettering. All three also feature a clear gum rubber outsole and soft leather lining to complete the exquisite renditions of the iconic silhouette.
If only you could winterize All your kicks. That’s the idea behind the Adidas Samba Men's/Women's Winterized, which features the age-old adidas classic indoor soccer shoe redefined and remade into a cold-weather-specific mid-top with suede and leather uppers and a trail-inspired lace-hook at the very peak of the lace placket. The tonal grey colorway matches the winter clouds and although we’d much prefer warmer, more comfortable climates, it doesn’t hurt to dress up your feet.
