Adidas founder Adi Dassler designed the first Samba to give footballers sure-footed support on icy turf. Athletes took the low-profile trainer to the streets, and a footwear icon was born. Built with luxe materials, these Adidas Samba shoes show off the original 1950 design lines. The supple full grain leather upper features suede overlays and the signature T-toe.
The classic style of the Samba already completed the look of the fashion-conscious citizen in the 50s. The combination with high-quality materials and brand-typical details gave the sneaker an update to meet today’s requirements for everyday shoes.
We think that adidas Originals has succeeded. Thanks to the classic lacing system and the reinforced toe cap with a beige suede, the Samba supports a comfortable fit. The pre-shaped insole gently cushions the foot, while the rubberized cupsole provides a secure grip. The brand-typical 3-stripe design and the heel entry are clad in a royal blue and the gold-colored SAMBA lettering helps to make them look shiny.
