The Adidas Samba isn’t going away any time soon.
No matter how many cookie cutter fits you scroll by on your timeline or memes you see about the shoe’s shelf life expiring, there’s still plenty of mileage left in the Samba. In fact, it’s one of Adidas’ oldest shoes, with the original version coming out way back in 1949 (originally designed to play football on frozen surfaces in Germany) and the revamped model continuing to endure decade after decade. It’s gone from a shoe for soccer fans, an indoor soccer ‘90s classic, to punk rock and oi, now all the way to being adored by fashion blogs and downtown types. It’s one of those classic shoes where even when it isn’t in the trend cycle, it’s still extremely wearable and hard to go wrong with. It’s also available in a wide variety of styles, from OG-inspired iterations to limited-edition collabs and even vegan-friendly variations. Shop the best Sambas available right now below.
