Nothing compares to the original: OG men’s Samba
The ultra-versatile adidas men’s Samba is an iconic staple in any shoe collection. Lightweight, comfortable and durable, this trainer is equally at home at the office as it is on the track. Released in the 1950s to give footballers traction on frozen ground, the original design featured a kangaroo leather upper and innovative gum sole for a firm grip. The Samba eventually gained popularity with other sports played on hard surfaces, including futsal and skateboarding, and became woven into popular culture as it crossed over from the sporting arena to a casual shoe.
Men’s Samba: a celebrated silhouette
The Samba’s minimalist good looks helped it evolve into an everyday favourite. Its celebrated silhouette features a leather upper with signature suede overlay to the toe box for extra durability. A foam midsole cushions every step you take and the classic gum rubber outsole gives you great grip on indoor surfaces. Serrated 3-Stripes stands out and the gold lettering adds a touch of class. While the men’s Samba is still a solid option for playing indoor football, its versatility speaks for itself as an essential modern sneaker.
The most hard-working shoe in your closet
Ideal for work, sport and running around on the weekends, the Samba goes with everything in your wardrobe. Wear it with a graphic t-shirt and a pair of shorts to walk the dog, or a polo shirt and jeans for a casual night out. If you are looking for sustainable shoe options, the classic Samba has also been revamped as a vegan shoe. Entirely free of animal-based products, this trainer has a super-soft synthetic upper with the signature T-toe and same iconic design. The men’s Samba is also available as a snowboarding boot that gives you top traction on snow and ice and a moulded foam liner for a snug fit.
