This purchase took me right back to the 70's - classic timeless look, fit and quality. In these days of Retro fashion, it's nice to see Samba at their very best.

The perfect fit.
If it ain't broken don't fix it. Stays true to the original design. I have been wearing this make and type of trainer for more years than I care to remember. They were in fashion then and remain in fashion now. Stylist and comfortable and a good price. I bought them on line and delivery time was good. Also used a discount code so got money off and free postage. Well worth visiting the on line store.

this product should be called SAMBA USA
it is totally diiferent to the much loved UK samba that was so popular on the terraces in the 70s and 80s . this version of the samba was available in the usa and totally different to its uk counterpart. please adidas , re-issue the samba as it was in the uk in about 1974. leather tongue with the classic blue tab on it... a true classic

multi use, timeless, minimalist and casual smart.
i'm self employed and love sambas because i dont need to wear awful office type shoes that city boys wax lyrical over. Forget polish, forget weatherproofing, forget runnign trainers, forget hiking boots, forget wellies. These bad boys are the most 'minimalist' shoe around as you can wear them for everything - lightweight, smart, casual and even better after a few years when they mould to your feet and look 'scruffed'.
If you want a smarter look with the sambas, wear a wool or tweedy blazer and denim jeans. casual look try sambas, jeans and grey t shirt. if you want to 'go minimalist' then take your socks & the inner cushion sole out.

Good as usual
This adidas Samba classic is a fantastic shoe. It is my prefered shoe for playing football and do other indoor sports. I tried all kind of makes and modells. Good control of the ball, but more importantly of your movements. Basically no suspension or whatsoever, but this actually makes it perfect. You feel the ground, maybe just like barefoot. The upper material is made of leather which makes it more robust than "plastic" materials and mould around your foot.
I also have the Samba Super (with suspension layer?), might look fashy, but to high to have proper control of movements.
