Since 1950, the Samba has endured as one of adidas Originals' most popular designs. Initially created to help football players train on frozen outdoor pitches, the Samba is now synonymous with street style. These shoes showcase a leather upper and suede overlays that create an archival look and feel. They feature the classic football-inspired long tongue. They're finished with full grain leather 3-Stripes and a translucent gum rubber outsole.
