While the Samba was originally introduced as a soccer shoe back in the 1950s, it has found wide adoption in the decades since as a popular lifestyle shoe, having become a familiar staple in the three stripe outfit’s lineup. The Adidas Samba ADV is a skateboarding version of the silhouette, integrating all-new elements to allow excellent performance while riding your favorite deck.
Combining the iconic look of the Samba with skater-friendly fare, it reimagines the classic as a low-top skate shoe. Whether you ride longboards for your short commutes, enjoy performing tricks randomly on the streets, or spend entire afternoons sweating it out at skate parks, this thing should provide all the support you need to get through all those activities, all while adding a little retro style to your ensemble.
The Adidas Samba ADV has a leather upper, a durable suede toe in the classic T-shape, and synthetic overlays, with an internal mesh bootie ensuring a responsive and comfortable fit while keeping your feet dry. A molded clip locks down the heel on the back, with a molded polyurethane sockliner providing the necessary impact cushioning for those times you slip off the deck.
To ensure you can keep your footing on top of the board, it uses a directional herringbone tread pattern that boasts both excellent grip and board control. It comes in two colorways: black and burgundy.
Available now, the Adidas Samba ADV is priced at $75.
