Adidas Samba Review


The resurgence of the Adidas Samba has been quite refreshing. One would argue that the Samba is having a similar run that the Nike Dunks had for the past two years. In light of the high demand the shoe has, we must give a big bass shout out to Archive for blessing the public with access to the OG Adidas Samba. With that being said let’s take a deep dive into the world of Adidas Samba.


From a historical perspective the shoe has been around since the 1950s, so you know it has stood the test of time. The design lends itself to being versatile as the kick goes with anything, shorts, jeans, baggy fits, and slim cuts. The sleek low-top kick features a high-quality leather upper which means the shoe will look great with age as well.


Being that the shoe is so flat one would think that the Samba would not be great comfort wise. However, the Samba proves this calculated assumption wrong. It has a cushioned insole aids in giving ample support to help keep your foot comfortable. The padded tongue and collar add to the comfort and snug fit of the shoe.


Although the shoe has taken on a huge style persona it was initially created for performance. It is no wonder why it has the durable rubber outsole that has gives good traction for different surfaces. It is no wonder why the shoe is popular with soccer players and ultimately bloke core.


With regards to sizing, the Samba fits true to size, so you don’t have to worry about sizing up or down. If you want to fit them in store you can do your thing as you strut around the beautiful archive store mirrors (lol)


We definitely in our Samba era and this is a shoe that has stood the test of time. One can imagine that the Adidas Samba has many eras. If you are looking for a versatile sneaker that is understated yet makes a great statement, then look no further than the Adidas Samba. Since it’s a soccer affiliated shoe it’s a perfect shoe to just kick it in 😊
