One of the Three Stripes' most iconic shoes is back and has been upgraded with a modern look and materials for some top-shelf, vintage-inspired contemporary flavor. Originally introduced in 1950 for the purposes of allowing footballers to effectively train on icy, hard surfaces, the Samba is adidas' second highest selling sneaker of all time behind the instantly recognizable Stan Smith. Fast forward to 2018 and the modern-day disciples of Dassler have ditched the traditional materials in favor of Primeknit for a breathable upper with maximum dexterity and flexibility. The bootie-style entry and sock-like fit of this pair goes for superlative comfort while keeping your foot feeling locked-down and secure. The gum outsole puts the cherry on top with a tip of the hat to the Samba's original look and style.
The adidas Originals Samba Sock Primeknit can be purchased in store or online, and if you want to see this pair in person we are located at 147 W 72nd ST on Manhattan's Upper West Side. And also, remember to check out the rest of our adidas collection here.
