The Samba kicks were originally designed for soccer players but they eventually turned into a favorite for BMXers and other cyclists. The wide flat sole of the Samba was perfect for flat pedal shredding in the streets, parks and tracks. The new colorways show love to the cycling world with reflective laces and a city map graphic printed on the insoles.
The “Easy Yellow” and a “Core Black” feature full grain leather on the uppers and a classic water-repellent suede toe area.
“adidas founder Adi Dassler designed the first Samba in 1950 to give soccer players sure-footed support on icy turf. Since then, it’s become a beloved footwear icon and a favorite of urban cyclists. These full grain leather shoes have a sturdy feel. They’re designed to help protect bike commuters from the rain with a gusseted tongue and a water-repellent suede toe. Reflective laces and a city map graphic on the sockliner complete the tribute to cycling culture.”
You can get you feet in a pair for $120 USD. Both “Easy Yellow” and “Core Black” colorways of the adidas Samba OG will release March 1 on adidas.com and other retailers.
