The world of sneakers is ever-changing, with new trends emerging faster than you can lace up your kicks. But there is one sneaker that transcends trends to become a timeless favorite: the adidas Samba, a shoe with a rich history that’s as relevant today as it was in 1950.

adidas Samba’s Rich History in a Nutshell

The adidas Samba has skated, scored, and styled its way through the decades. Originally designed for icy European pitches, the Samba quickly gained traction (pun intended) for its grippy gum sole and comfortable fit.

It wasn’t long before the Samba transcended the football field, becoming a terrace culture staple in the ’70s and a pop culture icon in skate parks of the ’90s, and into the heart of fashion’s elite and celebrities like the Gallagher brothers of Oasis.

Its modern rendition walks a fine line between fashion and football. Today, it’s a fashion-forward favorite, the trusted companion to the who’s who of fashion. The A-list is obsessed with this versatile shoe, from supermodels like Kaia Gerber to trendsetters like Hailey Bieber.

Wales-Bonner-x-adidas-Samba hit record search volumes in 2023

Grace Wales Bonner’s 2020 redesign, with its crochet flair, propelled the Samba into high fashion orbit, while collaborations with icons like Jonah Hill and Jason Dill pay tribute to its skateboarding legacy. Today, amid ever-changing trends, Samba’s appeal is undiminished, proving that this adidas classic is forever in vogue, hitting record search volumes in September 2023.

The beauty of the Samba lies in its simplicity. Its clean lines and classic colorways (like, black and white) make it a chameleon, ready to be dressed up or down. Whether you’re rocking a timeless trench coat or a trendy knit maxi dress, the Samba seamlessly completes your look.
