I have been a loyal Sambas wearer for the last 9 years or so. A single pair of shoes last me a year and a half, and then I keep hold of them so I can have them as work shoes for activities such as mowing the grass or hiking in the mud. These shoes last forever, can slip on and slip off, look great, are very comfortable, and have a pretty good tread. I do a lot of walking and hiking, and I wear my Sambas through it all. I even played Tennis in my Sambas all through high school, and they were fantastic for that as well. I would not recommend running in Sambas, however; purchase actual running shoes for that. But overall, there is truly no better everyday shoe out there.
I bought a pair of these in February, & I've hardly taken them off since. They've become my "thing" among my friends. I purchased the classic white & black, & despite the gold details, they go great with everything. They were extremely comfortable from the first time I put them on. They didn't require any breaking in. The fit was great, other than that I had to lace up the very top hole & I have to retie them throughout the day to keep my heel from slipping out when I walk. This is probably because I wear a women's 8.5/9 & this is a men's shoe, however. They breathe well & my feet don't get too hot wearing them. Really comfortable to walk around in all day. I'm looking forward to buying more in the future!
I'm usually a UK 9 but ordered a UK 9.5 for these and they're perfect! So maybe try go up 1/2 a size or a full size up. Other than that shoes are amazing. Material is perfect. Very Comfortable shoes. Delivery was very fast for standard delivery. Find it much easier and cheaper to order from here then go to a local shop even though it would be faster.
These updated Sambas look and feel great. My old Sambas were a little narrow and the arch support did not fit quite right. The new Sambas I purchased online a couple of months ago fit perfectly. The Adi logo on the back of the heel and on the top on the tongue add a dash of style to an otherwise plain shoe. They are comfortable enough to wear everyday, but are durable enough to be worn for indoor soccer as well. I highly recommend the Sambas and would purchase them again.
I love these slides and have had multiple pair. When my last pair wore out, I order a new pair, like always. But you changed them! They used to have a nice soft inner lining portion of the upper strap. Now it's rigid and feels cheap. I'm sure there's a reason for the change, but it's not a good change. Please bring the old version back!
I love these shoes, these would be my third pair -- so I felt confident buying online. I looked at my old pair and purchased the sizing accordingly. But what arrived was the mens sizing. I thought these shoes were sized unisex and I ordered them while in the women's section. A bit confusing and annoying but I will try again once my refund comes through.
These have to be the nicest looking pair of trainers out there in my opinion. Adidas' attention to simple, sleek timeless classic designs with no over the top details, is a winner for me. It's products like this that set Adidas above Nike as a premium sportswear brand but with one eye firmly on fashion.
What I like best about the Sambas by Adidas is the flexibility they afford me when deciding which clothes to wear them with.I can throw on a caual pair of cargo shorts or a light or dark colored pair of jeans or khakis and the Sambas are a perfect match no matter what.The Sambas have that dressy sneaker look that appear to be a blend between a sneaker and a casual shoe ideally made for long pants.These shoes are also excellent for long walks. Very few sneakers are design to be three shoes in one.I'm a size 15, which meant I had to use the custimization option which goes up to size 21.Tried a 14 and these shoes do run true to size.I bought the white with black stripes.
I really wanted to give my Adidas Gazelles a high rating, I really did, but something odd has happened with Adidas over the past few years. Every pair of shoes that I own are 45s (10 1/2)...every pair, which includes a pair of Gazelles bought 4 or 5 years ago (made in China) that fit perfectly. Unquestionably, 45 is my shoe size. However, recent purchases from Adidas have been painfully small….literally. I bought a pair of Gazelles a couple of years ago (made in Vietnam), but after I squeezed my feet in to them, I realised that they were far too small and I slung them in to the darkest corner at the back of the wardrobe. I was hoping that this was an anomaly, but my latest attempt at buying a pair of Gazelles from the online store found that these were also too small and had to be returned...45s, it seems, are no longer 45s in Adidas World. I love Adidas Gazelles, but it's a waste of time buying them from the Adidas online store. Better to visit one of their retail stores and try a pair a size or two up.
It took me a month to actually become owner to a pair of these shoes... It was literally sold out everywhere, and even while I was looking, I had my doubts. I'm speaking sensibly here - no gushing about how 'perfect' these are, but really. When they came, they looked exactly like the photos, and it seems to be great quality as well. I'm a U.S. Women's 7 generally, and size 6 in these fit fine - a bit roomy, but that's how I like it and it can be easily fixed with thick socks etc. Overall, I'm very pleased with the project. Plus the shipping was very quick.
As there was no female model (I use 8), I bought male in size 6 1/2 (I decided for this size after a email with this recommendation from Adidas). I bought these tennis to use everyday! It's sturdy and very hip! I'm in love with this shoes.
These were my third pair, because pairs one and two were fantastic. Unfortunately, these squeaked so much, I stopped wearing them. Opponents could literally hear me before they saw me! The squeak comes from the tongue rubbing against the upper. I checked my older Sambas, and the upper has a felt-like layer around the lace holes that prevents the tongue from making direct contact with the leather of the upper (an easy enough fix I hope to see in future editions). Although I would not recommend the ones I bought, I will be back; Adidas' customer service was great, and sent me a return slip so I can send them back for a 100% refund. Can't ask for more that that!
I bought these shoes and they were great. However, like many other reviewers here, I found them to be quite squeaky. I am here to provide you with several solutions that will solve your problems. The squeakiness comes from the tongue rubbing against the sides of the upper around the collar area. In order to reduce and eliminate the squeaking, we must treat this particular area of the shoe. Here are several methods that have worked for me: 1. Put some Scotch tape on the top of the tongue. The different texture of the tape means that it doesn't rub against the leather collar of the shoe, thus eliminating squeaking. 2. Rub some lotion onto the upper part of the tongue. Just take some hand lotion and rub it into the top surface of the tongue. This will moisturize the leather and reduce squeaking. 3. Rub some Vaseline into the tongue. (Same method as #2) 4. Apply a small amount of water to the tongue and wear the shoes immediately. Walk around in them to work the water into the rubber and leather of the tongue and this should solve your problem. I hoped this helped. I have been a loyal Samba owner forever and just wanted to let everyone know that there is a fix for squeakiness!
I've seen a few people write that a lot of Adidas seem narrow. That's not it. You have to unlace their shoes and lace them back up. The difference will amaze you. Adidas may have made a couple of fashion tweaks to it but this is the same superstar that people have loved. I wish they left the logo on the tongue white but the shoe still looks good. It's still a very comfortable shoe.
I was looking for this product everywhere and it had been sold out on the run up to Christmas and after in sales. However I took a browse through the adidas website and they released these shoes on New Year's Day... Ordered straight away because of the popularity of the shoe and within days it was delivered and packed in the best of manner. Very pleased thanks adidas :)
