I have worn Adidas Sambas for more than 25 years. They were the only sneaker shoe I have worn. I have been a loyal Adidas Samba owner and have had more than 40 pairs of them over the years. WHAT HAPPENED ADIDAS? Your 12.5 size is smaller than they used to be, while the 13's are still too big. The leather is hard and looks like plastic! I bought the last several pairs online because local stores no longer carry 12.5. With my purchase several months ago, I initially thought it was a mistake, so I literally bought another pair but they are still too small as well. I still have old pairs to compare them with and the new ones are smaller. SIZE MATTERS - SO DO CUSTOMERS What happened Adidas?
They fit a hair smaller than my other Sambas, but I fear they will crease if I go 1/2 a size up. Thin socks make them work. The leather tongue makes a squeak sound when I walk as it rubs against the inside.
It's been years since I last had a pair of Sambas. I decided to get another pair and I really wish I would have tried them again sooner. They are my go to every day shoes. Comfortable, great arch support and classic.
Love the look and feel of these shoes. The real leather adds such a nice texture and solidity, and the shape is gorgeous. The only thing I could possibly want improvement on is reinforcement of the heel part with the logo, and the toe, as they can be flimsy. Overall, amazing product, and I will be a regular customer!
Great comfort, seem to last forever and ever. I'm normally an 11 or 11 1/2 but a 12 in these fits perfect. Bought OG gazelles and size 12 was too big, should have ordered 11 1/2 in them, in case that comparison helps.
I love the classic Samba style and the colourway is fantastic. Unfortunately they come up nearly a whole size too small which makes them very uncomfortable to wear for a whole day. Standard delivery is also very slow, received over a week after the initial order.
I ordered these sneakers as a birthday present for myself :-) They are very cute, comfortable and stylish, they feet perfectly both, with dresses and casual outfits as well. I am size 37, I ordered 37 1/3 and they feet perfectly. They have become my favorite pair of shoes!
These trainers look fantastic and have a very robust construction. Compared to other Adidas Samba trainers I have had in the past these are on the small side making them slightly uncomfortable. I would definitely recommend these trainers but would suggest that you consider ordering a 1/2 size larger than your regular size - I thought they would loosen up but they haven't really so it's a bit late for me to change them now!
I have been wearing Adidas shoe since I am a youth, it perfectly fit me. I love the traditional but elegant design, light, comfortable and durable. I used it mostly for indoor activities and another pair for casual wear. Thank you Adidas!
The ones with the Large Tongue (indoor ones) will not squeak as much since the inner lining is more of a felt fabric. The ones without the large tongue have a synthetic lining and synthetic tongue which is causing the squeaking that many are complaining about.
Squeaking? Get some sandpaper and rough up the leather where the tongue touches the inner eyestay - no more squeak! I'm only putting 4/5 stars because it's a crime ADIDAS doesn't allow you to get the longer, ribbed CLASSIC Samba tongue on these custom kicks. These are my 17th pair of Sambas in the past 10 years. I love them all, but the CLASSIC Sambas have always been my favorite ... if only we could get some without that gross nasty raw gum sole
For nearly a decade I have used sambas as underway shoes. They are comfortable to wear. Their soles grip well on deck plates, even in machinery spaces. From the bilge to the treadmill, from hiking deer mt in Ketchikan AK to running around Manama Bahrain, these shoes have demonstrated versatility. The only thing I would prefer would be an American or Canadian made shoe.
These trainers are overpriced synthetic garbage. Just what part of the upper, besides the suede pieces, are "full grain leather upper?" I have had these for about 2 weeks and the creases at the toes have started to bubble where the creasing has formed. Mistakenly thinking that if I oiled them with leather oil, the "leather" would be hydrated and bubbling would stop, I applied several applications of neatsfoot oil - the same leather oil that I use to soften and waterproof my $350 Redwing work boots. Only, it seems the oil just evaporates rather than absorbs. Upon closer examination of the shoe upper materials, I am not sure there actually is any leather in the uppers at all, save for the suede pieces at the toes. The fact that Adidas is charging more for a product that is clearly inferior in materials and its ability to last than its Samba Classic predecessor, is deplorable. Will not be buying these again.
Never played indoor soccer, but I used this shoe for hiking, conoeing, caving, walking around town, school, church, pretty much every dang thing you can think of. I really love the style and reliability the most, but the comfort is also really good.
These shoes were meant to be for indoor soccer but are sooooo much more. These shoes are super durable and have a lot of grip. They have suede which makes them pretty good for skating too. They are very comfortable and when you compare them to a different type of shoe they feel a lot better. I would definitely recommend these shoes to anyone because they are great for sports, running, and just walking around.
Had a billion pairs of sambas in the past. Best shoes ever. These are not those shoes. Now I buy a pair and all of the sudden they're over a size too small, Way too narrow, have a huge arch, and "take weeks to break in." Adidas you have ruined your best product. Do not order these.
Bought these trainers as a Christmas present for my boyfriend after he'd admired them for months. Very classic Adidas originals style and look very smart on. True to size. Obviously need to be taken care of because they're white but other than that the leather is good quality and easy to clean. Look great with jeans and a polo or shirt. Very very happy!
Love the quality I bought this shoes for my father because it is the only one that he loves and feels comfortable in. He suffers a lot due to the width of his feet and it's hard to find the right shoe. But Samba never seems to fail us at all. I will continue to order these for him every year. Love it!!
These shoes are absolutely amazing. They're stylish, comfortable and I can wear them when playing indoor soccer as well as wear them casually to a event. Great quality as well. I definitely recommend you buy these!
I had a pair of the white classic Sambas and I used to rock them all the time, till the sole came unglued. I have been buying Adidas for 30 years and this never happened. Then my wife bought me a new pair and they changed the label on the tongue to red from blue. RETURN... If they change the label back, I might buy another pair and hope the sole stays in tact.
Comfortable, stylish, and affordable. I've had my (first) pair for over a year now and it still looks great despite how much I've worn them. The sole still looks near brand new, at first glance you wouldn't even be able to tell they've been worn at all. The arch support is great, and the all around comfort of the shoe is just amazing. These bad boys are super durable, look stylish and clean with almost any outfit you pair them with (retro sneakers are simply timeless) and are affordable on almost any budget coming in around $60 on most websites. I accidentally got the wrong size on the first pair I bought and have them to a friend (who they fit perfect) and he pretty much says the same things I do about these shoes. They've become his favorite pair of kicks and he wears them any chance he has. All in all I can't recommend these shoes enough or say enough great things about them. I really hope these never fall out of production and Adidas continues to produce these with the quality standards they have thus far. Love you classic samba's. Never change.
I can get cheap clothes but I never get cheap shoes because foot comfort is essential to a runner who has back pain like me. I love the look of these shoes, they are classic. But they also feel good on my feet after standing four hours in front of a classroom. So good all the way. Good surprise.
I got my Samba's for my 13th birthday back in like 2005 (i'm 23). Samba's are THE UTILITY SNEAKER! Everyday wear, pick-up games, lifting shoes whatever. Surprisingly one of my favorite shoes to commute via bicycle on because of the sole's ruggedness. These shoes have been with me through college, trips through the middle east, and i'm still wearing them today in the gym and around town. Dear Adidas, Thank you. P.S. If we could get some white colour on the gum sole, you'd make one happy boy.
I ordered my normal size 10-1/2 and they were too tight. I wore them several days and they did not loosen up. They eye so tough i could feel one of the dimples of the sole through the insole, which became all I could feel and caused shooting pain up my leg after two days wear. U sent them back and got an 11. They are way bigger than the 10-1/2 where my tour went all the way to the end. My toe ends at the beginning of the suede with an inch of room left. But, they are pretty comfortable and they look great with everything. I just wish they were a little looser for the proper size. All my other athletic shoes are 10-1/2, even other Adidas, and fit perfectly, but these were too small. Yes, they squeak. Haven't tried to fix it yet. One of the tongues folds up and hits my toes causing irritation. I think it is because the 11s are slightly too big. Hoping it well eventually break in. Wish they were all leather. The vinyl causes all of the problems: squeak, uncomfortable tongue, and too sweaty in bare feet.
The inside sole of the sole is too thick, it very tightly pushes my foot to the roof the shoe -- and this is after I've loosened it. The problem is, the shoe isn't soft, it doesn't bend properly when walking, the result =it slips off from the back / the heel portion. I tried removing the soles and then walking; it seemed t alleviate the problem a small amount, however; the shoe was very minimally comfortable.
