micoach is all you need to get the results you want.
I never have played soccer, nor will I probably, but these shoes are very comfortable as they are light and fit very well to the foot. they also can take a serious beating be it running,hiking, getting dunked in water, tennis, and just about anything else you care to test them at. My last pair was about 2 years old, and the main reason I got new ones was because I had finally managed to wear down the back of the sole to the point at which the while base under it was showing. Support wise these shoes are pretty decent, however, I would imagine older people or simply those with flat feet might want to look into custom inserts, as these are certianly not running shoes. over the last 6 years I have owned about 5 pairs of these shoes, first the classic ones and the last two have been the millennium ones. All of them held up far longer than most shoes. the leather might look bad after a year and a half of rough use, but the shoes remain solid and I find after about a year or so they really start to mould to ones feet and get even more comfortable. I think another great aspect is the fact that these shoes are not flashy, yet they do not look like plain black shoes. on a side tangent, I wish this box to write reviews in were larger, all this scrolling is a pain. *ignore the what is my soccer level thing, as mentioned I do not play soccer.
Excellent shoe design. A little more substantial than the Classic design. Appearance is over done with too many logos, ice., the toe logo and the gold color addition give it a tacky look. Give it the Classic motif.... it looks more professional.
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.
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.
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 $60 on most websites. I accidentally got the wrong size on the first pair I bought and have them to a friend (who they fit perfect) and he pretty much says the same things I do about these shoes. They've become his favorite pair of kicks and he wears them any chance he has. All in all I can't recommend these shoes enough or say enough great things about them. I really hope these never fall out of production and Adidas continues to produce these with the quality standards they have thus far. Love you classic samba's. Never change.
I got my Samba's for my 13th birthday back in like 2005 (i'm 23). Samba's are THE UTILITY SNEAKER! Everyday wear, pick-up games, lifting shoes whatever. Surprisingly one of my favorite shoes to commute via bicycle on because of the sole's ruggedness. These shoes have been with me through college, trips through the middle east, and i'm still wearing them today in the gym and around town. Dear Adidas, Thank you. P.S. If we could get some white colour on the gum sole, you'd make one happy boy.
The inside sole of the sole is too thick, it very tightly pushes my foot to the roof the shoe -- and this is after I've loosened it. The problem is, the shoe isn't soft, it doesn't bend properly when walking, the result =it slips off from the back / the heel portion. I tried removing the soles and then walking; it seemed t alleviate the problem a small amount, however; the shoe was very minimally comfortable.
These are legit the dopest shoes on the market. Not only are they super comfortable, but they look amazing in addition to the tiro 15 training pants. I couldn't be happier with them, and they fit perfectly. Great job Adidas!
I love these shoes with a pair of decent khaki shorts and casual shirt. To me the guy that doesn't want to wear running shoes these are just right, and to guys that play or have played soccer you will understand what I am saying..
This shoe was worth every dollar and cent. For 60$, I got a shoe that was both stylish and versatile. Even after two months of constant use, my shoes still look virtually brand new, unlike my old shoes which yellowed and wore out after a while. My only complaint was that they were very, very tight when I first wore them, but they got better once I breaked them in enough. Another quality product from a renowned shoe manufacturer.
I ordered a size 10, which is the same size that all of my tennis shoes are. The length was fine. However, the width is definitely too narrow. I do not have wide feet either. Just the design of the shoe. I would not recommend for people with normal width feet or wider.
I am using this shoe for work. i work forty hours a week on concrete and my feet feel fine all day long. i have been using this shoe exclusivity for over four years and bought the current two pair so i have backups. They will last me a couple of years.
Let me start by saying that this is my second pair of Sambas. The first pair was bought in 2002 and I used them for a variety of activities and sports including Tennis and outdoor basketball. That pair was stolen in 2013. Yes, someone stole a pair of 11 year old shoes because they are just that good. When I set out to find a replacement, I was disappointed to see that the updated version had a different insole that placed some awkward cushioning under the medial aspect of the foot. After numerous attempts at finding an alternative, I ended up buying a pair anyway. The good news is that the extra foam that was bothering me was very easy to remove. Was able to peel it off in less than 15 seconds and these babies feel just like my old Sambas.
I'm a big guy. I have a size 14 W foot and I'm over 6 feet tall. I always wanted Sambas but didn't think that they would be wide enough. After talking with an Adidas online specialist and some of my soccer buddies I decided to try them out. I figured the return policy is good so why not. I am NOT going to need the return policy. They fit great right off the bat! Now after a few days, as the leather has broken in, I don't even feel the shoes on my feet. They are incredibly comfortable. I will never get another kind of sneaker. Sambas for life!
These Sambas have seen me through adventures from the Appalachian mountains to the far side of the world. They have hiked passes on the Rwenzoris and walked the cobblestones of Sevilla. When the shoelaces literally disintegrated to dust in the heat of South Sudan, I replaced them with construction line, then later with tough outdoor lashing cord. They took a beating in Bangladesh and have walked the streets of Kolkata for a year. Now the journey of these fine shoes is finished. RIP Sambas. #AdventureShoe — in Calcutta, India.
This is the worst buy ever. During my first indoor practice with these the sole came apart at the toe and the insole separated from the bottom of the shoe and ripped itself when it slid around when I was playing. The laces are of poor quality and the hole in which the laces go through (I don't know the name) ripped. Terrible.
I've been wearing sambas as my everyday shoes since the early 2000s and I'm sad to say they've changed the way they fit. This new pair is very narrow and crunches my toes up together. They are extremely tight around the ball and arch of the foot. I've worn them over 10 years because they were the most comfortable shoes on the market, but these hurt my feet. I decided to suck it up and wear them for 3 days thinking they just needed to be broken in but the result was just some very sad hurt feet.
What more can I say. I recently had to retire my Americano's. I've had those for nearly 4 years. I chose to replace them with the Sambas since they don't make Americano's anymore. It's exactly what I expect from Addidas. Once these babies break in it'll be even more comfier. I have flat/ wide feet and these are just perfect for them. The Suede hold up pretty well in the rain. I recommend these for everyday daily wear.
I just bought these and have only worn them for a couple of days. First thing I notice is that they are killing my feet. They are too narrow on the sides, and trust me I am not a wide shoe guy. I get alot of compliments that they look cool but I am not sure it is worth the blisters on the outsides of my feet. If you have super narrow feet, these are your shoe.
This is my second pair of these shoes, and the only reason I got new ones is because my first pair was scratched and scuffed. My first pair are still a perfectly functional pair of shoes, which I wear to work it. These shoes are comfortable, durable, and functional. I have used mine for: soccer, ultimate frisbee, biking, work, and casual wear. These are awesome shoes.
I have been wearing Adidas Samba Classics for years.....every day of the year. I have a walking disability and after many many tests of wearing many many other brands, the Samba Classic is the ONLY shoe I've found that not only gives my foot the support it needs, but is incredibly comfortable. I"ve gotten more compliments on these shoes....from total strangers I might add....than any other piece of clothing I've ever worn. I buy 3 or 4 pair at a time "just in case" something happens ....can't EVER be without my Samba Classics!
