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 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.
Been a loyal adidas fan since I was in 10 years old (25 now), over that span I've owned 4 pairs of Superstars, one of which being the original Superstar I's, (now defunct. why is that?). Bought another pair and I guess they rebranded the 2's as "Superstar Foundations." They fit a bit bigger than my last pair, the laces ARE thinner, and where are the lace locks?! adidas, WHY do you keep on trying to reinvent the circle? Why mess with the classics? If it ain't broke, don't fix it, and the SUPERSTAR 2's didn't even need any repair, nor did the 1's! Please bring back the ORIGINAL 1's, the 2's, and the 2G's. Keep your Originals original!
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.
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 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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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 :)
I switched to Sambas because I was looking for shoe that looked sleeker than the Vans that I have been wearing for years. These shoes did not disappoint. From the moment I put them on, I felt transformed by how sharp these shoes look; they look amazing with ANY outfit (jeans, business casual, sports, etc.). They fit true to size in all respects and when they're all laced up, fit my feet like a glove. These are truly the best shoes that I have ever bought. I even like them so much, I'm not using them for tennis as I originally intended, and instead bought a completed different shoe instead so that these stay looking nice. In my opinion, don't hesitate, just buy.
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!
Hey Guyz (and Gals of course) I have always been an adidas fan (for many things but mostly quality and price), but only started wearing sambas like 2 years ago after a recommendation from a friend. The shoe is sooooo awesome. Handles quite well, gives an excellent touch for ball handling, and still offers great protection (not from cleats, but from those players who like to stomp you with their heels...accidentally of course!). Anyhow, back to the shoe...I love them so much, that I already have 2 pairs and buying the third. This time I am going for the white with red adidas stripes (always been a white shoe fan). oh...and they live for ever.
I've loved these shoes for many many years! I remember the first time I wore the adidas Superstar was like just before high school! adidas Superstar definitely are the MUST BUY ITEM, They're the classic pair of shoes and always on-trend, It's the best shoes ever, either with shorts, skirts, dresses or jeans!!! They are the best!
