Rated 4 out of 5Â by Rosie SO COMFY!
i LOVE these shoes, have had 2 pairs of them in the past 3 years and i wear them all the time. I have really bad arches and theyre a little too flat for me, but i throw in arch supports and everyone thinks theyre awesome, and theyre so much fun to play soccer in.
only 2 cons are my socks always slip under my feet and if you wear them a lot, the backs wear out quickly and the plastic part that holds the shape rubs the back of your foot if you dont replace them quick enough.
but i can wear these for a good year without having to replace them and i wear them all the time!

Does it get any more classic than Sambas? I love these shoes, and in all seriousness I wear them every day. They are the only shoe I have ever considered buying a second pair of. They last literally forever. A friend of mine bought his 6 years ago and, although they are a little dirty, they are in one piece. I LOVE THESE SHOES.

I bought my Sambas about a year ago on clearance as a plan-b. I hated them at first. They felt too long, stiff, and difficult to maneuver in. I bought them to replace my aging vans as my recreational trainer, and things weren't looking good.
But once I broke them in, they become an extremely natural and comfortable fit. I really began to wear them all the time! They might fit well with every other outfit I wear, but it wasn't until I wore them out while I ran through the icy streets and parks of Chicago in the early fall did I seriously begin to love my Sambas. When they finally came into their element, what they were originally designed for. Frozen fields.
My college Ultimate Frisbee team practices year round, and that does mean we play in the winter, so my Classic Sambas initially replaced my current running shoes simply because they weren't mesh. It soon became evident however, that they outperformed my old running shoe in every way on the field. The gum outsole grip provided me with a confident grip, while still allowing me to maintain an even balance between sliding & stopping, a must for the skilled ultimate player. The "soccer fit" of the shoe provides comfort during long matches, and the leather protects my feet from the elements or other players sharp cleats, while still allowing me with enough flexibility for tricky landings if my feet meet the ground at odd angles.
But seriously, my favorite thing about the Adidas Samba, is when you put it all together, no other shoe I've ever worn can out perform it in a dead sprint on cold grass. I'm not kidding. These shoes might be a bit heavy, but when I'm sprinting all out across the field to catch a long pass, dashing over mud and ice, dodging and weaving around defenders, and finally leaping off the Earth to make that all important catch in the end zone, no other shoe provides me with the fit, grip, and most importantly, the speed I need to make moves like that.
Where other shoes might catch, slip, drag, or give to a frosty pitch, my Sambas never quit. The Adidas Samba is the best shoe for playing Ultimate on frozen fields. Period.

These shoes are awesome, for both soccer-related and casual wear. They are very comfortable, both on and off the field. And they go with almost anything when out on the town. They look great with jeans and a shirt. Plus, for me, these are way more comfortable than some of those "performance" shoes, and these come with a somewhat smaller price tag. Plus, considering that I wear these shoes everywhere, they last longer than other shoes I have worn.

Rated 2 out of 5Â by Mucks Adidas misses the mark in Vietnam
I'm a big fan of the classic Sambas. I'm not a soccer player, I'm a rocker. I recently tried to replace my worn out Sambas I got some years back but the replacements I got are not like my old ones. My currant sambas are rad. They are made in Indonesia and are a great construction. Plus they are wide. They new Sambas I recently purchased are very narrow and pointy, as if my big toe is in the middle of my foot. I have shopped Arron's and all I can find are the narrowly made Vietnam Sambas. Too bad Adidas. Why so narrow and skinny?

As a runner and a soccer player I am extremely picky about my shoes. These shoes are both comfortable and stylish. I wear them as casual shoes and occasionally for indoor soccer. I know so many people who own Sambas and keep buying them, I am quickly becoming one of those people and I am by no means loyal to the Adidas brand. I buy shoes that look good, fit well, and are comfortable; end of story. These shoes are awesome. I hope these shoes will last more than a year like most shoes I buy.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by soccerisawesome My sambas were great for this year's soccer. We used them everyday cause we practice inside, and my feet were very comfortable.

Very comfortable and great looking shoes. Bought them for my 15 year old daughter and she likes them a lot. They even have a moderate arch support.
