When I say it isn’t out of the ordinary, I really mean it too. The Adidas Samba trainers have been around in some form or another since the 1950s when it was devised as an indoor football shoe.
It has rarely been off the shelves since, both as a football shoe (especially on the five-a-side circuit) but more commonly as an all-rounder. This is a classic ‘go to’ shoe for simply going out in and has been for decades. A tried and tested classic.
The style hasn’t changed massively over the years, but the finishes vary. There classic and perhaps most seen is black on white or white on black, but this take, with green details on a white leather upper, is a step up for me personally.
Outside of the colour, you also have serrated three-stripe branding, a suede T-toe overlay, a leather lining and a gum rubber outsole. £70 gets you a pair of these Adidas Samba trainers in most sizes.
