The iconic Samba silhouette will receive a subtle remix with the adidas Skateboarding Samba ADV. Introduced in the ’50s as a soccer boot intended to combat wintery turf, the celebrated design of the Samba has mostly stayed true to the original, keeping the classic T-toe and tan gum sole features since the ’70s through all of its evolutions. The latest iteration of the Samba lineage, the Samba ADV, combines the Three Stripes’s rich soccer heritage with skateboarding design and functionality, fortifying the silhouette’s ability to transcend style, athletics and culture. Designed with skateboarding needs in mind, the Samba ADV features a suede and leather upper for durability, internal mesh bootie for responsive fit, molded heel clip and sockliner for support, directional tread for precision grip and the classic gum cupsole. In honor of the release, adidas SB Pro team riders Rodrigo TX, Benny Fairfax and Tyshawn Jones rip up the streets of Sao Paulo, London and New York City in the celebrated shoe. Retailing for $75 USD, the Samba ADV will be available on January 1 at specialty adidas retailers in the U.S. and the adidas SB website.
