“adidas Skateboarding releases the Samba ADV – a remixed version of the classic Samba soccer shoe – one of the most iconic silhouettes from adidas still in production after its debut over 65 years ago. Introduced in the 1950s as a soccer boot to combat wintery turf, the evolutionary design of the Samba has mostly remained intact keeping to its classic T-toe and tan gum sole features since the 1970s. Transcending style, athletics and culture – the Samba ADV infuses the brand’s rich soccer heritage with skateboarding design and functionality.
Designed to meet the skateboarder’s needs of comfort, board control and grip, the Samba ADV features a suede and leather upper for durability, internal mesh bootie for responsive fit, molded heel clip for support, directional tread for precision grip, molded sockliner and the classic cupsole.”
