UPDATE: The sumptuous Samba has hit the streets in all its German-made magnificence. Lovers of the old-school will need to move quickly on these ones. They may be a little on the expensive side, but we have no doubt that the connoisseurs will be scooping them up with haste. Hit up your local or click over to Afew to seal the deal.
It’s hard to improve on a classic like the adidas Samba – so rather than trying to fix what ain’t broke, the Stripes have gone ahead and upped the quality. The new Made in Germany Samba comes in a classic colourway, which has been built by experienced craftsmen from the finest materials available. The shoe’s white nubuck is the base for a soft suede T-toe, while the premium black leather stands tall with its XL Trefoil branding. Period correct dark gum rubber has been placed at the base, capping off a classic that would make Adi proud.
The adidas Samba Made in Germany will be available from May 5 from select sneaker boutiques.
