Sneaker girlies, this one’s for you.
By now, it’s no secret that each year the world gets unknowingly obsessed with a new type of shoe. Well sneaker heads, it's time to make way for the latest sensation, introducing; The Adidas Samba. This season, we eagerly awaited the new footwear phenomenon, and were greeted with an absolute icon of a shoe. The Samba is suddenly popular for a couple of reasons, let’s get into it.
To jog your memory, we’ve been through quite the repertoire of trendy shoes. Think back to 2011ish when you wouldn’t leave the house without a coloured (or even patterned) pair of vans. Or maybe you remember the more recent Adidas Superstars? Still nothing? How about the 2019 Fila Destroyers craze… I blame Instagram for that one. Between Adidas Gazelles and Nike AF1s, we’ve certainly stacked up quite the collection of sneaker trends. Some have been and gone, whereas others have made a more permanent impact - like Converse’s All Stars.
The Adidas Samba boasts a classic silhouette that combines both sport and style. Made with a leather upper and a low-profile gum sole, these shoes are not only comfy, but durable too. The distinct three Adidas stripes along the sides and the unmistakable trefoil flower/leaf logo on the tongue complete the Samba's sleek, lowkey look.
Would you believe this shoe has history? The Samba made its debut in the 1950’s as a football shoe - the suction design on the gumsole enabled players to train on icy ground. It has since grown into a favourite among fashionistas worldwide, quickly transcending its athletic roots to become the streetwear shoe we know it as today.
For those who can't help but wonder, what will the next shoe of the season be? It's difficult to predict with certainty, but there are whispers of a potential resurgence in retro runners, with brands revisiting their archives to reinvent and innovate iconic designs. Keep an eye out for the next wave of nostalgia, as the sneaker world never fails to surprise us.
In the meantime, lace up your Sambas and step out into the streetwear scene. With their timeless appeal and versatile nature, Adidas Sambas are sure to set you up for success. Embrace the sneaker craze that's taking the world by storm - if the shoe fits, right?!
Eager to get your hands on a pair of Sambas? Well they’re proving a little difficult to capture… But never fear, Chatty is here! We’ve been scouring the internet looking for online stores where they seem to stock up quickly. Whether you prefer the classic black and white colorways or tend to reach for something a little bolder and more vibrant, Adidas has created so many colour variations to choose from.
