Why does everybody wear Adidas Sambas even if they do not nor have ever played soccer?


The three amigos of samba want to know. Seriously, they’re tired of Elite Sports on Mission always being out of size 12′s!

      Can’t be, these ones still have the shoestrings in ‘em.

      Nope…Run DMC wore Superstars. They have a smooth full-grain leather upper with the classic rubber shell toe. They also have textile lining and a herringbone pattern outsole for maximum traction.

    Um, we also wear baseball caps and and sweatshirts even if we don’t play baseball or sweat.

    i always wondered this, being that i grew up playing soccer and well into college. hmm, the thing with these shoes is that yes they are comfortable, but the tongue on them is ridiculously large and the purpose is to fold over your knotted laces when playing so it doesn’t disrupt the way you kick the ball. i used to wear the version with a shorter tongue to school when i was in 3rd grade, but that was mostly because i played kickball at recess.

    maybe this is just like when ppl who don’t skate wear vans?

    c’mon buddy this is very 3rd grade. they wear adidas for the same reason you do: to fit in. unless you’re playing on some crappy indoor/turf field, you’d want cleats anyways.

      I was under the impression that Sambas are outdated as sports gear now anyway – Using Sambas for indoor futbol would be like wearing All-Stars to play basketball. You could, but it isn’t doing your feet any favors.

    These are training (running) shoes, not soccer shoes….

    all u guys dont know anything, i can fucking play soccer barefoot, if you want to go that route and claim you cant play soccer in these, u can virtually play in anything. and the fact u are arguing about ADIDAS FUCKING INDOOR SOCCER SHOES NOT BEING SOCCER SHOES you are all dumbasses who obviously don’t know anything about soccer. obviously sambas arent made for grass fields. ALSO, the adidas shoes that aren’t for soccer are gazelles which were also extremely popular in the 90s. they were like the streetwear version of sambas.

      I had Gazelles in the fucking 70s, hold my beer while I ascend the podium for my award.

        How Soccer Originated

        A medieval picture of Chinese soccer, here a practice session in the garden.
        The clear ancestor of soccer was the Chinese game of t’su chu, played by the third century B.C. The ball was made of leather, at first stuffed, then in later times inflated so that it carried farther. The feet and body, but not the hands, were used to propel the ball. In an aristogratic version played in front of the emperor’s palace, the opposing teams tried to kick the ball through a tiny hole in a silken net. Even the emperor would occasionally take part. Women also played in a version of the game with eight players called Eight Immortals Crossing the Sea.

        This Chinese “sport of kings” was, oddly enough, the sport of peasants in England during the fourteenth century A.D.—mobs number hundreds played; broken limbs were common and deaths not unknown.

    and the fact i am probably going to get a million replies from you anonymous trolls about my grammar and run-on sentences from my comment just shows how hard u ppl on this thread ARE MISSING THE POINT.

    Sambas are excellent shoes for biking around the city. This can explain part of their popularity. They have very stiff soles that don’t flex on the pedals and are relatively flat on the bottom which helps your feet fit nicely on the pedals.

  11. AttF says:

    they’re comfy, cheap, last forever and go with everything.

    Is that a pile of dog shit they’re sitting in?

    DO NOT DISOBEY OR QUESTION!!! Sambas are what you shall wear. The cool police have spoken.

  14. SimonGarfunkle says:

    The soles are a harder rubber than most meant to combat high wear from indoor turf fields, and therefore outlast any other pair of tennis shoes for street wear. I have a pair I’ve been wearing to the gym daily since 2006 and there’s still some life in ‘em.
