Originally made for frozen pitches, the men’s Samba shoes dig into the archives for inspiration. They feature a sleek suede upper with contrasting suede overlays, contrasting 3-Stripes and a pivot-point rubber outsole for grip.
There's a reason this legendary indoor shoe still sells like mad. Perfection never goes out of style. Its soft leather upper and low-profile gum rubber outsole give the elite player ultimate control.See all Product description

I bought a pair at an Adidas outlet several years back. Tried them on, and although the arch-support felt awfully "high" and stiff to me...I didn't think much of it. I figured I'd get used to them in time. Wore them the whole next day, and when I got home...I literally felt like my instep was bruised. I seriously threw the shoes in the trash that night because I was so irritated with them.
Flash-forward to about 2 weeks ago. I thought about getting another pair of Sambas...but even at a sub-$40 price-point...I couldn't really justify buying another pair of shoes just to throw them in the trash again....so I did a little research. I figured I couldn't possibly be the only person to think that these shoes were unfathomably uncomfortable. Almost torturously so. So I googled something like "uncomfortable Samba insoles" or something of the sort...and stumbled upon a true godsend. Some ingenious and benevolent soul uploaded a YouTube video that addressed my exact concern. Come to find out...the Samba insoles are VERY easy to remove. When you do so and flip them over...there is a white rubber piece that is attached with an easily removable adhesive that you can peel the entire arch-support off with literally no effort. Slip the insoles back in, and BOOM....comfortable Sambas. I will admit that even with the ridiculous arch-support removed, there is still a little more arch than I would prefer due to the shape of the shoe in general (I prefer my insoles virtually flat)...but it's the difference between having a pair of shoes I can wear every day...and having a pair of shoes that would go immediately in the trash. If my above description of how to perform minor surgery on your Sambas is confusing, Google "How to remove samba insole" video....it'll be the first thing that comes up in YouTube. It seriously couldn't have been a quicker or easier fix. Without this "hack"...these shoes would be a negative 15 in terms of any kind of comfort unless you like your shoes with a ridiculous amount of stiff arch-support. Hopefully this review will help someone else that had the same issue as me, because for the price I bought them for (again...I got them for a little under $40) I doubt you'll find a better value on a name-brand shoe...as long as you can comfortably wear them.
I've been wearing the same pair almost daily for over two years now and am just now considering replacing them. I have not been easy on them. I've taken them on many 3-5 mile runs, powerlifted, and completed many, many manual labor tasks in them. And, of course, all the usual walking around. 100/100 for durability. One thing to note, these were almost a non-starter for me when I first got them, I was getting a ridiculous pain in my inner arch whenever I wore them. I found in the Amazon reviews people saying to tear out the arch support from the sole. I did so and they were a perfect fit.
After some debate I bought the shoes and like many people say, the arch support may take some getting used to (although if you really can't stand it, there are tutorials online on how to remove it). The longer tongue also wasn't an issue and easily tucks in if its not your thing. You may even be able to cut it to size.
My only complaint is that the shoes were slightly larger than I expected. I believe I have an average foot and wear a size 10 in most other shoes. However, the Samba Classics were just a bit large on me. Hardly noticeable but its something to consider.
looks so cool if you bend it forward towrds the front. Funny that people always comment on these sneaker and they are a classic style from Adidas.
