With more than 35 million pairs sold, the adidas Samba is one of the most popular casual sneakers on the market. Originally introduced in 1950, the Samba was created for the purpose of allowing soccer players to train on hard, icy ground and later evolved into an indoor soccer shoe. Since then, the classic style and comfortable fit of the model has helped it transform into a modern-day essential, worn by virtually everyone at any time and place. Now, for the first time, the classic Samba can be worn on the golf course with the introduction of the Samba Golf Shoe.
“Samba has been widely loved around the world for decades,” said Bill Price, Vice President of adidas Golf Footwear. “It’s time to bring its timeless styling to the golf course.”
The Samba Golf Shoe maintains the shoe’s classic silhouette and 3-Stripe design, while featuring a durable, suede toe-guard and distinctive tan gum sole equipped with six cleats and ThinTech low-profile technology for improved traction, stability and support. The textile, synthetic-leather upper is water-resistant and provides lightweight, durable performance.
Offered in medium width, the Samba Golf Shoe will initially drop in three colorways: Black/White /Gum, White/Black/Gum, and Satellite/White/Gum. Each will be available at retailers on March 1, 2012 at a price of $100 USD. Red/White/Gum will be released on May 1, 2012.
