    Samba “Original” vs. “Classic”– KNOW THE DIFFERENCE, April 3, 2012

    I have experienced both these pairs. Breakdown:

    CLASSIC: adidas Men’s Samba Classic Soccer Shoe
    - Larger tongue
    - easier to slip on/off
    - medium/enhanced arch support. If you wear air-soled running shoes, you probably won’t even notice. Personally, I’m NOT A FAN.
    - The arch support has changed in the last 3 years (the last time I bought this pair). Be warned!

    ORIGINALS:adidas Originals Men’s Samba Reflective Sneaker
    - Smaller tongue
    - Old-school arch support (meaning flatter/next to none). I have worn nothing but Chucks and older Sambas happily for many years, and identify with the barefoot-running crowd, so for me, flatter is better.
    - Harder to slip on/off, but once it’s on, it fits like a glove!
    - Yes, they squeak like everyone says. Doesn’t bother me, but then again I’m not a movie usher, burglar or otherwise occupied in the skulking arts.

    Some people will prefer one over the other. For me, the clear winner is ORIGINALS.

    Very comfortable, very cool, September 22, 2009

    What is there to say about these shoes besides the fact that they’re very comfortable, feel great (redundancy), and look good? Not much, I guess. What else do you say about shoes? Did I mention that these shoes feel great on the feet, as they would feel anywhere else? Seriously, buy a pair if you’re into that whole wearing-shoes thing. $40 or so for a great pair of shoes, very good deal. I mean, you could do a lot worse; you could be spending any money at all on a pair of Crocs. (Whatever America did to deserve those, we sincerely apologize.) Anyway, wearing them with a pair of shorts is fine, but if you’re vain when it comes to your legs or you’re not quite ready to let your friends know that you too shave the fuzz from your legs, wear these Originals with a pair of trousers, khaki or gray, whatever you’re feeling. The shoes are casually athletic, like white guys who say, “Yeah, I play soccer” but in fact have never played soccer for a recreational team and have little-to-none-at-all knowledge about the sport, but the idea sounds good. What’s better than running around on green grass, sometimes getting to kick a ball, in short shorts and a jersey, giving yourself and others the impression that you’re athletic? You’re fooling everyone, don’t worry. And after you wipe your forehead and throw your short bangs back, covered in sweat, after you trot over to the sideline, breathing hard, grab a towel, wipe yourself off, sit down in the grass and not the bleachers (on purpose, of course; athletes don’t sit in seating apparatuses), take off those hopefully-filthy cleats and slip on these cool-as-hell vintage shoes. I promise they will reinforce your image as an athlete. Did I mention they feel like a foot-rub given by the most beautiful girl in the world? Please, wear these shoes with a sense of honor: be yourself, and for God’s sakes, don’t pop your collar.

    The white/royal blue sambas are really good looking and very comfortable. I dont play soccer and I wear these shoes because of the comfort and the style they have. Very good shoe choice! I would reccomend these for anyone!
