The Samba ADV pays respects to Adidas' deep soccer heritage with a classic T-Toe reminiscent of the original style that debuted more than 50 years ago. A molded sockliner ensures a glove-like fit by comfortably wrapping your foot to improve response. An internal heel clip locks down the back of your foot to prevent slip. The lightweight cupsole has a directional herringbone tread pattern for lasting grip and board control. Soccer may be in the Samba's blood, but these shoes are all skate from heel to toe.
Cupsole - Durable and shock-absorbing to provide the best impact protection against hard landings. Cupsoles generally last longer than a vulcanized sole but don't provide as much flexibility and board feel right out of the box.
Molded PU Sockliner - Soft polyurethane insole for added comfort and protection.
Herringbone Tread - Creates amazing grip and board control.
Lightweight Rubber Cupsole - Lightweight rubber cupsole provides terrific board feel and protection for when you're skating those big stairsets. Cupsole construction and deep tread pattern gives the shoe long-life durability.
Molded TPU Heel Clip - For heel lockdown and increased support.
I always add a half size when buying adidas.
