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
Primary Upper Materials
Leather, except for:
  • collegiate navy/collegiate burgundy/footwear white: Suede
  • Molded PU Sockliner
  • Herringbone Tread
  • Lightweight Rubber Cupsole
  • Molded TPU Heel Clip

Cupsole - Cupsoles are durable, well-cushioned and provide the best impact protection against hard landings. The sole consists of a single rubber layer, reinforced with glue then stitched to the upper. Cupsoles generally last longer than vulcanized soles, 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.

Best boardfeel cupsole. Moderate durability.

Adidas Samba ADV Skate Shoes - collegiate navy/footwear white/gum5
+Points=incredible boardfeel for a cupsole.
Sylish Adidas profile.
Great heel lock with slightly longer / narrow toe box. Get true to size if you like snug, 1/2 size up for comfort.
Overall durable materials.
- points = this shoe will wear out at the Ollie spot but it is reinforced underneath so that doesn’t structurally change the shoe.
The sole wears out slightly faster than usual under the toe box.
If somebody could blend the durability of NB 598 and the looks/boardfeel of this shoe it would be the perfect skate shoe.

These reminded me of when all I skated in was Adidas Sambas because most "skate" shoes sucked. These are better than any of the old Sambas, a little more purpose built. I don't skate in them though, they just look to good to ruin.

Adidas Samba ADV Skate Shoes - core black/white/gum5
Super comfy like most adidas kicks and very durable. Usually with adidas I blow the stripes away after a week but this one's are holding strong after 2 weeks.

Asked by Grant on 1/5/2017
How long do you guys get out of the shoe before it's unskateable? It seems like the T isn't very durable
Answered by Danny M (Tactics Employee) on 1/5/2017
These shoes have had different results for us. For me personally they have lasted me over a month, but I don't do a whole lot of flip tricks. For my coworker they blew out in about 2 weeks because he is a lot more technical with his skating. We did a shoe review for these shoes on our youtube channel that was just posted a few days ago, check it out if you get a chance!

Asked by Max on 1/3/2017
How's the board feel on these? I mainly skate technical stuff like half pipes but I still want enough support to jump down things every once in a while.
Answered by Danny M (Tactics Employee) on 1/3/2017
These shoes are great for hoping down stuff, plenty of support. As for the board feel, they definitely take a little breaking in. Thinner and better board feel towards the toe but a thicker heel for sure. After skating these for about 2 full days the shoes were broken in and the board feel was way better.
