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.
- Molded PU Sockliner
- Herringbone Tread
- Lightweight Rubber Cupsole
- Molded TPU Heel Clip
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.
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.
