adidas Samba Sock Primeknit Trainers
A regular on football pitches and beyond since its inception in 1950, the adidas Samba has been a staple of the Three Stripes catalogue for longer than most trainers can only dream of. Originally created to help players train on hard, icy surfaces, the shoe has come a long way since the 50s, and it’s just got arguably its biggest update ever with the Samba Sock Primeknit.
Yes, the original football footwear turned streetwear favourite has just been updated for the 21st century. As the name suggest, this icon has had its leather replaced with premium adidas Primeknit, offering an adaptive and supportive one-piece upper that boats a sock-like ankle collar.
With an incredible fit that adapts to your foot, the Samba Sock Primeknit keeps its classic low-profile look and feel, and utilises a classic black colour scheme with a white Three Stripes unit, as well as a contrasting version. The brown gum rubber outsole also still remains to keep things still firmly steeped in Samba heritage.
The adidas Samba Sock Primeknit trainer is available in Black or White over at the adidas Website where a pair will set you back £89.95.
Last month, adidas unveiled the DEERUPT. Taking cues from the NMD_R1 and Tennis Hu designs, the DEERUPT is a ‘disruptively simple’ silhouette with daring aesthetics and innovative features.
