A lot of popular sneakers are inherently sporty and loved by their fans for that sportiness. But there are also some select beloved sneakers that are not just sport-adjacent, but actually sneakers for sports. The adidas Samba is one such example. Sambas are so popular among the fashion-forward that it might slip your mind that these are, at their foundation, soccer sneakers. But don’t be fooled, they do much more than dribble.

Some other uber-popular adidas sneakers are maybe more minimal or more low-key, making it a little easier to transition them to street style. Take Stan Smiths, for example. These were made as tennis shoes, but they have such a minimal construction and detailing that they don’t necessarily scream “Tennis.” The Samba is not so quiet. It is still a minimal shoe, but its main details — a rubber gum sole and a contrasting three stripes — make them feel as sporty as they truly are. Still, they have become a favorite street style shoe choice for celebrities across the style spectrum.

The sneaker is unisex and rightfully styled across genders. A$AP Rocky and Frank Ocean wear them often, styled with jeans or a classic adidas track pant. derek rose adidas sneaker shoes clearance outlet and even dropped his own monochrome Sambas with adidas.

Bella Hadid and Emily Ratajkowski have got to be two of the biggest fans, and, true to form, they make reliably very good (and replicable) outfits out of them.

Hadid goes hard on juxtaposing her sporty sneakers with more formal pieces, like when she wore Sambas and athletic socks with black tights and a skirt.

The adidas Samba has been around since the 1950s, beginning as a soccer shoe for icy conditions. It then shifted to indoor soccer, and then made its way off the field and into the world. There are a few versions of the shoe out now, but the classic version is a black upper with contrasting white three stripes on the side and a rubber gum sole. As a sports shoe, that rubber sole allowed for more traction on slippery soccer surfaces and, later, in skateparks. adidas b75663 sneakers girls basketball in the ’90s along with tracksuits and a general trend toward cool, casual, athleticwear.

Sambas are still great for that street style approach. One, because of all that history. Two, because they are comfortable. Three, because they are easy to wear. The low-profile sneaker is sporty for sure but it still tends to be in neutral colorways and with simple changes that have evolved over time. They generally sell for around $75, but some of the different versions of the shoe will be priced differently, like the new vegan styles, which go for $100. The low construction and neutral colorways make them versatile to style with jeans and dresses or wear with more athletic clothes like track pants, shorts, and leggings.
