To start 2017, adidas Skateboarding is introducing a new skate silhouette, the Samba ADV. The sneaker takes its design foundation from the classic adidas Samba that traces back to the 1950s as a football shoe.
Here is how adidas Skateboarding describes the sneaker…
Designed to meet the skateboarder’s needs of comfort, board control and grip, the Samba ADV features a suede and leather upper for durability, internal mesh bootie for responsive fit, molded heel clip for support, directional tread for precision grip, molded sockliner and the classic cupsole.
adidas is introducing the sneaker in the field on a skate journey to New York City with team members Rodrigo TX, Benny Fairfax, and Tyshawn Jones.
The sneaker will launch on the 1st of January through adidas Skateboarding and adidas dealers (in the US for $75). For its debut, the sneaker will launch in classic Samba form, balancing a black and white upper on a gum sole.
