Airy adidas Samba: Are No April Fool’s Joke

No, really.

As the days grow hotter, adidas steps in to provide some relief—well, at least for your feet. Introducing the brand’s latest addition: the breathable Samba sneakers.

Continuing its successful collaboration with Grace Wales Bonner‘s eponymous label, adidas aim to infuse a similar delicate touch into their mainline offerings.

Diverging from its leather counterparts, the newest adidas Samba sneaker ushers in a welcome breeze with its airy mesh upper.


With the Samba silhouette enjoying a stellar run, it’s no surprise that adidas is giving it a makeover. The use of loose woven textile across the uppers introduces a coastal-inspired aesthetic, offering a departure from its traditional design. However, the incorporation of suede overlays maintains a link to the Samba‘s rich heritage.

Furthermore, the gum sole serves as a nostalgic reminder of the shoe’s origins as a favored indoor sports footwear, long before it became a staple in the fashion world.


Perfectly timed for summer, these lightweight Sambas launch on April Fools’ Day, but rest assured, this release is no prank. Fans can grab their meshy pairs for $120 starting April 1st online.
