I’ve been tempted by Adidas Sambas for a while but worried if I buy them now, they’ll be ‘done’ in a couple of months. Are there any new equivalents for 2024 or are Sambas here to stay?
i’d say that the shape and the flatter shoe look is going no where, BUT i’d avoid the classic b&w sambas as they’re everywhere - and therefore more likely to be “out” faster (if that matters to you!).
Instead maybe go for one of the gazelles in a colour? its such a nice way to add something a little different to an outfit. But if you’re style doesnt call for a colourful shoe like that, the Onitsuka tiger mexico 66’s are another style that are v cool. I’ve got my eyes on the white and navy colourway. I’d also look at Puma’s Palermos in b&w.
adding to this though - if you do like the sambas, get them and resell them if you dont find yourself wearing them often. i always say this to anyone worried about trainers going in and out of style - if you find you don’t wear a style anymore, pop them on depop or stockx and get another preloved pair from one of those same resellers that you do like later down the line x
Agree with Sapna. I bought the Mexico 66s as I really wanted an everyday trainer but wanted something a bit different as Sambas were everywhere! Saying that the Sambas keep getting released in new colour ways so looks like they are here to stay for a while! x
