Adidas Samba RM
With more than 7 decades since the very first Samba was introduced in the market as a venerable and stylish indoor soccer shoe, the new Adidas Samba RM continues on its tradition of generating new fans and expanding its existing fanbase with its low-profile style that has achieved the status of a timeless classic.
In keeping with the times, however, the Samba RM now sports a more modern design complete with streamlined proportions that should appeal to the new generation of sneaker lovers. The design does not completely detract from the original, though. This guarantees that fans of the original Samba can still find the new design fully relevant.
The core black leather upper is so supple that it hugs the foot like second skin. This is what footwear should be, allowing the wearer remarkable comfort regardless of the activity that he is engaged in. It doesn’t have the characteristic white tri-stripes of the Adidas logo. However, it does come with black-stitched stripes that are discernible only if you look close enough.
The quarter panel on the heel of the Samba RM features the “S4M3A” logo in gold print, providing a remarkable contrast to the sea of black of the upper. The styling is subtle, yet provides a statement that spans several generations of avid Samba wearers.
The rubber outsole doesn’t have any design element except for the unique grip patterns at the bottom. Just don’t expect the Samba RM to help you in your outdoor adventures in hilly or rocky terrains. The midsole features the Boost technology that helps give the feet a really comfortable cradle. This makes every step made with the Samba RM a comfy one.
The Adidas Samba spans several decades of footwear excellence. Its new RM edition simply continues on the tradition, but with substantial upgrades in comfort and performance.
