Adidas Originals Samba OG | The Original Story

by Rex Yam 21 Jun 2024 0 Comments
The first sneaker launched among Adidas Originals sneakers wasn't the well-known Superstar or the evergreen Stan Smith. It was actually the Samba, which came out in 1950. It's been over 70 years since its release and it's still the most popular pair in Adidas history. These shoes have really stood the test of time.

Adidas Originals Samba was designed by the founder, Adi Dassler. The original version of Samba was a pair of mid-high boots made of kangaroo leather. In 1962, the Samba changed into a low-top sneaker.

Have you ever wondered why it's called Samba? Let's travel back to the 1950 World Cup in Brazil. Adidas named it after the Brazilian native dance, Samba, to create a connection between Brazil and the shoe, and to spread the word about Adidas Samba.

 Bob Marley, the Reggae artist, and Freddie Mercury, the lead vocalist of the British rock band Queen, they would wear Adidas Samba on stage, and made it got popular in the fashion field. The other reason was the British football team's success, which attracted passionate fans to buy a lot of Adidas gear, including the Samba.

These days, the Adidas Original Samba is back and making a big statement in the sneaker market. It could take over and lead the shoe game.
