Adidas’ iconic SAMBA is one of the most popular and recognisable shoes on earth, with more than 35 million pairs sold worldwide. For the first time, golfers can stroll the fairways of the golf course in this legendary footwear with the introduction of the SAMBA GOLF shoe.
Introduced in 1950, the original SAMBA was designed to enable soccer players to train on firm, icy ground and quickly evolved to become a dominant indoor soccer shoe. Over time, SAMBA’s combination of classic styling and comfortable fit sparked a transcendence into a modern-day essential worn everywhere from athletic fields to the city streets, and by virtually everyone regardless of age and gender. People all over the world have made SAMBA a familiar part of global culture.
“SAMBA has been widely loved around the world for decades,” said Bill Price, Vice President of adidas Golf Footwear. “It’s time to bring its timeless styling to the golf course.”
SAMBA GOLF upholds the shoe’s classic silhouette and 3-Stripes design, and features a durable, suede toe-guard and the distinctive tan gumsole equipped with six cleats and THINTECH low-profile technology for improved traction, stability and support. The textile, synthetic-leather upper is water-resistant and provides lightweight, quality performance.
The footwear will be available at Function18.com on 1st February 2012.
