Adidas Samba Canvas Pack

Almost a year ago we got overly excited about Adidas putting out some canvas Sambas in a few classic colors.  We jumped the gun and it turned out that the three stripes were in fact leather.  Now, it’s been brought to my attention (thank you very much sir Dustin) that Adidas has recently released a Sambas Canvas Pack, but these have synthetic stripes and canvas heel.  And yes, the lining is not leather.  This is a very welcome development – another classic we can add in the vault!

Unfortunately, the pack doesn’t include the classic black upper with white stripes and brown sole.  Hopefully they will expand the color selection beyond this pack, but for now we have four colors: 1) aluminum/super blue/white, 2) black on black on black on black on black, 3) black/”high energy”/white, 4) slate/light maroon/white.

  1. This is great! I’ve been after some great vegan Adidas in this style for ages – wondering whether there are any UK shops that are doing these?

  2. i like the black ones the most. all canvas with matching sole beige or grey would be dope too. Yauch R.I.P.

  3. I just got mine. The stripes aren’t synthetic- they’re canvas like the rest of the shoe.

  4. THANK YOU so much for posting this! I’ve been looking for vegan sambas for nearly 10 years. The search finally comes to an end…

  5. Heeft iemand een site waar ik die lichtblauwe samba’s met rode strepen kan kopen? in maat 44 2/3?
    Iemand link plz..

  6. Hi Ed, thanks for the comment. And sorry for replying so late. If you’re still looking for these you might be out of luck right now. They are surprisingly not in steady stock, which is why it’s nice to update when a new pack of colors is released. However, there is still an issue with Adidas shoes in general, we aren’t able to verify whether they are 100% vegan or not, their customer service is lacking and we get conflicting information from them and readers as well. I know this isn’t helpful but you might want to look elsewhere for animal friendly sneakers.

    Thank you so much.

  8. A genuine frustration when a company goes to the trouble of using synthetic/natural materials to make a shoe and then goes coy about what the glue is actually made of.
