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.
