Adidas Samba OG MS Style

Two color options were released for the Adidas Samba OG MS shoes: Core Black/Cloud White/Silver Metallic and Easy Yellow/Core Black/Cloud White. The neutral palette gives the sneaker a retro flair, coupled with the Samba’s iconic silhouette. As a result, these kicks have a distinctly sleek appeal, which would go well with plenty of casual get-ups.

For a street-ready, everyday style, the sneaker can be worn with a variety of pants, jeans, and shorts. T-shirts, button-downs, sweatshirts, and jackets will complete the urban aesthetic. The model’s sports-inspired design will also go well with track pants, joggers, and shorts along with tank tops, hoodies, and other athleisure pieces.

Notable Features

With its legendary design, the Adidas Samba OG MS can elevate any look with a classic touch. It has a full grain leather upper that delivers a luxurious look and feel. The laces have a stripe design that adds another vintage detail. Meanwhile, the Samba’s original silhouette is retained, down to the iconic T-toe.

The shoe has a minimalistic approach, with the branding details limited to the raised Three Stripes on the sides and the Samba label on the tongue. Contrasting tongue and heel accents add an interesting touch to the sneaker.

Adidas Samba OG MS History

As one of the most popular sneakers from the Three Stripes brand, the Adidas Samba never goes out of style. It continues to be sought by sneakerheads and fashion lovers, valued for its sports-inspired look and sleek flair. As such, many iterations have been released to continue the legacy of the original.

The Samba was first introduced in 1950, created to provide soccer players with reliable footwear on icy surfaces. It has since become a favorite in the lifestyle category. One of the model’s modern versions is the Adidas Samba OG MS from Adidas Originals, which celebrates the cycling culture. It updated the upper with a full grain leather material for an extra sturdy feel.

These kicks come with a water-repellent suede toe and a gusseted tongue, which can help protect both cyclists and casual wearers against rain. Among the cycling-inspired accents are the reflective laces and a graphic resembling a city map on the sock liner. Such details give the classic Samba design a unique twist, perfect for those looking for something timeless yet different.
