As with many Adidas classics of its time, these Adidas Samba OG Relay shoes administer a slightly large facade which can be addressed by going half a size down for those with normal feet. People with broader foot conformities can purchase their usual size and acquire a true to size fit.
The women’s Adidas Samba OG Relay is available at a size range of 5 to 11 which are all constructed in a B medium width. Half sizes are also covered by this sneaker.
To complete the ever-enduring Adidas Samba look, the German brand had come up with their own type of leggings called Coeeze which, though not intentionally, was almost like these women-specific Samba’s missing half brother. Other clothing options also include baggy joggers or slim-fitting jeans to perfectly accentuate the timeless design.
What makes this iteration of the football-inspired Adidas Samba more style sassy for the ladies are the touches of pink circumnavigating its perimeter starting from the iconic toe patch all around to the heel. The Three Stripes exude a similar tone with that of the sneaker’s dominant upper, while a pink heel tab adds a little swoosh of feminine creativity at the back.
Instead of rooting for a standard suede makeover, the Adidas Original Samba OG Relay was dressed up in plush and comfortable leather uppers sitting atop a timeless gum rubber outsole.

Its football-inspired legacy had been gradually molded to conform with society’s undying need for an alternative lifestyle look which also doubles as a staple casual option for everyday chores.
