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. This mix and match of details perfectly emblazon a part of Adidas past with a hint of modern fashion courtesy of the golden metal eyelet found at the top of the lacebed near the collar.

From its time to the 1950s, the Adidas Samba had already crept its way successfully to the lifestyle portion of the user market nowadays. Its soccer-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.

Its roots can be traced from the earliest Dassler shoe in history--the one which was worn by Jesse Owens who reaped numerous championships in track and field way back in the 1930s. At the time of this writing, there are several more colorways or special editions being produced for the Samba--a Jonah Hill approved model.

  • The pinkish small-haired overlays outlining the sneaker are made out of a super-soft pigskin suede material.
  • The cupsole, which administers its grip and traction, is composed of a gum rubber component.
  • Adding more comfort underfoot is the Ortholite sockliner.
  • The official name of its colorway is Cloud white-Soft Vision.
