Adidas Kamanda: A bold street style sneaker

Displaying an out-of-the-ordinary style, the Adidas Kamanda is another noteworthy pair in Adidas' retro sneaker arsenal. This kick was stirred from an unreleased soccer footwear prototype in 1989 that featured the outsole tread of the famous Adidas Samba. It highlights its chunky and sculpted gum rubber sole with interlocking grooves, creating a bold statement in modern fashion. Meanwhile, its upper has a simple and straightforward design, inspired by the classic soccer footwear.

What makes Adidas Kamanda different from the Adidas Kamanda 01?

They may look almost like a clone of each other, but scrutinizing closer, the Adidas Kamanda and Adidas Kamanda 01 are entirely different iterations. The kind of material utilized on the upper of these sneakers set them off from each other. The Kamanda 01 uses premium suede or nubuck on its upper, whereas the Kamanda uses nylon, leather, or polyester fabric, depending on the colorway.
