If I had to crown one sneaker style that key purchase in 2022, it would be the Adidas Samba – without a doubt. The classic soccer sneaker has landed in the closets of celebrities including Kendall Jenner, Zoë Kravitz and Kaia Gerber, as well as the wardrobes of fashion’s coolest insiders. Sambas capitalize on the retro sneaker trend that has been on the rise over the last several years, which we can also trace to the return of other popular styles including New Balance 550sConverse Chuck Taylors and Nike Dunks.
However, the Adidas Samba sneakers have become so popular this year that they are almost sold out everywhere on the web. Determined to find a pair for a friend, I hunted through retailers across the internet. While many retailers only carry larger sizes or limited colors, I was able to find them on StockX, a site where you can buy and sell the hottest sneakers of the moment with prices varying by style, size and current demand. Ahead, see how celebrities and fashionistas style Adidas Samba outfits and shop each look.
