The adidas Samba features “Preloved Red” on mesh

As spring approaches, adidas is gearing up to unveil fresh, distinctive designs for the beloved everyday staple, the adidas Samba. Drawing inspiration from a lesser-known gem in their archives, the adidas Tischtennis, the latest Samba iterations are poised to make a statement.

The adidas Tischtennis, a vintage tennis shoe from the 1970s, made a comeback last month, sparking a wave of influence on the new Samba designs. One standout feature of the Tischtennis is its open mesh base, a characteristic that now finds its way into the construction of the Samba. However, the Samba takes it a step further by incorporating an additional layer beneath its mesh overlays, ensuring breathability and lightness with a twist. Despite this modification, the shared mesh pattern creates a cohesive link between the two models.

The highlighted colorway boasts tan mesh with accents in “Preloved Red” set atop a gum sole. Additionally, there’s a fully brown version following the same design theme. Both pairs are set to drop on April 1st at, priced at $120 each—a slight bump from the Samba’s usual $100 tag.
