adidas‘s timeless Samba and influential Predator line are two benchmarks in the ever-evolving world of performance football footwear, and now they’ve been brought together on a new Samba OG. Swapping out its standard Three Stripe graphic for Predator-style fangs, these sporty Sambas simultaneously salute two eras of adidas Soccer.

First introduced in the ’50s, the Samba was designed to give footballers standout support on icy turf. In the years since, it’s become a casual favorite thanks to its soft leather upper, T-shaped suede toe overlay and sleek rubber midsole, all of which are present here and dressed in black. However, the standard Three Stripe graphics on the lateral and medial sides have been injected with a dose of venomous flair thanks to the fang-shaped overlays from the OG 1994 Predator boot. These white stripes are contrasted by a white tongue badge and a Samba text hit on the medial midfoot.

Branding isn’t the only acknowledgement of the Predator, however. Heels take on a recognizable ridged graphic, and red insoles spell out “Samba” in an original Predator font to finish the look with a daring dash of disguised detailing.

The adidas Samba Predator “Black/White” is available now on the adidas webstore, and retails for a flat $100 USD.

Moving from football boots to sneakerboots, Salehe Bembury recently teased a brand-new collaboration with ANTA.
