For LAFC, adidas dresses the iconic Samba shoes in the same soft tones as the team’s home kit. Off-white leather uppers are accentuated by a nubuck mudguard, and soft linen materials cover the side stripes and heel tabs. LAFC team badges are displayed on the tongue tag and insole heel, and subtle gold accents can be found on the eyestay overlay and lateral Los Angeles text. A classic gum sole unit below completes the special-edition pairs.
For the other Los Angeles-based football club, LA Galaxy, adidas dresses its Gazelle silhouette in navy suede White leathers are used on the lateral stripes and “LA” emblazoned heel tab, and gold “GALAXY” text is found along the side. An adidas logo rests on the padded tongue, and a white rubber sole unit rounds out the offering.
The adidas LAFC Sambas and LA Galaxy Gazelles are priced at $90 and $100 USD respectively and are set to release on the adidas website on November 13 at 8 a.m. GMT (3 a.m. EDT).
