These shoes take just a little bit of breaking in. And they squeak a lot when you first get them. It was almost a deal breaker, but I rubbed a good amount of hand lotion on the leather where the tongue rubs against the rest of the shoe and they've been quiet ever since.

These shoes look great, and are true to size, but they definitely run narrow. There is little to no cushioning in the soles, and even after wearing them for a few weeks, they squeak terribly. If all you are going to do is wear them a short time with little walking, they are decent. Do not buy them as everyday shoes, or ones you will spend a lot of time on your feet with.

Well, I read the reviews before ordering my Sambas. The majority of them said to order up (1/2 size) and so I did. TOO BIG. I exchanged the 7-1/2 for a 7 (my typical size in every type of shoe). Well, I wouldn't say WAY too small, but I wouldn't be comfortable if I wore an 'athletic' ped. My toe was already hitting the end of the shoe. SO, I remembered that my OLD Sambas were hand-me-downs from my SON!! HA!! So I ordered a 5-1/2 in boys and I'm HOPING they fit. The beauty if Zappos--if they don't, I exchange for possibly a 5 or I RETURN them. How's THAT for a cliff-hanger? :)

I purchased these for my son - it was my first purchase with Zappos. Service was awesome and shoes arrived less than 24 hours later. Wow! Will definitely use this site again and my son loves the shoes.

Nice shoe, my other pair is wearing very well, that's why I got another pair! The old ones have to 4-5 yrs old..ammens medicated powder keeps 'em from getting "rank" as sneakers can! When I received the shoes they felt smaller than marked! Zappos graciously/quickly shipped another pair which fit's ok!

I'd also recommend: puma.

I've long been a fan of Adidas Originals, and sought something lower-profile than their shell-toe Superstar. Samba fit the bill. After a few days, they felt like a slipper. I second the comments about adding lotion or soap to the tongue to prevent the inevitable squeaking when you take them out of the box and put them on for the first time. Also, I've been buying Adidas for years and always taken an 11.5 in everything I've worn. These run snug and I returned them for a 12.

I've been wearing Sambas for a decade and love them for their simple styling, comfort, and durability. This is my first pair with the shortened tongue, and, at first, I was worried it would cause discomfort poking into my ankle, I haven't noticed any at all. I ended up with a half-size smaller than what I used to order, but I chalk it up to sizings changing over the last ten years and not my feet shrinking.
