The Samba Classic is my favorite trainer, both for indoor soccer and for just plain hanging out. Incredibly comfortable shoe and it fit precisely as expected. Plus, I recently discovered that the woman of my dreams digs my Sambas as well. She also wears black Adidas trainers! True love... Even if you don't have such a life-changing experience, you do need to own these! :-)

I have experienced both these pairs. The classic Adidas Men's Samba Classic Soccer Shoe have a larger tongue, are easier to slip on/off, and provide medium/enhanced arch support. If you wear air-soled running shoes, you probably will not even notice. Personally, I am Not a fan. The arch support has changed in the last three years (the last time I bought this style). Be warned! The original Adidas Men's Samba Reflective Sneaker have a smaller tongue, less arch support (meaning flatter/next to none). I have worn nothing but Chucks and older Sambas happily for many years, and identify with the barefoot-running crowd, so for me, flatter is better. They are harder to slip on/off, but once they are on, they fit like a glove! Yes, they squeak like everyone says. That does not bother me, but then again I am not a movie usher, burglar or otherwise occupied in the skulking arts. Some people will prefer one over the other. For me, the clear winner is the originals.

My son uses these for indoor soccer (futsal). This is his second pair. He keeps them for play during the season and uses them for general wear thereafter. He didn't wear out the first pair; he just out grew them. They are a terrific bargain considering their price, construction, and utility.

Girl, here! I wear a women's 8 and the men's 7 fit perfectly! I use these for indoor soccer and they are lighter than I remember and fit great. They do take a game or two to break in but have great support and a wonderful feel.

My 13 year old son is wearing these shoes for indoor soccer. He loves the retro style and will sometimes wear them to school. They are durable and should last well beyond the soccer season. His one complaint is that the long tongue rubs against his shin. Perhaps this will improve with more break-in. Overall, a shoe with great value, appearance, and functionality.

This is a very comfortable shoe.These take maybe two or three days to break in, but after that they are comfortable. Over the years I have had many pairs of Sambas and I have never had a complaint. The style of the Samba Classic has a long tongue

Love this shoe! Classic look and comfortable, goes with any outfit. Definitely runs a half size small, so I recommend ordering a half size larger than you usually do (I normally wear a 7 in men's so I ordered a 7.5 and it fits perfect). Has very high arch support, which may not be for everyone. I love them!
