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.

Stylish shoe, but on larger feet, they appeared a little odd (I wear size 12). They were also at least half a size smaller than marked. With socks on, they were rather tight.

My husband has worn the black Adidas Samba Classic for YEARS and loves them. He wanted a white casual sneaker, so we though Sambas in white would be perfect and they are, but it took a while to get it right. First I ordered him the Adidas Samba Originals, not really know there were different kinds of Sambas. I ordered a 13 the same size of his black ones in the closet and he couldn't even get them on, they were so tight! So I returned them and did a little searching and realzied that he has the classics so I ordered them in a 13, this time he could get them on and he wanted to keep them saying they'd stretch out, but after wearing them about 15 mins in the house he changed his mind. I wish they came in a wide option (not that my husband has wide feet at all...) so I ordered them again in a 13.5 and now they fit and he's happy!

I buy these shoes all the time for my son. These are the only athletic shoes he will wear and has worn for the last 6 or 7 years. Nice classic style. Zappos is a great company to do business with!
