These are hands down the best sneakers I've ever had. They're stylish, provide good arch support (a welcome change from the Onitsuka Tigers I owned before these!), and are long-lasting. This is the third pair of these sneakers that I've purchased, and each pair has lasted about a year when being worn every day. An added bonus: there's a bit of heft in the heel, so if you're short it gives you a little height boost!

I was actually disappointed with this shoe. The sole is so thick and heel is so high that it's difficult to flex at the balls of the feet and if feels like I could roll my ankle easily. Also the opening is so wide that slimmer jeans do not fall or sit right over the shoe. I was thinking it would be similar to Puma Roma's but it's really not.

Got these for my Dad who has been wearing some version of this style in Glasgow Celtic green for 30 years! He loves them, likes the bounce and plenty of room. Always great service from Zappos! Thank you!

Adidas were as described with free next day shipping! You can't beat the prices plus next day arrival? Zappos will get my business from now on!

My feet are on the narrower side and I have found that Adidas and Puma are the two brands that fit best. This shoe fits great and is comfortable. No complaints.

I'm so happy to report these shoes fit great! I have the black/white combo (Samoa) & got the men's size 7.5. I typically wear a 9, so these work perfectly. They are super comfortable & I'd certainly say I'd recommend them to a friend. Enjoy!

I love Zappos. I just ordered the Adidas Samoa's. Loved the sneakers but they run a little big. If you wear a womens size 71/2 buy a size 7.

My son loves these great shoes; this is his 5th pair! He has extremely long, narrow feet, and Samoas work for him (size 13 and laced as tight as they can get!). They're also made well, lasting a long time with daily use.

The whole process of ordering my shoes was very easy. They were delivered on time as promised but when I opened the box the suede on the tip of one shoe was totally discarded, almost greyish in color. I'm very disappointed in my purchase and would think twice about ordering any item through the internet.

Very nice looking shoe in general with a retro look, but I didn't like how they looked on me when I actually got them. They look too "teenager-ish" for me personally, being in my mid thirties. Also the fit was a little narrow and slightly uncomfortable.

What can I say, when it comes to Adidas and pumas, I like old school. It's comforting wearing my same old school sneaks that I did 25 ears ago in high school. Comfort and style, win-win.

Overall, these shoes are awesome. I am very picky about style, and it took me forever to find these. The biggest complaint is the insoles. They have a very high arch which is hard as a rock and are not removable. This is fine for my left foot, but my right is slightly shorter and if I ever wear thick socks it rubs and pushes and drives me mad. This might also have to do with the fact that they're intended for men, and I'm a woman. Otherwise, they look awesome, are overall quite comfortable and roomy. I'm just going to have to find a way to rip out those insoles.

Great shoes - well made and very comfortable. The only thing that I would say - is they get hot - either its just me or they don't let your feet breath well. Aside from that tiny issue - they are fantastic. In just the month or so that I have had them, I have received several compliments. People at first think they are Sambas but then realize they aren't, and that they are better than Sambas.

I have probably owned 10 pairs of Stan Smith's over the last 15 years so I was pretty bummed when they went on sabbatical (although I hear they are coming back this winter). Since my go-to casual sneaker was not an option, I decided to try the Samoa... I love these shoes! They have great arch support and a surprising amount of cushion. I have worn them so much that the tread has finally started to fall off in the back so I just bought a new pair. The only thing I would note to someone new to the style is I did find the toe of the shoe to catch on carpet at first but that stopped after about a week once I got used to all the rubber on the front. The bottom line is they look great, are very comfortable and run true to size.

My usual size was 1/2 size too large. Didn't return because size smaller was out of stock and I wanted an all leather sneaker. Liked earlier versions better that were sleeker, lighter and less clunky.

I liked the style of these shoes, but just could not get comfortable in them. Heel is too high and shoe is at least a half size bigger than marked. Developed some blisters, which is not usual for me.

Not for flat/wide feet. It's an 'ok' shoe. The product is somewhat comfortable, but after being on your feet for 8 hours a day, after about a week or two, I started to feel it. I have flat/wide feet so this shoe really doesn't suit me.. Another drawback is the tongue on the left shoe ALWAYS ends up crooked, and it scrunches up on my big toe, causing pain sometimes.

I have loved Adidas since I was a kid, and have never turned my back on their "Originals" line. Their shoes have always been well made, sharp looking, and comfortable. But, I have to admit, the Sambas were the first pair that have done me wrong. The heel and arch are both solid, but the toe is just too narrow for a comfortable fit. If you cannot live without having these good looking shoes in your arsenal, maybe try a half size larger or know you have toes!

Ordered these as a replacement for my 8 year old Adidas Samoas. They were still comfortable after 8 years, but they were ugly and the traction became non-existent. So I had to replace them and did so with the same exact shoe. Incredibly comfortable. Easy fit. Look great. This is my shoe.
