I bought these shoes five years ago as indoor soccer shoes. After a while, I started wearing them as regular sneakers. These are possibly the most comfortable and versatile sports shoes that I have ever worn, and they are very durable. After over five years of wearing it every other day, through sports, and bad weather, the rubber started chipping off the heel (although any other shoes would have fell apart long before that). These havelasted me more than any other pair that I have gotten. Some people prefer the classic Sambas, but the Millenniums have better arch support, and last much longer. It mainly comes down to looks. So it is your choice. Overall, these shoes have a great classic look, and after they are worn down, they are very comfortable. They are excellent shoes for almost any sport, and have great arch support. Thank you Adidas, for making such great shoes.

Very cool and retro...but it's too big, way heavier and bulkier than you would expect, and it's not very comfortable. I'm really disappointed by these, actually. Especially because I expected them to be much lighter than they are. They still hurt my feet, even after they've been worn a few times.

These are great kick-around shoes. I am usually a size 10 but the 10's were small and thanks to Zappos great free return policy I was able to quickly get a size 10.5 and am now comfortably walking around in these great shoes.

Good shoes for racquetball. Good fit. Heel in back of foot is higher than most and takes a little getting used to but this seems to make for a snug fit.

These are great shoes. I've worn them before and just decided to come back to them since I can't find anything comparable. As a soccer referee I need comfort first and though they are a little stiff to start, once broken in these are a great shoe. Always incredible service from Zappos.

Took a couple days to break-in but are very comfortable. I absolutely love these shoes. My biggest gripe about the original Sambas is the tongue and Adidas has fixed that with the Millenniums.

My 14 year old son loves these shoes. He's into soccer and wanted something soccer-fashionable to wear daily. I can't take these off of him. I think they will last him this school year too (bonus!). Great purchase!

We had purchased shoes from another online site. They didn't fit. Plus took a while to get here. Cost me a lot just to send them back. (They were a decent price.) Shoe was for my son. Told him to find something on Zappos. He did. We ordered two different shoes. They came the very next day! One is the above soccer shoe. He loves it! Cannot say enough good things about Zappos. The customer service is outstanding! I haven't found that kind of service even at Nordstrom. We highly recommend this site.

I love the way these play. They are the best indoor shoes I have ever had. The look is great as well. I do not want to ding them too badly on comfort, but they rubbed blisters on the back of my Achilles. I never have had that happen before, however, I probably should just wear taller socks.

I bought these shoes for my husband, he has a smaller foot for a man and Zappos is amazing for finding his size. These were actually a replacement for his current pair of Adidas shoes so obviously he is a big fan of the shoe.

The shoes fit and look great. They seemed a little snug before they broke in, but now they fit nice. I wear them as everyday shoes and have a pair of classics for playing on turf.

Short and sweet. This is my third pair of black Millenniums (and I have one pair of white ones). There is no other flat soled shoe (semi-minimalistic) that is as durable and long lasting. I can't not continue buying them.

Brands I'd also recommend: Same shoe in white!

This is the shoe I've been looking for - much more comfortable than the Classic, yet still have the great style. I've received many compliments from my friends on these. I'll be getting the white ones next.

I had a really hard time finding the right size in this style and I ended up not trying any more and switching to the Adidas Predito. Adidas is always the way to go for soccer shoes, but I tried the kids 4 and 4.5 and women's 6.5 and nothing fit right. One's too big, one's too small and then too big again! Go figure that in the Predito I ordered the kids 4.5 and it fit perfectly, just like my Copas for outdoor. Through it all, Zappos rocks!

These are awesome! Same samba style but with slightly cooler updated GFX and better structure inside which makes for a more comfortable shoe. Great.

These get compliments everywhere I go. They are more comfy than your average Samba, but they still lack a little in the way of arch support. I have flat feet and do fine in them, but you feel it at the end of the day. Still, I recommend them.

Nice shoe. Order 1\/2 size up from normal shoe size. A little stiff at first (like all other Sambas I\'ve had) but are really comfortable once they loosen up.

These shoes (in black w/ white stripes) are a decent middle ground between old school/retro looks and modern arch support technology. They’re comfortable for what they’re intended for, which I’d suggest is light casual wear. No, I cannot imagine wearing them for sport – since there is no need to relive the days of when sneakers were all-sport and typically uncomfortable. I found these shoes light in weight but very well constructed, high-quality fit and finish in the stitches and gluing and very comfortable following a few days of break-in wear. I can’t say enough about the excellent online shopping experience from Zappos with free next day delivery from UPS.

Nice - I've been wearing Sambas and Samba Millenniums for about a decade, so I knew what I was getting, however these Millenniums felt at least a full size bigger than they should have.
