Adidas Samba Classic (Kids)The Adidas Samba is not only an iconic sneaker, but it's Adidas' longest running model still in production. Originally produced in 1950, the Samba was intended for soccer players who were looking for better traction while playing on the icy/frozen ground. Today the Samba is available in a wide array of colors and materials, and still sports a design that is very true to the original.
