Golf footwear is definitely getting away from the traditional look of classic leather, dress shoe look. The latest example is SAMBA from adidas Golf. One of the more popular and recognizable shoes on the planet, with more than 35 million pairs sold worldwide, SAMBA will be available in golfwear beginning March 1, 2012.
Introduced in 1950, the original SAMBA was created to enable soccer players to train on hard, icy ground and quickly evolved to become a dominant indoor soccer shoe.
SAMBA GOLF maintains adidas’ classic silhouette and 3-Stripes design, and features a suede toe-guard and distinctive tan gumsole equipped with six cleats and THINTECH low-profile technology the company says provides traction, stability and support. The textile, synthetic-leather upper is water-resistant and, adidas says, provides lightweight, durable performance.
The footwear is offered in medium width and three colorways: Black/White /Gum, White/Black/Gum, and Satellite/White/Gum available at retail on March 1, 2012 at suggested retail price of $100 per pair; red/white/gum will be released on May 1, 2012.
