6 Alternate Sneakers To Shop When You Can’t Get The Adidas Samba

Ready to ship

By Astrid Taemets | 20th June 2023

Few fashion trends have the gravitas to keep us up at night, but finding a pair of adidas Sambas in stock and in your size in 2023 is like winning the lottery. Just ask our senior designer Charlotte who nabbed a pair ON SALE last week (!!!) and hasn’t been able to wipe the smug grin from her face since.

With the reign of the adidas Samba holding strong – and in reality, only gaining more traction – owning a pair feels like an all too distant dream we might need to wake up and move on from (all except for Charlotte), and in a hurry.

From the fashionable feet of Kendall Jenner, Hailey Bieber, and Kaia Gerber, to Europe’s most sartorial Scandi girls like Pernille Teisbaek and Claire Rose, Sambas are officially the most unattainable shoe right now. And with resale sites like StockX selling them for double their RRP price, we’re looking to these affordable and stylish sneaker alternatives that are just as fancy for your feet.

Get ahead of the crowd and shop our six picks of the best alternatives to the adidas Samba here:
