I'm so excited to present these Vogue-featured sneakers, which were independently selected by the magazine's top editors. Adidas Samba trainers have stood the test of time. Vogue’s ultimate Adidas Sambas edit is below:

  • The Cult Classic, $190
  • The Supermodel Staple, $270
  • The Two-Toned Pick, $100
  • The Pop of Pink, $130
  • The Sought After Style, $508

This footwear represents a great tradition of sports shoes born out of the cold of West Germany, called the most colorful carnival ball, and are now once again among the most popular trainers. However, there is more fashion in modern takes than in football. The It-girls are proof that Adidas Sambas aren't going anywhere. For instance, Emily Ratajkowski loves Samba, while Bella Hadid and Kaia Gerber pair them with their crisp vintage threads and French-girl essentials.

It is often believed that Samba Football boots are a world apart, understood only by those who wear them on the green turf. It is also true for those who follow the sport so closely that they become nerds about every player's favorite shoes. Due to this, aside from very rare examples, boots have rarely made their way into everyday life like basketball shoes or running shoes. There is, however, one shoe that was born precisely to be worn on a football pitch and, after 70 years of an honorable career, has become one of the must-haves of the season, amidst top models and constant sell-outs. I'm referring to the Adidas Samba, of course. The silhouette has created a lot of hype because so many celebrities are in love with it.

Dress is a fundamental element of social evolution. It comprises one of the most basic building blocks of inequality. Fashion, likewise, is neither frivolous nor trivial. It matters, has consequences. Dress and fashion have a significant impact on the way people live, define themselves, and operate within their own habitats. It is a game of differentiation, the means by which one ethnic group distinguishes itself from another, one social status and religious affiliation from another. Dress and fashion help identify the foreign, the minority, and the marginal, and can emerge as an influential means by which people challenge their status and reshape their identity within their own societies or on the global stage. In order to understand the complexities of what people wear and why, sociologists, anthropologists, historians, philosophers, semiologists, linguists and many others input their immense expertise. The study of modern civilization fashion along with mass production can derive no assistance from world history before comparatively modern times. In human history fashion is new and its future path is unknown.
