We’ve all seen the dramatic impact that the weather has had on our outdoor activities this year. From scenic walks and bike rides to backyard barbecues and holiday parties, we’ve been kept indoors more often than usual thanks to the pandemic.
While the restrictions have been lifted, our physical health has not returned to what it was before the pandemic. Many sports and outdoor activities remain postponed until the spring and summer, which is when Adidas introduces the new Samba shoe.
Let’s take a look at what is new with Adidas and what this year’s model of the Samba shoe brings to the table.
The Evolution Of The Samba
Adidas has continually striven to improve upon the original Samba design, and this year’s model is certainly a step in the right direction. While the pandemic has undoubtedly kept us off our feet, it has also given rise to a healthier lifestyle. One which involves more walking and standing, which is why the new Samba is designed with a full-length Phyr™ frame.
Pattinson, the designer behind the new Samba, has explained that the entire design process started when he wanted to create a shoe that offered lightweight cushioning and durable traction. To achieve this, he turned to the most popular models in the Adi brand’s history and made them even better.
The result is a hybrid shoe that is lightweight, flexible, and packed with technology. While the original Samba was first released in 1975 and underwent several design updates over the years, this year’s model is an entirely new creation crafted completely from scratch.
The Shoe You’ll Never Uncover
With its lightweight Phyr frame, the new Samba doesn’t feel like a heavyweight when compared to other sport shoes. Its main adversary, the Reebok Pumps, are a good example of how much lighter it feels compared to other basketball shoes.
Pattinson has stated that he wanted to create a shoe that complemented the sporty vibe of this year’s NBA season. The result is a sleek, stylish shoe that will appeal to seasoned basketball fans as well as newcomers to the sport. The innovative design makes it easier for players to perform on the court, while the seamless front and back panels help keep your feet cool and dry.
The Ultimate In Adaptability
The entire process of designing the new Samba began with the advent of the Covid-19 pandemic. As a result of the restrictions placed on us by the government and corporate America, we have had to adapt to a new way of life and become more agile. One which involves more walking and standing, and makes it easier for us to workout at home. This is why the new Samba is extremely versatile and can be worn for multiple occasions or activities.
This year’s model features an elasticated mesh tongue and collar to help provide comfortable fit and stability while allowing for easy articulation. In addition, a reinforced toe cap and heel guard provide extra durability while the full-length Phyr frame makes the shoe more adaptable than ever before.
The Future Of Active Gaming
It is no secret that gamers will be quick to try out any newly released product, and with the release of NBA 2K League coming up, it should come as no surprise that the new Samba is being looked upon by fans of the virtual sports world as the shoe of choice for the upcoming season.
The shoe’s seamless design makes it easier for gamers to play dressed or undressed and also allows them to customize the fit of the shoe with various gaming accessories. Whether you are playing solo or in a group, the new Samba can handle whatever your physical condition is because of its lightweight design.
With the advent of next-gen gaming and high-performance computing, more people than ever are looking to step onto the court or their living rooms and put their reflexes to the test. The full-length Phyr frame provides the ultimate in adaptability, while allowing for easy articulation and increased performance, all served up in a simple, stylish package.
