Adidas Velosamba, one of the most iconic shoes in history comes to clipless pedals
In 1950 Adidas first introduced the Samba model, a shoe that would become an icon during the 1970s, first in indoor football and then in the city. Now they come in a cleat-ready version under the name Adidas Velosamba. Are these urban clipless shoes the best looking ones to date?
Adidas Velosamba, an object of desire for urban cycling
The benefits of riding clipless pedals on a bike are more than proven, but when it comes to urban cycling, aesthetics and comfort play such an important role that specific shoes for clipless pedals are often neglected. Adidas wants to change that with the new Velosamba, a shoe that is virtually identical to the street model, the Adidas Samba, on the outside but with the option to mount cleats.
Not long ago we saw how Adidas arrived in cycling footwear after more than 15 years away from this market and now they are reaffirming their position with these Velosamba that have become an object of desire among urban cyclists since their release.
The Adidas Velosamba Cycling has a hybrid outsole with an inner plate for efficient pedalling and a secure fit in the heel, with a twin screw cleat (MTB) compatible design. In addition, the classic Adidas three stripes are reflective along with the heel for increased visibility when the sun goes down.
