Adidas Samba 2019 – 2015
Evaluate by The Good Trip

After 2017 the Adidas Samba grew to become a really recommendable mellow response boot and for 2018 it bought a bit of higher.  It’s bought essentially the most skate like really feel out of all the Adidas line. The 2019 Adidas Samba is similar boot because the 2018 mannequin. Each are finest for those who purchase half of dimension down out of your regular shoe dimension.  For instance, I’m a dimension 9 on the dimensions however the 2018-2019 mannequin suits me finest in an 8.5.  The identical works for our crew in different sizes too and the dimensions down half of dimension rule works fairly properly.

James’ Foot Specs

Foot Width: Proper and Left between a D/E
Arch Size: Proper 9.5 and Left 9
Calves (Widest Level): 17”
Calves (At high of boot): 12”

Match: The 2017 Adidas Samba match fairly properly in a dimension 9 and solely felt possibly 1/Four dimension too giant on me however the 2018-2019 Adidas Samba suits significantly better for me in an 8.5.  The identical goes for the remainder of the sizing all over the world aside from UK sizing which appears to suit true.  It additionally runs as huge as some huge boots and is nice for individuals with wider ft.

Flex: When tightened up properly there’s a fairly mid-level flex that’s excellent to work with most boards on the market. When loosened a bit it’s bought a pleasant med/mushy flex that might work properly within the park.

Flex Retention: So we love the articulation tech within the ankle right here that basically works properly.  It’s going to carry it’s flex for some time

Consolation: The Adidas Samba is fairly comfy however I do really feel a strain level on the highest of the foot the place the tongue meets the boot once I flex ahead. I believe it should break in however it’s a slight concern. Every thing else concerning the boot works advantageous and I don’t really feel any strain wherever else.  There’s a lot of room for my toes to maneuver and flex so it is not going to really feel like I’m in a forged. The 2018-2019 Adidas Samba feels even higher than the 2017 mannequin.

Heel Maintain: The fuzzy liner holds the ankle properly sufficient however I can really feel it slide up.  I’d prefer to see the opposite liner Adidas makes use of to place within the Samba after which it ought to maintain rather a lot higher.  Nonetheless, it’s not that unhealthy for my foot.  I don’t assume it should have an effect on the way in which I experience and I personally really feel individuals are inclined to freak out an excessive amount of on the subject of heel maintain. I’d quite have circulation in my ft and room to flex it than no heel raise.

Adjustability: Conventional lace boots are superb on the subject of dialing out your boots to your ft and are very underrated.

Response: It’s a really mellow skate like response happening right here that doesn’t actually need to smack a boards edge forwards and backwards shortly.

Traction:  Excellent traction due to the rubber.  It’s not ultimate for mountain climbing however it’s nice in onerous to icy car parking zone ice or in raise strains on onerous days.

Shock Absorption:  It’s bought that minimal shock absorption skate-like really feel and out of all of the boots within the Adidas line this feels essentially the most like a skate shoe. It’s the precise reverse in comparison with the Power Enhance boots on the higher finish of the road.

Diminished Footprint: The footprint on the Samba is outstanding and from what I’ve seen up to now it’s on the high of the business.  Check out the comparability between the Samba and the Burton Almighty.  Burton makes use of to be the perfect when it got here to diminished footprint tech so it’s fairly spectacular to see the Samba match similar to Burton on the within however be that a lot smaller on the surface.  This dimension 9 is roughly half of″ to three/4″ of an inch smaller in total size which may be very spectacular.  it’s an amazing boot to decide on in case you are on the border between a daily board and a mid/huge however need to slot in a daily board that appeals to you. The one factor we observed is as you get into bigger sizes there isn’t as a lot of a distinction between the footprint on the subject of corporations like Trip, Thirty Two and Burton. Adidas continues to be a bit of smaller however not as small as you will notice on this pic with a dimension 9 comparability of the 2017 mannequin.

On & Off Ease: It’s bought a straightforward slide out and in and the laces aren’t that onerous to get on/off.  It’s solely a bit of slower than BOA and pace lace.

I discovered these boots very onerous to interrupt in. After that the flex was good for me, with sufficient flex for park however sufficient help to not break your ankles on harsh landings. Not too long ago although the small strain that I felt on high of the foot grew to become painful and I developed a “bump” on high of my foot. Presently I can’t use these boots anymore, which is a bummer as a result of I believed I discovered a brand new favourite. Somebody talked about you’ll be able to take away the stitching that holds the tongue in place and that resolves the problem with the strain on high of the foot. If somebody has extra information on that please let me know, I do not assume I perceive what the reviewer was referring to.


2016 Adidas Samba

Using Model: All mountain •

Peak, Weight And Boot Dimension (for Boards, Boots & Bindings): 185cm, 90kg, US 11 Boots 

I needed to take an opportunity and purchase these boots on-line throughout a sale as a result of there are very restricted retail choices the place I stay and so they are inclined to hammer clients on value.

I take a US 11 in nearly all the things and located the Samba 11 was a bit of giant. Not sufficient to trigger points however not good for me, the toe field appeared fairly huge.

The standard of the liners and outer boot appeared superb.

I’ve a robust choice for laces after unhealthy experiences with boas and the Samba laces up rather well. It took a couple of days of using for me to really feel I used to be capable of get the decrease a part of the boot (across the foot), tight sufficient however I finally bought a pleasant match. The lacing and form of the tongue across the higher part was actually good for getting the precise pressure and help. The one approach I believe this might have been improved was some lace locks.

The strain level over the instep that others talked about was mildly current for me too however not when using. As quickly as I put any ahead lean or weight over the toes it went away. It was by no means painful when strolling or sitting, simply barely noticeable.

I believed the boots gave first rate shock absorption and I by no means had cause to complain. I haven’t got a number of expertise with different boots to check with although (besides the Adidas Tactical ADV I purchased to exchange these. The Tactical is an entire totally different degree.)

One wonderful characteristic of the Samba is the only. It’s tremendous grippy and appears sturdy.

I solely rode these for 32 days however they did not appear to be dropping response or folding. I solely moved them on as a result of I felt I might go a dimension smaller and located a pair of the Tactical ADV in the precise dimension at half value.

The footprint of the Samba is de facto small. With a dimension 11 boot you might be at all times within the cross over space between medium and huge bindings. I went for a big Union Contact and moved the heel cup all the way in which in. I bought the arrange properly centred over the board however there was a good bit of wriggle room within the binding foot mattress, both aspect of the boots. I’ve since tried them in a medium Union Falcor with the heel cup pulled out and the match can also be good.

Total I used to be actually pleased with the Sambas, particularly for the value of them and I might fortunately personal / use them once more. I took a star off solely as a result of I might prefer to see Adidas match Sambas with some lace hooks which have a bit extra grip, much like the Tactical ADV.

Peak, Weight And Boot Dimension (for Boards, Boots & Bindings): Dimension 10 boot 

I bought these low-cost. they first rate and fairly comfortable. they match true to dimension.
I’ve the 2016 mannequin.

the problem of the strain level on the arch is actual. however to repair it that you must take the liner out and simply minimize the stitching that holds the tongue in place.

The boot itself is a bit of to versatile to be a great boot for charging however strong in park or for a beginner.
One factor with adidas is you’ll be able to actually comb the outlet malls for gross sales with adidas and decide up bargains. I’d examine these to low degree burtons however i picked these up for AUD$147 which is about half the value of comparable boots even on sale.
i do assume they flex an excessive amount of on the high and trigger bizarre strain zones if not very properly secured. i really feel the highest is simply too unfastened for any onerous charging, keep on the blues and park with these.

All in all if newbie or indermediate that has a reasonably versatile board these are nice if you will get them low-cost. the repair to the problem of high of foot strain level is straightforward.

I like the look of those boots. I purchased these for $149.00 on the finish of the Season, and it took me 2 full days of breaking these in on the mountain at A-Basin. They’ve first rate flex however I lace hem pretty tightly for acceptable response throughout turns. They’re first rate boots, and I like to recommend them. I am unsure how they’d work for a park rat, although as I am in to steep runs and deep pow.
