The title is slightly misleading, only one person can really evolve the Samba and that’s adidas. However, the outsole from the German sportswear company has passed hands so many times in China that slapping a Samba on your own upper is rather easy.
High-end fashion house Margiela (who makes a cameo appearance in Jay-Z and Kanye’s “N***a’s in Paris”) has long adopted the Samba outsole as its own, mixing it with its own uppers and materials.
This new drop utilizes a burlap sack like material that’s further infused with a hardened paint crust for some avant-garde appeal. Available now at oki-ni.
