What is the difference between the Adidas Samba OG and Vegan?

The Adidas Samba OG and Vegan are almost twins when it comes to appearance, but there are a few differences that set the two apart.

Starting with the OG Adidas Sambas, the base material is made from smooth white leather which contrasts to a light brown suede touch on the front of the toe box and a dark brown heel tab. The Iconic Adidas 3 stripes match to the hue of the back tab, both on the inner and outer side of the sneakers. Based on top of a gum rubber sole, a blue Adidas emblem sits on the tongue tag and stands out against the neutral hues.

For the Vegan Adidas Samba, it's all in the name. Adidas stay away from materials created with animal products by replacing the OG Sambas full-grain leather base with faux leather to form an almost identical appeal but for vegetarians.

When was the Adidas Samba created?

The Adidas Samba was created in 1949 and to this day is one of the most popular sneakers in the world.

The Adidas Samba Hype

The Adidas Samba was originally created in 1949 and brought out by Adidas for the 1950s Soccer World Cup in Brazil in which the three stripes got their name from the traditional Brazilian dance, Samba.

When people started becoming familiar with the Adidas Samba sneakers, they became obsessed and availability for the classic Samba low-top sneakers became almost impossible to find, especially in Women's sizes.

The hype for the 40s silhouette escalated in 2022 and into 2023, which was caused by American famous model Bella Hadid, when she was spotted sporting the Black Adidas Sambas, also known as the Adidas Samba OG "Black White Gum" during her trip in London. Numerous celebrities jumped onto the Samba wave with the likes of ASAP Rocky and Ellen Degeneres to name a few.

Social media played a huge part in the growth of the Adidas Sambas popularity by the large number of fashion designers, influencers and vloggers styling their pairs in the views of their friends, family and audience.

The Adidas Samba OG "Cloud White Core Black", AKA the Adidas Samba White shortly became one of, if not the most sought after colour of Adidas Sambas because of their sleek, neutral and wearable design which minimalists love.

Collaborations with companies from the likes of Sporty & Rich as well as Wales Bonner are desired by Adidas Samba lovers, going as far to say that they're grail status in reasoning of their premium materials, distinct style in addition to rarity.

Whilst the sneaker craze increased in volume, interest in new colours became on the radar with the Adidas Samba Green under the name of the Adidas Samba OG "Collegiate Green Gum" becoming a stand out design along with the black and white OG Sambas.

With all things considered, the Adidas Samba is not just hype, nor a phase, but a sneaker that will always keep its historic spot in both streetwear and football history.
