Dubbed as 2023’s 'shoe of the summer' by sneaker lovers in the northern hemisphere, 2023 has undeniably been heralded as the year of Adidas, in particular the year of the Adidas Samba. At the end of 2021 the Samba was slowly gaining notoriety, eventually Instagram mood boards and niche fashion influencers caught on to the compact yet timeless Adidas silhouette. Within the fashion community it is considered common knowledge that sneaker collaborations define a brand’s desirability. Notable English fashion designer Grace Wales Bonner with her unique fusion of Afro and European aesthetics revolutionised the Samba by providing various colourful renditions that achieved cult-status popularity. In addition to innovative collaborations Adidas began to dominate the recommendations-based algorithm of TikTok. Numerous creators began to create series titled ‘underrated shoes you need’ with the Samba often taking the top spot for its accessible price point and versatility.

Noticeably the Samba hasn’t been the only Adidas silhouette to gain popularity, with similar renditions such as the Gazelle, Campus, Spezial and Bermuda entering the streetwear market. The Adidas Gazelle is often referred to as the younger, chunkier rendition of the Samba, interestingly both sneaker silhouettes evolved from the sphere of indoor football in 1968. In the following years the Gazelle began to make an appearance on the terraces of football stadiums, particularly in Europe and quickly became the sneaker of choice for casual terrace culture.



Despite the brand's rising popularity, Adidas breaks free from the constraints of trend cycles, continuously introducing new and vintage silhouettes to its current repertoire. Notably the most famous Adidas silhouette that has been out of focus from contemporary fashion for the past few decades has been reintroduced, the BW Army – an iconic silhouette originally designed for the German army in the 70s.





In the ever-evolving world of sneaker culture, Adidas has undeniably taken centre stage in 2023. From the iconic Samba to the Gazelle and beyond, the brand's timeless and innovative designs continue to captivate enthusiasts. But Adidas isn't just about the latest trends; it's a brand that embraces its rich heritage. Take over the terrace and discover the newest addition to your summer footwear rotation.
