When people think of Los Angeles, they’re quick to jump to legendary sports franchises like the Lakers, Dodgers, and even the LA Kings. Los Angeles isn’t necessarily known for being a city centered around soccer, but when the Los Angeles Football Club made its debut back in 2014, the energy shifted. The LAFC gave new life to the soccer scene in Los Angeles and the club quickly garnered a mass of diehard fans. Since then, the team franchise has grown immensely and the adidas Samba “LAFC” is a testament to the team’s success.
This honorary adidas Samba is being released alongside the adidas Gazelle “LA Galaxy,” as apart of the sneaker pack that celebrates the Los Angeles soccer teams. The adidas Samba “LAFC” uses eggshell-colored leather to create the upper. Suede craftsmanship on the toecap, adidas Three-Stripes, and heel tab further detail the sneaker. The LAFC emblem is printed on the tongue in shiny gold foil, which matches the “Los Angeles” stamp on the side. To finish, the sneaker is secured with white laces and sits atop a classic gum sole.
The adidas Samba “LAFC” is set to release on November 13, 2021. You’ll be able to purchase these sneakers from adidas.com for $90. Additionally, this sneaker will also receive two limited edition iterations including an all-black friends and family version, as well as a one-of-one custom designed by Factory8384. The Friends & Family edition is a part of the NTWRK app’s FootyCon and will be released on November 10th for $125. The one-of-one adidas Samba “LAFC” by Factory8384 is an extremely exclusive release that will be raffled off via the adidas Creators Club. Sign-ups take place from November 15-19th. The winner will be announced on November 19th. The price is unknown. For more adidas releases and updates on all your favorite sneakers, follow @NiceKicks on Instagram.
