adidas Golf has unveiled their SAMBA GOLF majors collection for 2012, that includes four limited edition colorways, individually numbered and inspired by golf’s most prestigious tournaments. Only 1950 pairs of each model have been created, commemorating the introduction year of the original and iconic SAMBA.

Introduced in 1950, the original SAMBA was created to enable soccer players to train on hard, icy ground and quickly evolved to become a dominant indoor soccer shoe. Over time, SAMBA’s combination of classic styling and comfortable fit fueled its transcendence into a modern-day essential worn everywhere from athletic fields to city streets regardless of age and gender. Today, the SAMBA has sold more than 35 million pairs worldwide and now, for the first time, golfers can showcase the legendary footwear on the golf course and represent their favorite major in style.

Each limited edition SAMBA GOLF shoe features the classic silhouette and 3-Stripes design, a suede toe-guard and six-cleat outsole for optimal traction and stability. The textile synthetic upper is water-resistant and provides lightweight, durable performance. MSRP $100 USD.

Commemorating the season opener, this design is inspired by the vibrant colors, heritage and traditions of Augusta National. DARK GREEN / SUN / WHITE available on March 1, 2012.

Inspired by the historic Olympic Club in San Francisco and the patriotic stars and stripes in the United States flag. NEW NAVY / POWER RED / WHITE available on May 1, 2012.

Celebrating one of the world’s premiere links courses, this design is inspired by “Union Jack” – the national flag of the United Kingdom. BRIT BLUE / UNIVERSITY RED / WHITE available June 15, 2012.

Inspired by the warm beaches surrounding Kiawah Island and the epic scenery found in the region of South Carolina. POOL / HALF ORANGE / WHITE available July 15, 2012.

    Have worn a pair of Samba Golf shoes but I do enjoy some of the color schemes. Red,White and Blue can’t miss!

  2. Cookie says:

    Nice, I really like the navy/red/white and blue/red/white. For some reason, I thought these just had nubs and not any form of spikes but I see that is not the case. The spikes have definitely increased my interest in potentially owning a pair. Thanks for sharing!

    Awesome of adidas to do this. I especially love the US Open pair.

  7. ddec says:

    I like what they are doing, though I’m still not sold on the Samba. The US Open shoe is my favorite of the bunch.

  8. ddxu says:

    Those US Open shoes are sick. Nike better step up their offering this year to compete!!

  9. flashy says:

    I love these shoes. I predict someone will be hinting prior to Jul b-day.

  10. John says:

    I really like the Kiawah/PGA Championship color scheme. But I really like my Adicross too.

  11. tnolan says:

    this is really cool. not sure i would wear any of these colors, but i’m still saving up some cash to pickup a pair of the black and white sambas.

  12. damaikis says:

    Very awesome. If I didn’t already have Sambas, I’d want to grab the PGA Championship pair.

  13. yorkem says:

    These are awesome. I have owned a lot of Samba’s over the years, and would love to have a pair of these.

  14. Dr. Teeth says:

    These are very cool! I love the Major themes.

  15. Puttin4Bird says:

    A little flashy but very nice! I’d rock a pair for sure!

  16. bear4ever says:

    I wear a pair of TRU minimalist golf shoes regularly now and really like them. (Freddie, I really like my shoe’s!)
    The price tag, looks, and design of these shoe’s definitely makes them attractive to me.

  17. Troy Vayanos says:

    I have always been a big fan of adidas golf shoes and have worn the brand for the last 10 years. These are probably a bit bright and colourful for me but still look trendy enough.

    Like the green and gold ones the best as they are the colours of my country, Australia.
