Four Major-Inspired Colors Honor Golf’s Most Prestigious Tournaments
Carlsbad, CA (March 1, 2012) –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.
