Using Superstars and UBs in the promotional banner but not actually having them on sale... disappointing :(.

There are no UB in this sale, but that doesn't make the sale cold. It's a decent sale still. Good if you need/want to diversify your sneaker game. The sale has a few good classic sneakers like Superstars and Continentals. The Nite Joggers, Pureboosts, and Solarboosts are alternative adidas sneakers for those who don't like UB.

And for you pot heads out there., here's an awesome shoe for you: https://www.adidas.ca/en/samba-og-shoes/DB3011.html. BUT before you buy, I feel I need to do a mini review.

adidas "Good Vibes" Samba
Image
Good: Materials are fantastic. The suede is ultra plush. The purple velvet looks amazing in person and pics do not do it justice. The tongue has a stash pocket... yes... a stash pocket. It also has a translucent sole with the a 4 and a 20 on the bottom of the sneakers.
Bad: In the initial pictures of the sneaker, the words "Good Vibes" are printed on the heel, but the actual shoes are blank
Image
Ugly: So that 4 and 20 they put on the soles.... well they got it backwards. If you put your feet up it says "20 4", not "4 20"
Image
Also this part really bothered me, but some of you might not care at all. The clear mid soles expose the laziness in the construction of the shoe. One of the stripes doesn't go all the way down. Normally, you wouldn't see this, but translucent soles exposes all. Seems like the QA was high when these were made.
Image

Overall, my issues are minor to nonexistent for others. And you can fix they 20 4 screw up by always crossing your feet when showing off your soles. Otherwise this is a fantastic looking sneaker. One last thing to note. These do run narrow.

I'm passing on the 500s because I got lucky with the surprise drop of the Yeezy 350 v2 Statics a few days ago.

Wasn't expecting such a detailed sneaker review on RFD 🤣. Really unique pair, shame about the missing heel tab text. Wondering how that velvet is going to hold up to dirt and grime though and cleaning though...
Beware the RFD Effect

I understand people have different preferences but man are they ugly..

They look like jabba the huts on your feet.... Or walking with several turds or tumors stuck to your feet.

Only people i ever see wearing them are foreign students. I like to think their style is simply based on sorting by price in descending order.

Got them to resell on StockX. It's the women that are driving the price up. Got size 5 and they are selling for $600+. Original price $280.

Thanks for this review. I was legit about to buy them but everything you pointed out puts me off from copping them. Maybe if they had another 50% discount like the outlet two weeks ago - maybe - maybe then I'd get them.

Let me guess, this doesn’t apply to the Samba OGs?

New UBS are ugly. Prefer the 1st and 2nd gen versions. Wish they came back
