How to wear Adidas Samba sneakers:

This shoe has a slimmer profile, so it’s best to opt for pants that hug closer to your body.

Not saying you should rock skinny jeans, but this is not the time to go for the big pants trend.

Instead, pants with a slight crop, or jeans you can cuff, make for good options to show off these stylish sneakers.

And, of course, shorts when the weather calls for them!

Smart Casual Sneaker Look

You could wear this to the office or a casual date night.

Casual in Camo

The Look: Weekend casual

SG Says: A statement-y top layer is an easy way to pull an otherwise basic outfit together.

The jeans and hoodie on its own? Totally fine.

But with the camo utility jacket on top? It’s a vibe.

Samba Sneakers with Shorts

The Look: What you’re wearing to Taylor Swift’s Eras tour (if you were lucky enough to get tickets)

SG Says: You will never regret the purchase of a long-sleeve concert tee. It feels just special enough to elevate an otherwise casual outfit, and is a way better memento than a souvenir sippy cup.

As for the socks, you can opt for a crew height, like the Pair of Thieves pairs above, or go for a style that hits a few inches above the ankle if you’re Gen Z (or just wish you were).

Shop the outfit:

Laid-back layers

Add a denim jacket on top, and you’re ready for anything.
