adidas Golf introduces Samba majors collection

March 14, 2012

In 1950, adidas introduced a shoe, the Samba, that evolved into the most popular indoor soccer shoe in the sport. More than 35 million pairs of Sambas (and counting) have been sold since. The Samba is still available today.

Now comes the Samba Golf majors collection, four limited-edition golf shoes inspired by the four major championship -- the Masters, the U.S. Open, the British Open and the PGA Championship (they're shown in that order, left to right, above). Only 1950 pairs of each will be available, commemorating the year the Samba was introduced.

The dark green, sun and white colorway Masters edition is on sale now. The navy, power red and white colorway goes on sale on May 1. The Brit blue, university red and white inspired by the Union Jack goes on sale on June 15. And the pool, half orange and white patterned after the scenery at Kiawah Island, S.C., site of the PGA Championship, goes on sale July 15.

The shoes have an MSRP of $100.
