    Adidas is launching vegan revamps of two of its classic sneaker designs.

    The sportswear giant is launching its animal-free versions of the Samba and Continental 80 today (June 9) in the U.S., costing $80.

    The shoes, which are part of Adidas' 'Our Icons Go Vegan' range, are made from a PU-coated recycled polyester upper.

    Vegan Adidas Samba
    The vegan Samba comes in white with black stripes, and a grey T-toe. Describing the shoe, Adidas says: "A step in the right direction. The Adidas Samba shoes are no stranger to covering expansive ground.

    "With the same look and feel as the original style, this version advocates for a better future with an entirely vegan design. The signature T-toe keeps them rooted in the soccer fields of the past."

    Vegan Adidas Continental
    The vegan Continental comes in a classic white colorway with red stripe detailing. Adidas says: "The shoe that once found its rhythm in the packed fitness studios of the '80s makes some new moves today.

    "These vegan Adidas shoes completely eliminates the use of animal products. So swap out the bold colors of the '80s and exchange them for a brighter future."

    Some of their iconic shoes now in vegan:

    Your choices have an impact. They're part of your power. When it comes to the future, there's a lot to think about, but these adidas shoes help you keep stepping in the right direction. Made with vegan materials to advocate for a better future through the elimination of animal products. Look good. Feel good. Do good.

    €99 euro for synthetic leather & only €60ish for the real leather version.

    There’s other Adidas trainers with synthetic leather that go for €40-€50.

    Stick the word “vegan” on it & up the price. I’ll pass.

    Yes, there is a premium for everything really that is marked 'Vegan'.

    Hopefully that will change with time.

    I'm not sure I get you, the vegan and non vegan versions of the samba and superstar are the exact same price.

    Sorry, I was on about the continental 80 or whatever they’re called. They only ones I think are nice.

    I should have stated that.

    Here is a code to get it to €56 for the first person that wants. schuh133DB729-E69F-46E2
    I'd buy them but I have so many shoes waiting to be worn.


    I had a problem with these after nearly a year (flamingos life) and they just gave me a new pair no problem. Great customer serice
