Kaia Gerber Just Wore the Summer's Most In-Demand Sneaker

Kaia Gerber Just Wore the Summer's Most In-Demand Sneaker

Just about everyone in Hollywood has been spotted wearing a pair.

At this point in fashion's long and winding relationship with the humble sneaker, it's a given that the sporty silhouette is a must-have in every stylish person's closet. Each season slew of the best new sneakers are released before the fashion set decides on a particular pair to obsess over for a few months. Options from New Balance and Nike have reigned supreme in the past, but this summer, it's all about the Adidas Samba.

The Samba, available to shop in white and black colorways, is a departure from the chunky sneakers that have risen to popularity recently. Technically a cycling shoe, the low-profile pick is easy to style thanks in part to its simplicity. The white iteration has certifiably become of the season's coolest white sneakers, proven by the fact that it's almost always sold out on Adidas' website and has been a mainstay on my Instagram and Pinterest feeds lately. However, I'm happy to report that the black version remains in stock and has also picked up steam over the last few weeks. I personally own a pair of the black Sambas, and I wear mine on a near-constant rotation. One note: I found that they tend to run big, so consider that before you pick up a pair for yourself.

One of the latest celebrities to be spotted in the viral sneaker is Kaia Gerber, who paired hers with black slacks, a denim shirt jacket, a coordinating blue plaid tote bag, and square-shaped black sunglasses.


Other early adopters of the black Samba include Kendall Jenner, who styled her black pair with a multicolored pastel matching short set while in Los Angeles. The model accessorized her casual ensemble with a coordinating oversized leather tote bag and a pair of slender back sunglasses.

Bella Hadid has also been integrating the shoe into her street style looks since late March 2022. Bella has styled her sneakers a number of ways since then. Most notably, she wore them with a plaid pencil skirt, a blue pullover sweatshirt, and white tube socks. However, she's also been known to follow Jenner's lead and style them more casually, opting for wide-leg jeans and a somple gray crop top. Harry Styles, for one, has also been wearing a number of colorful Samba options from Adidas on his most-recent world tour, proving their genderless appeal.




The great thing about black sneakers like these is that they can very easily be transitioned with the rest of our style as fall and winter weather approaches. Both Jenner and Hadid's recent outfits prove that Adidas Sambas work just as well with shorts as they do with lots of layers and longer hemlines.

Plus, similar to all of the best loafers or ankle boots that currently live in our shoe collections, a pair of simple, classic black sneakers like the Sambas are easily worn with any number of cold-weather essentials, such as tailored work-ready trousers or a chic black slip skirt.
