RESEARCH

Sambas are purpose-built for indoor soccer. In indoor soccer, it's ideal to have a very soft upper on your shoes. Leather is perfect because it only gets softer with time. As indoor soccer shoes are used the soles get smooth, making the shoes useless. Getting a new pair of shoes means you have to go through the uncomfortable breaking-in process again. 

"How can we extend the lifespan of the upper?"

Utilize organic forms to connect to sustainability and add a postmodern feel to the overall design. Textures and ridges that impact how the shoe's outer affects spin on the soccer ball.
