The guy in the next room just purchased a new pair of Adidas Sambas from Zappos, and he said they were a limited edition because the stripes were light neon green. What's up with these, and does anyone think these look good?

Nice. It's often disaster when you mess with a classic, but these are pretty cool. Can't put my finger on it, but the neon has a real football feel to it (in the continental sense of the word).

probably because the stripes could eventually get tinted light green from the grass if you actually play the game on a good field. most of the time, i played on patchy to nearly bare dirt. so my stripes on my copas are slightly tinted brown.

On the site it's mentioned that they're Zappo-exclusive.

Am I the only one who hates sambas because of their crazy arch-support?

on every pair I've ever tried on the Samba's arch supprt is at least an inch to far forward, which makes for an uncomfortable wera.

Zappos tends to get exclusive colors. I bought a pair of White with Bright Blue Stripes and Toe Puma Romas with smooth leather (kinda like the Roma Pigskins) that I can not find anywhere else anymore. All of the other white with blue romas have a grayish suede toe.
