Kendall Jenner's Favorite Cult Sneakers Are Sold Out Everywhere But I Found Them

If I were to crown one sneaker style the key buy of 2022, it would be the Adidas Samba—hands down. The classic soccer sneakers have landed in the closets of celebrities including Kendall Jenner, Zoë Kravitz, and Kaia Gerber, as well as the wardrobes of fashion’s coolest insiders. Sambas tap into the retro sneaker trend that has been on the rise over the last several years, which we can also trace to the return of other popular styles including the New Balance 550s, Converse Chuck Taylors, and Nike Dunks.

The Adidas Samba sneakers have become so popular this year, however, that they are sold out practically everywhere online. Determined to find a pair for a friend, I hunted through retailers across the internet. While many stockists only carry larger sizes or limited colorways, I was able to find them on StockX, a site where you can buy and sell the coolest sneakers of the moment with prices that range by style, size, and current demand. Ahead, see how celebs and fashion people are styling Adidas Samba outfits, and shop each of the looks.

It doesn't get more off-duty cool than adding a pair of Samba sneakers into your weekend wardrobe like Kaia Gerber did.

Yet another way to style the sneakers with jeans? Add an aviator leather jacket—an outerwear piece that will be huge this fall.

It doesn't get simpler than adding a pair of straight-leg jeans and white ribbed socks—the ultimate classic pairing.

There are so many cool colorways aside from the classic neutral styles. Wales Bonner's collaboration designs are especially noteworthy.

A tweed jacket and slouchy white jeans are undeniably a cool match for the striped Samba sneakers—a great take on a tonal look for this season.

The sneakers are a great counterpoint to a pretty slip dress.
