I agree with dakalvia on this. I used to have a pair of these. My soccer shoes take quite a beating from frequent use. Not only were the adidas samba classics one of the most durable indoor soccer shoes i've owned, they were also quite good in terms of ball-to-foot 'feel'. (in otherwords, they weren't so bulky and stiff that you couldn't feel/control the ball.) I do not own a pair now because of the slippery artificial grass we now play on in our area - turf shoes are more effective for that.
