The Adidas Sambas, a popular shoe choice among celebrities like Rihanna, Paul Mescal, and Harry Styles, has recently come under the spotlight for a different reason.

These shoes, known for their style and versatility, found themselves at the center of a discussion following a video posted by the UK Prime Minister, Rishi Sunak, on Instagram. In this video, where Sunak aimed to talk about new government policies, it was his choice of footwear that captured people’s attention.

Comments quickly flooded in, with some viewers jokingly suggesting that by wearing these sneakers, Sunak was trying to show he’s just like everyone else. However, this move drew mixed reactions, with some seeing it as an attempt to appear relatable, while others thought it didn’t quite hit the mark.

Several British journalists and publications expressed their views on the matter, suggesting that Sunak’s attempt to connect with the public through his shoe choice may not have had the desired effect. They hinted that this could be seen as trying too hard to fit in, possibly taking away from the sneakers’ cool image.

CNN offered a perspective that the uproar might not be just about the Prime Minister wearing affordable shoes but more about the context in which they were worn. The idea was that choosing such casual footwear for a formal setting like an official video at 10 Downing Street might not have been the best fit, leading to a debate about the appropriate time and place for different types of shoes.
