One of the more creative ways to show support for the upcoming 2010 World Cup, comes from adidas with their World Cup Edition Samba sneaker collection. The Samba is a perfect sneaker to show your team support, as it’s one of the most popular indoor soccer shoes of all time. With roots dating back to 1950, the Samba has been a staple in the adidas lineup for many years, and in many variations.

In this latest World Cup Collection, the Samba comes in a leather upper in five different colorways. The unique part about these is that they come with interchangeable flag pins. For each colorway, three flag pins of three countries are included, so you can fasten on the pin of your choice to the top lace hole and show support for your team. Of course, with the World Cup being such an unforgettable event each time it comes around, it might not be a bad idea to add one of each colorway to your collection.
