Three stripes – one shoe. Once you think about classics, you think about the ADIDAS GAZELLE, one of the most popular lifestyle sneakers in the last decades. Thanks to its simple, but tremendously aesthetic silhouette, numerous colorways have been featured since the Gazelle hit the market back in 1968. Originally, its use was mostly limited to enhancing the wearer‘s performance – a lot has happened since then.
From British pop to hip-hop. From Oasis to Run DMC. You couldn‘t tell pop cultures apart just by looking at their shoes. The transition from being the best perfomance sneaker to being one of the favorite parts of a sneakerhead‘s collection sure wasn‘t easy. Standards have changed – that‘s why you won‘t see NBA players wearing the Gazelle on court. Thankfully, that isn‘t its job anymore. Adidas kept releasing colorway after colorway after colorway. They added details as individual outsoles, heel caps or unique tongues. Once the Gazelle was relevant – it forever stayed relevant. If you are willing to set a remarkable fashion statement, you know which path you have to choose. Especially the all black inspired leather upper that goes perfectly with its shiny outsole and a small, golden ‚Gazelle‘ writing, enables you to be a hashtag ‚outfit of the day‘ candidate. A timeless design which already made its mark in the history books. Now its only mission is to go down as the greatest sneaker of all time.
