The addias Gazelle Is A Classic Super Suede Silhouette
The latest adidas Gazelle trainer celebrates an era of Britpop, classic 3 stripes and the colourful 90s era.
Ask any trainer nut to tell you one of the most well known adidas trainers of all time and the Gazelle will always be up there. The history of the iconic 3 stripes style spans all the way back to the 60s, starting its design initially as a track shoe and then moving onto an all round sports trainer. Interestingly enough the Gazelle was also one of the first adidas trainers to be made from suede, something that would start a legacy with the introduction of other suede styles such as the Campus & the City Series further down the line. The Gazelle became a massive hit with athletes and the casuals throughout the 80s for its lightweight qualities and sporty looks, although it was really the early 90s edition which saw the boom of the Gazelle like no other with the sheer volume of available colourways. The Gallagher brothers would constantly be seen wearing the classic 3 stripes trainer with the Gazelle featuring in a variety of Britpop music videos from the era. In celebration of the colourful 90s era, the adidas Gazelle is now back at 80s Casual Classics in an assortment of fresh new colourways.
