Adidas Originals Gazelle

Adidas Originals Gazelle Sneaker

The 1991 Version of  Adidas Gazelle Returns Starting June 1

Adidas Originals has been the go to brand for fashion and street style footwear, especially with the recent re-creations of cult classics Stan Smith and Superstar sneakers. They were re-launched in 2013 and 2015 and continue to be top sellers for Adidas. So it should come as no surprise that the German sports brand went back into the archives to re-launch the 1991 version Gazelle.  With the rise of Nineties streetwear fashion as a key trend, The Gazelle, known for its array of bold colors and suede is a fresh approach to the sneaker game, and will become a shoe everyone will sport. The 1991 version is a bit bulkier and adorned with a suede upper, leather jagged three-stripes and heel -tab.

The Adidas Gazelle was first introduced in 1965 as a soccer shoe in two colors: A red indoor shoe, and a blue training shoe both crafted of kangaroo suede. They were designed with a slim fit and developed into the basic training shoe for professional athletes until the Eighties as well as streetwear for soccer fans. Now for fall 2016, 53 colors will be introduced. Although many versions were offered under the Adidas Originals subdivision, the 1991 style has been out of production since the late Nineties.   The starting price point is $80 and will be available in Adidas own stores worldwide, and at Urban Outfitters in-store and online beginning June 1.
