Adidas is one of footwear’s giants. It’s one of the few true global brands out there, and they continue to be relevant every year with their style and vision. The Adidas Gazelle is a true Adidas classic. Many who think of Adidas shoes automatically think of the look and design of the Gazelle. The Gazelle has a style that transcends time, age, sex, and all other categories. There are many things about the Gazelle that people love, but mostly, people love it because it’s so organic and simple. You should know this if you happen to be a fan. If not, you should definitely look into these five best Adidas Gazelle models to try out for yourself. You won’t be disappointed.
Adidas Originals Gazelle
This is actually an update to the original Gazelle model. These have a true classic style, and they come in different color combinations. No matter which color you choose, you can guarantee that the Gazelle is made with high quality materials. The upper is made with premium leather that’s also soft and comfortable. The lining is made of breathable mesh, which will benefit your feet after you’ve had these on for long periods of time. Just make sure that you check sizing when you order a pair because these typically run larger than usual—meaning you might have to order a whole size down.
Adidas Gazelle Original Suede
The most defining feature of this shoe is the Gazelle insignia that sits bright on the suede upper. This Adidas classic is a staple in many fans’ shoe closets. The suede is what sets it apart from other Gazelle models. It’s soft and as comfortable as any other. The rubber outsole and padded foot bed all add to the comfort that you’re going to want to wear each and every day. It’s true; these are the perfect daily shoes. We like the Gazelle Original Suede in black the most because then you can just wear them with absolutely anything in your wardrobe. They’re versatile and durable—some of the best Adidas has to offer.
Adidas Gazelle Stitch & Turn Suede
Here we see another suede Adidas, but the look is entirely different. It’s a little bit cleaner if you ask us, and that’s probably largely due to the stitch and turn aspect of the design. The stitch and turn is mostly descriptive of the three stripes that are on every single Adidas shoe. The stripes on the Stitch & Turn Suede are raised, giving the style a distinct and more elegant look. If you’re looking for an Adidas that’s slightly dressier than the rest, the Gazelle Stitch & Turn will do your outfits wonders. We particularly like the Grey Two color for its subtle shade.
Adidas Originals Gazelle Sports Pack
For the ultimate throwback Adidas, the Gazelle Sports Pack brings the 90s back with its super low sporty cut and extra cushions. It has the stylistics of the original Gazelle, but this newer version has a lot of modern upgrades. The upper on the Sports Pack is made of durable pigskin leather, but it has a synthetic overlay that gives the shoe extra protection. The tongue and collar are cushioned for extra comfort as well as the foot bed. This model is probably one of the most durable; the rubber outsole provides ample support for extended wear. It’s not exactly the type of shoe that you would wear for heavy sports, but it’ll be more than comfortable for a daylong hike for sure.
It’s no surprise that the original Gazelle is still being made to this day after three decades in the market. Today’s original Gazelles are made the same way they were made back in 1991. The materials are the same as well as the colors, textures, lines, and proportions. The upper is made out of durable leather that comes in as many colors as you can think of. They’ve been a favorite globally for so many years, and if you’re not already a fan, you’ll be one as soon as you try one on. We also wouldn’t blame you if you eventually end up with a whole array of colors one day. This is exactly the kind of shoes that’s worth collecti
