adidas Gazelle Vintage
‘Blue / Cloud White’ & ‘Scarlet Red / Cloud White’
FU9656 / FU9657
Aside from the Gazelle’s affinity with the sporting world and acceptance into just about as many style tribes as you could name, one of its most distinguishing features which saw it skyrocket to cult classic heights was its ability to take on a plethora of vibrant shades. Having now been seen in just about every hue you could imagine, the sneakers put the brakes on expanding their multi-coloured domain and instead look to the past for this latest release.
Arriving constructed from a textured hairy suede, this interpretation of the adidas Gazelle Vintage takes on its forefathers OG colourways, referencing when the sneakers first stepped on the scene during the ’60s in two distinct shades of both red and blue. Featuring serrated edge contrast three stripe branding to the sides as well as a trefoil insignia to the tongue, the sneakers come stamped with the classic gold metallic callout to the lateral side of the heel.
Further enhanced with a shortened version of adidas’ t-toe overlay, the sneakers are finished with a traction providing rubber outsole as well as a luxurious leather lining.
The adidas Gazelle Vintage ‘Scarlet Red / Cloud White’ and ‘Blue / Cloud White’ are available at Aphrodite now.
