Gazelle Indoor - Shadow Green Gum
Whether on the feet of Kate Moss; the Beastie Boys; Björk or any number of fashionable people of the last 50+ years, the adidas Gazelle remains an icon itself. Their simple suede uppers with white stripes have become the archetypical adidas design since first releasing in 1966.
Compared with the original '66 release, 1979's Gazelle Indoor sported a slightly different upper with a wider toebox. If you know anything about old Gazelles then you'll know this is a welcome design change. The biggest visual difference between the different versions is the translucent cup sole of the Gazelle Indoor which was originally designed to optimise traction for hardwood floors.
This latest version does away with the full suede of the OG, substituting in a nylon upper with suede accents on the wear-prone areas. The tonal colourway is accented with a tea-coloured sole that retains the same alluring translucency of the originals, just in a darker hue. These are definitely a 𝒸𝓁𝒶𝓈𝓈𝓎 take on the '70s sports classic.
