Some things are designed to last, no matter if it’s a Rolex, a Cadillac or a pair of trainers, particularly those created by Adidas. The Adidas Gazelle is one great example of a well created design that will never be left out of the trend circle, an icon of effortless design brilliance. Though it’s an unfortunate thing that they are not winning any awards for their ground-breaking technology that pushes the boundaries or just for simply being bad-ass in design, the Adidas Gazelle has been creating a change and shows no signs of slowing down.
The original design of the Adidas Gazelle was conceived as an indoor football/training shoe but that didn’t stop them from getting re-issued in hundreds of different colour ways and shapes over the last few decades- moving on from a mere training shoe to a streetwear must-haves. This timeless, streamline aesthetic of the shoe is made from silky smooth suede uppers combined with a flat white midsole that creates an amazing, absolute belter of a trainer that was seen of some of the most influential sub-cultures throughout the few decades.
When Adidas introduced to the world the Gazelle collection, little did they know that down the line, they would be selling two different version of the same line. First, the Gazelle OG, introduced back in 1968 as an indoor soccer shoe and the second, Gazelle (also known as the Gazelle 2), introduced several years later. Though these two version might share the same name, don’t be fooled – the Gazalle OG and Gazelle are 2 vastly different kicks.
- The OG has a more pointed shape from the back all the way to the front, a slimmer midsole with a much shorter tongue. The longer tongue on the Gazelle 2 can be quite a trouble for those who wear pants with shorter hem.
- Gazelle 2 is made from a rather synthetic material that can be kind of squeaky at times. (It feels like you have a squeaky toy stuck to your shoe all the time)
- A way larger toe box for the Gazelle 2, which gives your little chubby feet more breathing room.
- Gazelle OGs are way, way lighter than its younger sibling, which may come in handy when the temperature reaches inferno-level.
