For the latest addition to our size? Exclusive Archive collection, adidas Originals present the new Gazelle Indoor Gore-Tex.
The Gazelle has maintained it’s strong identity as a cultural icon since its introduction as a lightweight training shoe in 1966, and not undergone too many abstract transformations across this whole period. After this a recent bring back of the classic shape in 2016, there have been a series of great new colour additions and collaborations to keep its identity refreshed. With it’s clean, no-nonsense profile, the uppers have traditionally been produced in suede, with leather accents used on the stripes and rear heel tab. The leather tongue will always be branded with the iconic trefoil, with subtly embossed three stripe details present throughout.
A standout feature of the Gazelle Indoor it’s differing midsole, a sometimes translucent unit that drops the traditional hexagonal outsole texture in place of a combination of trefoils and suction cups, a feature commonly found on similar indoor training shoes during the 60’s and 70’s.
Bringing back a favourite material found on previous archive releases, namely Trimm Trab and Kegler, we’ve lined the heavy canvas outer shell with Gore-Tex to keep your feet dry during the traditionally damp winters here in the UK. Stripped back to black across the upper and opaque midsole unit, the only real signs of colour are the silver Gazelle insignia aligned along the side stripes, and signature yellow branded tab found on certified Gore-Tex products.
The size? Exclusive adidas Originals Archive Gazelle Indoor ‘Gore-Tex’ will be available via size? previews and in size? stores on Friday 2nd November, priced at £90.
