If the sneaker world had a fountain of youth, the adidas originals gazelle sneakers in orange may just have drunk from it. First released in 1966, what first began as a performance-oriented training sneaker has superseded its initial purpose to become an iconic silhouette, emerging every decade and touching upon almost every major subculture to become a truly timeless icon.Now, following the phenomenal success of the Stan Smith, adidas is looking to revitalize the Gazelle as its next retro bestseller — this much seems likely, given the sneaker’s simple yet characterful design that has allowed it to be co-opted by so many fringe cultural groups while being tied down by none. However, in this post-subcultural world of ours, it’s important to note the mark that disparate youth movements have left on the court sneaker in the past half-century, from Bob Marley to Oasis frontman Noel Gallagher.

Ultimate simplicity for three decades and counting. This men's version of the adidas originals gazelle super trainers in white honors the favorite version of 1991, with the same materials, colors, textures and proportions as the original. The leather upper features contrast 3-Stripes and heel tab that echo the early-'90s style.The Gazelle is undoubtedly one of the most famous and iconic shoes ever produced by adidas and has a long history dating back to the middle 60s. Although the shoe may be viewed as relatively simplistic in a contemporary sense, its unassuming and clean looking silhouette has endeared it to its many fans ever since and ensured it has been in pretty much continuous production for 50 years.

The origins of its name and its purpose have been much debated. Some think that it is a running shoe named after Wilma Rudolph, the US sprinter who won three gold medals wearing adidas at the 1960 Olympics in Rome and earned the nickname ‘The Black Gazelle’. But Wilma retired from competitive racing in 1962, four years before the commercial release of the shoe. Although the adidas originals gazelle og womens black was built on a track shoe last, adidas went on to test the shoe with the West German national football team and top international handball players which would suggest a more general purpose athletic model. Furthermore adidas named a number of training shoes after fast land mammals during this period such as the ‘Panther’ and ‘Jaguar’.

Adidas Originals is creating a luxe adidas originals gazelle collegiate burgundy model with a deconstructed one-piece upper adorned in C.F. Stead suede. Charles F. Stead is one of the most respected artisan suede tanners in the world and took his talents to this model dying the classic silhouette in an attractive navy hue. The “Crafted” Gazelle comes packaged with nylon and leather laces, a leather cleaning kit, and premium packaging that tie together the luxurious aesthetic achieved by the design.
