I constantly get asked about this colour combination, so really pleased to see the Adidas Gazelle trainers in claret and blue returning.
Why is it so popular? Have a think about it. There are at least four football clubs that have colours similar to this one (with Premier League teams Aston Villa, Burnley and West Ham the most obvious), which is why this colour mix is always big news.
But it isn’t always available. Adidas did produce it back in 2010 and as a result of an old article I wrote back then, I get at least a couple of messages every week, all these years on, asking if I know where to find them.
Well I do. Just follow the link at the end of this article right now as all sizes are currently in stock. Miss out and you might just kick yourself for another few years.
As a shoe, this is a typical Gazelle, a style dating back to the 1960s but with a shape that tends to be based on the 1991 model right now. I’ve no idea why that’s just the shape Adidas has settled on.
Suede upper, contrast detailing, gold branding and a white sole. That’s pretty much it. A timeless shoe and one that’s available in plenty of shades. But this one not so much. If you don’t want to miss out, get your order in early.
£70 gets you a pair of Adidas Gazelle trainers in claret and blue or for someone you know for Christmas as there’s time to deliver for that as well.
