I wouldn’t usually go overboard about a new colour option, but the Adidas Gazelle trainers in white leather are worth talking about.
For two reasons, really. First, it’s a leather finish compared to the more commonly seen suede upper. I prefer that personally, not least because it’s usually more pacifical. Although the second point cancels that out somewhat.
But the second point is a big selling point, It’s the white leather matched with the red and black details. Yes, white might not be the most practical colour for trainers, but there’s no denying it looks good.
And with the contrasting details, it looks even better. Very old school – and that’s always nice to see.
But it is a Gazelle, which is pretty common and popular too. It has been for decades. With the occasional tweak, it has been selling in numbers since the 1960s. For good reason. It is a no-nonsense design, with that leather upper, T-toe overlay, a rubber sole and, of course, all the classic branding.
Just in, and if you want a pair, £75 gets you a pair.
