Share This Page: adidas Gazelle Originally release in 1968 as an all-purpose trainer, the adidas Gazelle quickly became the favorite for soccer players. However, today it’s one of adidas’ top retro silhouettes. In 1986 took their sneakers from the field to the street when they paired up with Run DMC, and formed a long partnership with the hip hop group. Run DMC included adidas in their music, and flexed in adidas gear. This lead to a revolution of sorts involving adidas’ retro silhouettes, and invigorated the brand. Run DMC and sneaker fans incorporated classic adidas sneakers like the Gazelle into their style. The Gazelle has been a favorite due to its simplicity, and that quality has made it a timeless classic. The sneaker comes in several different colors and has seen multiple different textures in the past. Upgrade your style with the minimalist classic adidas Gazelle Sport Suede at City Gear.
