In celebration of the Gazelle’s 50th birthday, UK retailer size? has teamed up with adidas Originals to create a 2016 City Series featuring four Gazelle colorways that pay homage to a city where a size? store is located. The first to appear from the series is the “London” Gazelle, which features a red and black colorway one may identify with the city’s iconic pillar boxes.
The Gazelle maintains its classic silhouette with updated material — the interior and lining is made of Gore-Tex, making the shoe waterproof, breathable and ready for any weather conditions. Sitting atop a gum sole, the bright red suede upper is paired with a classic black Three Stripes branding, with matching black tongue, eye stays, laces, and heel counter. “London” is printed in gold foil on the sides behind the panel branding.
