SNEAKER SUNDAY

ADIDAS ORIGINALS GAZELLE SUPER

By Nic Hayman, 4 June 2017

The pick of the kicks this week is a lesser-spotted alternate version of an undisputed classic. Presenting the adidas Originals Gazelle Super.

The Gazelle Super has serious cult appeal. For years this has been a silhouette revered by adi heads for its scarcity. While the standard Gazelle has remained ever-present in adidas’ arsenal, the Super variation was only produced in a limited run in 1987 from their production centre in what was then Yugoslavia. All new levels of #veryrare going on here.

 

This Eastern European obscurity brings a little disruption to the the OG Gazelle’s clean, minimalist look with the addition of a midfoot window panel, which frames some high-contrast retro adidas lettering. While the physical changes are slight, the history behind this pair is huge, which made it a no-brainer as our pick for Sneaker Sunday. As always, head over to @ASOS_Man now for your chance to pick these up on the free.
