The Gazelle: The Classic Three-Stripe Icon

 

christian confidential | adidas originalsIn early fall 2015, I had the opportunity to sit-in on a media presentation at Adidas Canada’s head office and preview what was coming down the pipeline for 2016. As you can probably imagine one of my favourite categories to check out from the brands portfolio was the Originals (good street wear will always be my weakness) and way before the presentation was over I knew Adidas wasn’t playing around with their upcoming releases. One of the key drops that I was excited about for SS16 were these sleek kicks featured here! If you’ve been a fan of the brand, you’re definitely familiar with The Gazelle- a silhouette that came out in the 60’s and has become a three-stripe icon all around the world!

Everyone has their own reason for liking this shoe but for me, it’s because of its versatility. I’m a sucker for a sneaker that’s comfortable, stylish and can be paired with a variety of outfits. The last time I was in Europe, I saw these sneakers paired with suits, ripped denim, joggers, sweatpants & more.  I got myself a pair of the clear onix, white and gold colorway and trust me when I say, they’re currently in heavy rotation!

As much as I love sharing my excitement about dope pieces through words, you all know, I’d much rather show you guys through visuals. My team & I shot this cool fashion clip featuring some of my favourite looks at the moment all worn with The Gazelle’s - take a look at it below and let me know what you think! It’s definitely been a while since we’ve done a fashion video and I’m pretty content with how it turned out! I’ll be sharing details about some of the featured outfits in another post later, so stay tuned for that! christian confidential | adidas originalsIn the meantime, if you’re looking to grab yourself a pair of these kicks head on over to Adidas.ca where they not only offer this colorway but a navy blue, white and gold one too!

Until next time,
