adidas Originals has revisited the archives with the release of its Gazelle Vintage in “Semi Flash Lime.” This pair is a throwback to the 1980s, reintroducing numerous retro design tropes such as its elongated leather and suede heel tab, low-cut nylon tongue and archetype gold-foil stamping on the medial rear-quarter panel.
The pair stays true to the original with its use of hairy suede, and continues this theme with the zig-zag-cut Three Stripes crafted from crisp white leather. Elsewhere, adidas Originals adds a Trefoil logo on the tongue, zig-zag detailing to the eyestay panel and pays homage to the terrace culture that populated this design with a clean off-white-hued sole unit, nodding to the pair’s indoor football heritage.
Take a look at the adidas Originals Gazelle Vintage in “Semi Flash Lime” in the gallery above, and pick up a pair for yourself at adidas stores and online for £89.95 GBP (approx. $117 USD).
