Adidas Gazelle Cutout Style
The Gazelle Cutout classic silhouette has a casual feminine vibe that looks great when paired with dresses. It also looks good with short skirts, distressed or slim jeans, leggings, and shorts.
Adidas Gazelle Cutout History
The Adidas Gazelle, released in 1966, was the first ever Adidas shoe to use suede. Adidas wanted to come out with a lighter weight model and the suede material made this possible. The Gazelle debuted in two colorways, the Gazelle Rot (red) and the Gazelle Blau(blue), which not only differed in color but purpose as well. The red colorway had a gum rubber sole for outdoor use while the blue one had a microcell ripple sole for a firmer grip on indoor surfaces.
Six years since its first release, in 1972, the Gazelle’s microcell sole was updated by Adidas with hexagonal tread patterns which the new Adidas Gazelle Cutout now sports. As a testament to the silhouette’s popularity, Adidas has launched many variations of this model throughout the years, and it continues to be one of the best-selling models they have.
The Adidas Gazelle Cutout is one of the newest iterations of the popular silhouette. It was launched in the first quarter of 2017 as a women’s exclusive line and featured a geometric cutout design and a synthetic leather and nubuck upper.
