The Gazelle Cutout offers an exceptional fit with a simple, modern styling. The low-top construction is designed to give plenty of mobility to the ankles—a nod to the training heritage of the sneaker. This shoe’s nubuck and leather upper give the shoe a supportive build.
The overlapping cutout construction is engineered not only to lend the shoe with outstanding style, it also gives terrific breathability to the footwear.
There’s a brief period of breaking-in needed for this model, but it shouldn’t last more than a couple or so hours.
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.
One thing that draws consumers to this model is its superior versatility. As one reviewer put it, she “can leave them on all day and not worry about changing my shoes if I have a night out with the girls.” The shoe can simply go with any outfit you have on, from super casual to semi-formal.
The overlapping geometrical cutout patterns on this classic low-top silhouette sets the Gazelle Cutout apart from most other shoes. It is instantly recognizable, even from afar, and certainly unique. The shoe’s sole, which features a distinctive hexagonal tread design, gives the shoe enhanced grip and support.
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 that the brand has.
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.
