Style of the Adidas Gazelle Indoor

The Gazelles are low-profile classics that overwhelm fans with nostalgia. But that’s not to say that these Gazelles are old and soon-to-be-gone; they’re very much alive and kicking, standing toe-to-toe against time. And over the decades, time can’t seem to beat their style. The older the silhouette gets, the better it looks.

Adidas Gazelle Indoor Midsole

The crisp-looking Gazelle Indoor seamlessly works well with a wide gamut of casual and sporty outfits, as well as styles ranging from athletic, hip-hop, street-wise, laid-back, ragged punk, skater, grunge, to rock and roll. The Gazelle comes in well-revered color concepts, such as active red/cloud white/gum 3, core black/hi-res aqua/cloud white, collegiate navy/active green/bluebird, and grey two/active red/bluebird.

History of the Adidas Gazelle Indoor

The Gazelle’s DNA can be traced back to the Adidas Rom, the brand’s response to the 1960 Rome Summer Olympics. The Rom was one of the brand’s most ancient silhouettes—even predating the Superstar, Campus, and perhaps even the Stan Smith—and from which the first Gazelle was molded.
