Adidas Gazelle Tonal Leather History
First introduced as a performance training shoe in 1996, the Adidas Gazelle has made a reputation for itself and has become one of the brand’s most iconic silhouettes, following the Adidas Stan Smith. The Gazelle, throughout time, has been one of the crowd’s favorite and have stayed relevant up until the present.
Being the first shoe from Adidas to feature a suede upper structure, the Adidas Gazelle initially was also only released in two colorways. The Gazelle Blau, which was the blue colorway, features the microcell technology and a microcell ripple sole. The other one was the Gazelle Rot that was the red colorway, showcased the “Olympiade” shoe inspired sole which was transparent and non-slip.
In the 1970’s, the brand started to do some experimentations on the Gazelle with different types of outsoles. A microcell sole with hexagonal tread was then released by the brand as a re-issue of the silhouette in 1972.
Variations of the Adidas Gazelle were then offered by Adidas as they did iterations on the upper construction of the silhouette as well. The Adidas Gazelle Leather was released in 2012 as a part of the Adidas Originals line. The shoe featured a crisp uni-colored leather upper structure and finished with a rubber outsole.
A tonal version of the Gazelle leather was released in May 2017. The Adidas Gazelle Tonal Leather was a part of the brand’s 2017 collection which features two colorways in triple black and triple white. Premium full-grain leather covers the upper of these sneakers for a luxurious appeal.
