Adidas Gazelle was first issued in 1968 as an all-around training shoe with a streamline profile and innovative cushioning that led to its popularity among the world top athletes. You probably already know that this low-profile classic trainer was first seen as a football trainer. Over the years, Adidas has produced the original Gazelle in different colourways without much change to the features.
To be honest, 1968 is quite old. That is about 51 years ago. Many millennial would probably not want to buy a shoe that is almost 51 years old. That is true! If I know a shoe is that old, I may not want to put my money on it! But, what if the quality of the shoe is great? What if It gives you what you have ever wanted in a shoe – comfort, durability, great style, etc? I would not mind going for it.
This post is metaphorically not about that 51 years old original Adidas gazelle. I can say nobody still has any 51 years old shoe in a store! What you could find in any store is the updated version with better quality and probably the same colourway that looks way better than some model shoes – that is why they are classic.
Adidas Gazelle (1968) version was updated in 1991, with the same materials, colours, but a little change in proportion (wider proportion). The one shown below is the 2014 edition that comes in a black suede upper, Adidas three stripes signature, the gold branding and the Adidas original tongue logo.

Is there any product that has pros without cons. That is possibly impossible. Okay, maybe to me, a shoe can have perfect features – everything I have ever wanted in a shoe. However, my taste of colourways, features and styles is different from others. In this case, what seems perfect to me may be awful to others. No matter how perfect a shoe is, there are things some users will point out that make them give it thumbs-down. That is why this category is included in this content.
