Rolling onto the scene in 1966, the Gazelles didn’t just hit the streets – they owned ’em. Fast forward to the 1980s, and these kicks were reppin’ hard. Now, they’re back, reclaiming their throne from the Stan Smith as the top dog in the sneaker game. Low-cut, with that low-fi vibe and a laid-back attitude, Gazelles rock that retro style that oozes instant street cred with every step.

These aren’t just kicks; they are the perfect combo of street smarts and style. You want something practical and ultra-fly? Count us in. And while everyone is sportin’ ’em, the steez possibilities are endless. Here are four fresh ways to flex your Gazelles.

Retro Fever

Let’s kick things off with a vintage approach. With its liberating spirit and eclectic mix of styles, the 70s are still a major influence on the way we dress today. No fabric encapsulates the decade quite like our New Balance Athletics Varsity Satin Bomber Jacket, and no silhouette is more iconic than jorts. Partially due to whole blokecore trend, this style is all the rage at the moment, and with the right fit, you can easily rock this look with your new denim ventures.

Don’t worry if you don’t have a repertoire of jean shorts, our Vans Canvas Belt Shorts will easily do the trick. In addition, throw sartorial caution to the wind and combine our New Era 9TWENTY Retro Patches Cap with these two trends into the one outfit for an elevated look that is rooted in the archives.

As for the ladies, you can combine the adidas Originals Gazelle in the Navy colourway with skirts. Pair the shoes with the New Balance Athletics Icono-Graphic Skirt for that retro-2000s vibe that is both cool and elegant. You can also go for the fitted Supply & Demand Influence Rib Tank Top Women’s if you prefer something a little more figure-hugging.

Sporty and Athleisure

With the Nike NFL New Orleans Saints Kamara #41 Jersey, you can also style the adidas Originals Gazelle in the Green colourway in a sporty manner. Don’t forget to complete the athleisure look with our adidas AEROREADY Essentials Chelsea 3-Stripes Shorts and add a nice detail to it. The outfit offers the perfect mix of comfort and freedom of movement. In addition, the look is the perfect choice for any everyday situation and is also suitable for active pursuits.

Cosy Day Fave

Gazelles are often called upon to bring a laid-back, stylish touch to more formal ensembles, making them the perfect choice for elevating upscale outfits like suits or summer dresses. However, they’re equally at home when paired with Vans Checker Shooter Hoodie and Nike Swoosh Track Pants that prioritise comfort above all else. Furthermore, the low-key classic Black and White iteration complements loose-fitting, oversized silhouettes, creating a well-balanced and fashionable look.

Twice As Nice

Matching sets are an effortless way to make a fashion-forward statement. While coordinated ensembles look polished, there is an undeniable sense of ease about them, all thanks to the pairing choice. Among their many perks is that you can wear the pieces as set like the Supply & Demand Aoki Tracksuit or mix and match with other wardrobe staples like our adidas Sportswear T-Shirt and Nike Swim Essential Lap 7″ Volley Shorts. Bold primary colours offer a fresh take on the Y2K-era velour tracksuit—pair with Gazelles in a contrasting colour such as the Burgundy colourway for maximum visual effect.
