Retro models are a norm in the sneaker world, but how many silhouettes out there can boast the heritage of the adidas Gazelle? This suede soccer classic made its debut in 1968, so the short answer is not many. Still going strong over forty years later, the shoe gets some slight upgrades in the form of the adidas Originals Gazelle 2. Not to fear, the impeccable suede and leather mixture is intact, as well as the classy gold-leaf lettering that runs parallel to the iconic three stripes. This cooler colorway pairs a silvery grey with purple pieces of leather for a neutral look. Check them out after the jump and grab a pair now at Shelta.
