The Gazelle was released in its original form in 1968 and quickly became popular among football fans in the UK and Europe. During the 1970's the original design was changed to include a larger T shaped toe box and a semi-translucent mid sole. This re-issue, from the Archive Pack by Adidas Originals, uses premium materials in its construction. It comes in a premium suede upper in black with white leather stripes and heel tab, sat on the natural gum mid sole. They also include a spare pair of black laces.
