These shoes are a beautiful colour. I wasn't sure about the tongue, it leaves my foot feeling a little sweaty through my sock but I'm sure I'll get used to such a little issue. I have wide feet which seem to be well catered for by this shoe, bunion not so much but what can you do? Top notch quality as always Adidas.
I've had gazelle shoes since the mid 70's... the quality from adidas has never changed. Although the concept of the shoe is old the function and fashion has never diminished. Thoroughly recommend the shoes as a fashion item... not really a running shoe as they once were.
I've been wearing Gazelles for years. Yeah, I'm old enough to have worn them when the first came out. They stopped making them for a bit a few years ago and then started again. But the shoes are different. The heel isn't nearly as sturdy and they fall apart after a while. Buy 'em if you like the style, they're classics. But be prepared to buy another pair pretty soon after 'cause they're not gonna last.
Great versatile gym shoe. I bought these to replace mt Powerlift 2.0 shoes which were a bit narrow and so uncomfortable when doing anything explosive where your foot pushes into the front of the shoe. These have a wide front which makes them much more comfortable. I typically use these for weight training or plyometric style training and the thinner, less cushioned sole is ideal but I'm not sure how they'd fare on a treadmill, for example.
Basically if you are the kind of person to want to stand out a little and dont want to blow 300 notes on some top range trainers, Gazelles are made for you. They are the classic trainer everyone knows what you are getting the newer version has a new tongue to it with slight grooves down the centre but this leads to it staying in place better and is a step up from the last version of a solid one piece of almost rubber.
Such a great, simple, but classic shoe. Highly recommend OVER the Campus or Stan Smith, as only the Gazelle still has arch supports!!! Not a fan of the rubber toe on the Super Star, or the large bump toe of the Samoa. To me, the Gazelle is perfect on the inside (arch support) and the outside (full leather from end to end).
Similar to Nanos, flat foot and very wide toe box. They look amazing and appear to be very durable. The black / red ones are more of a red-orange color with a dark navy blue on the sole. The sole is not entirely all black.
I finally worn out my second pair of supernova 7's and fancied an upgrade to the new supernova 9. Felt fine when I tried them on, but after a few miles running in them, I was feeling a discomfort under both my feet arches. Whilst there is huge amounts of cushioning, this was far too soft and resulted in my foot hitting the harder mid cushioning layer. felt like stepping on a stone every time I ran. I cannot run in these shoes, they are too painful. the old supernovas were great - i would recommend them to any neutral runner. the newest design is oh so terrible. £100 wasted.
Bought these but insoles weren't cut to correct shape and were unstuck. Ordered a 2nd pair but these were exactly the same. Not what I would expect from Adidas and an expensive trainer. Very disappointed.
