Bought these shoes for my husband and he is so sexy with them...one of the best men shoes in my opinion.

Quality Replacement Shoe
I bought these to replace my favorite old, warn out adidas shoes. I was looking for something just as classic as what I was replacing, and this is what I found. So far, I have found that, because of the suede and the solid sole, the shoe seems very durable. Also because of these two things, the shoes have been a little stiff, and slow to break in. This is fine, though, because it means that the shoes are durable.
The sizing seemed right on, as my previous adidas shoes have also been.
Overall, I am very pleased with the shoes, and they are shaping up to be a suitable replacement for my recently retired favorite shoes!

Adidas Gazelle (the orginals)
I've loved these shoes ever since I was first introduced to them by my older cousin in 1997. The pair she passed down to me were old and worn in and I wore them until they were unrepairable. I love the great arch support for my feet and the thick soles for everyday use walking around or wearing to work (where I'm standing the entire time!). These shoes are a great product that give me what I need time and time again. Did I mention I LOVE the price point of these shoes, too?!!

Great Bboying Shoes
Besides the periodic wearing out on the sides, everything else is great!

Great shoe, but needs one small fix
I've owned several pairs of Gazelles. Great shoe, but Adidas needs to start cutting a slot in the shoe tongue, so the laces can be threaded through it. This will prevent the tongue from sliding side-to-side. I always have to cut a slot with an X-Acto knife.

a shoe well worth the price
I have been wearing only Adidas for the last 6 years so I know a thing or two about Adidas brand shoes. This shoe has a very good build quality, they use some good materials in the base of the shoe, but the tongue is made of what feels like some sort of Styrofoam it kind feels a little flimsy, which is odd because the rest of the shoe is well built. another issue I have is the piece behind the Achilles tendon, I have noticed when driving, this tends to irritate my Achilles tendon a bit (especially long trips). but the look of the shoe is flat out awesome very clean with bold use of the white, with a simple design.
-very clean style
-cheap feeling tongue (although it has not shown any signs of wear yet after a month of use)
-back leather may irritate the Achilles tendon when driving long distances.
overall I give this shoe a 4/5 its not as comfortable as the Adidas skateboarding shoe or the ceiros i previously have worn, but they look so good.

Just how I remember them...rad!
I owned these shoes as a kid and always loved them. They are exactly how I remember them. They are a little narrow for my feet but stretch a bit as you break them in. They are very lightweight and comfortable. I highly recommend these shoes.

purchased as gift
bought these shoes for my boyfriend. he likes to rock the gazelles over the all too typical sambas. other than that the best part of my experience was how quickly they arrived. they came the very next day!

These shoes are one of the best shows I've worn, they feel very comfortable. I thought it wasn't going to be comfortable at all but I was wrong. i wear it everyday and its pretty durable. For me it runs a little too narrow but I have wide feet. The tips of the shoe can get a little dirty so I clean it once awhile.

I bought this shoe cause all my friends that bboy say that this shoe is so light,comfortable, and durable for breaking and they were right. This shoe is the best shoe i have ever danced with. Not only that it looks good while u dance but in general they look great to. if u want a shoe for dancing or fashion i really recommend this shoe.
