Rock the Bell with the Gazelle

Sunday January 20, 2013

Produced in 1968, the Gazelle's original purpose lies hidden in mystery and speculation. Its silhouette suggests that it could have begun as an indoor soccer shoe. The streamlined shape, simple styling and flat sole are topped off with the suede upper to create a classic piece of design. The Gazelle rose to fame in the early days of hip-hop culture. Groups like the Beastie Boys made the shoe transcultural, a cult symbol for b-boys, skaters and indie-rockers alike. Yet regardless of your preferred scene, Gazelles with fat laces were the slickster's shoe of choice.
