Soz, Stan Smiths! Why Gazelles Are The New ‘It’ Kicks

As Adi­das re­launches its cult Gazelle train­ers, Look stylist Kate An­drews lets us in on her life­long love affair with the never-date sneaks…

Look (UK) - - WHAT’S NEW -

If you’ve fi­nally just got your hands on a pair of Adi­das Stan Smith train­ers, you might want to look away now. For me, how­ever, news of Adi­das re­work­ing its iconic Gazelle de­sign is mu­sic to my ears. I got my first pair of Gazelles when I was about 15. They were baby pink and I thought I was amaz­ing – trust me, Gazelles were the thing to wear and I was the only per­son at school to have that colour. Fast for­ward 18 years and I now wear them in navy, with a flash of gold at the back. Yep, just like their new poster girl Kate Moss – the cam­paign fea­tures a pic­ture of Mossy in 1993 wear­ing a bur­gundy pair – Gazelles stand the test of time. They go with skirts, dresses and jeans and they keep their shape. I of­ten wear them to work, plan­ning to swap them for the heels un­der my desk, but end up stay­ing in them all day.

Right now, I’m off to re­live my youth and snap up a brand-spank­ing new baby pink pair…
