New York-based label, NOAH, and the iconic adidas memorialise the late 80s and early 90s with the reworkings of the adidas original Gazelle model.
This collaboration follows on from the duo’s SL 72 and SL 90 sneakers that dropped earlier this year which may have proved them to be a creative match made in heaven.
This drop includes two colour-ways: one faux pony hair cheetah print and the other a multi colour camouflage, both models will include the signature three white stripes embellished with gold NOAH branding to finish.
Speaking on the collaboration, creative director Brenden Babenzien said, “I think the silhouette is appealing to so many groups because of its simplicity. The Gazelles allow people to wear them in any number of ways and they take on the personality of the wearer. They are limitless. We thought it would be a fun challenge to try to capture the spirit of Gazelles in prints. The idea was to select prints that, like the Gazelles themselves, could defy any sort of specific definition. We felt that Camo and Cheetah did that.”
