UPDATE: The big bird of the savannah just jogged over the horizon and is making a dash for the Gazelle. Looks like that adidas Gazelle Ostrich Pack will be with us sooner than expected, with Titolo teasing a drop on August 26. Keep a close eye on the flightless mega-fauna and you might get to take one home as a pet.
We are currently in the midst of a Gazelle renaissance. While more technical models in the adidas arsenal might be hogging the limelight at present – namely the Ultra Boost and NMD – the time-tested Gazelle is holding its own and doing what the classic Three Stripe low-top does best, delivering lush materials and clean colourways. Keeping to this MO, the Gazelle 'Ostrich Pack' delivers two tonal make-ups made of premium leather and nubuck. So why is this called the 'Ostrich' pack I'm sure you're wondering? If you take a sneaky look at the medial-side branding, you'll notice that it is made of exotic ostrich leather, with the bumpy hide adding a subtle textural pop.
The adidas Gazelle 'Ostrich Pack' will release September 26 through adidas Originals stockists.
