  • Can't Actually Play Soccer with 'em.

    Dec 4, 1999 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Comfy, Stylish
    Cons: Flimsy, Not for actual competition

    Summary: I haven't owned a pair of Gazelle's in five years. I first saw these shoes and they looked sweet! They come in several different colors, bright red being my personal favorite. And actual the first time I ever played ball with these shoes the touch was ... read more

  • Fashion, not function

    Oct 10, 2002 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Classic, retro Adidas look for CASUAL wear.
    Cons: Poor craftsmanship, zero durability, NOT FOR PLAYING!

    Summary: For some reason, a lot of people think that these are soccer shoes. THEY ARE NOT! These are for casual wear and are marketed as so by Adidas. The shoes are not designed for indoor play and will respond so if tested. The rubber outsole will fall apart and ... read more

    Apr 24, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: durability and style
    Cons: none

    Summary: a big hand clap to adidas for maintaining their old skool line of shoes...in a world of increasingly complex looking shoes (prestos) a gleam of light lies in the past. coming in an array of colors, i have burnt orange (hard to find, opposed ... read more

  • Some do, some don't

    Dec 22, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Stylish and comfortable
    Cons: Second pair hasn't held up as well as expected

    Summary: Let me start out by saying that I love the Gazelle. But, if you're planning on doing anything besides wearing these for casual use, you'll want to invest in another kind of shoe. I've owned two pairs of Gazelle's and had two very different results. I ... read more

  • Gazelles

    Sep 29, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: They look nice
    Cons: You can't play soccer in them

    Summary: If you want to just look good in your shoes, I'd recommend these. But if you are planning on playing soccer in these shoes, you are making a big mistake. I bought these shoes a few months back, and have already blown them out. For the price I paid, I ... read more

  • Sweet shoes

    Aug 4, 2000 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: durable, comfortable, stylish, lightweight
    Cons: not carried by many department stores

    Summary: Adidas has always put out the best gear that never goes out of style. I had a pair of these shoes that lasted me over 2 years....now that is quality that is not seen anymore. The Gazelle is a prime example of a great shoe put out by a great company....it ... read more

  • IS OLD STYLE TOO OLD?

    Aug 4, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Good for casual wear
    Cons: horrible for playing soccer

    Summary: I have had the adidas Gazelle's before now and although they are nice shoes for casual wear they don't have enough support, durability, protection or grip to do you any good in a game. When somebody steps on your foot the shoes thin leather does ... read more

    Pros: i love them
    Cons: n/a

    Summary: OK, first off, my pair of blue and red gazelles never touched a soccer ball. I havnt played soccer for over a year and dont plan too in the future cuz i figured out how lazy i am. But in the last year me and my gazelles have been through alot. From ... read more

  • Wear 'em on or off the field

    Jun 4, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: style, all purpose
    Cons: durability

    Summary: I needed a pair of casual shoes to wear, so I went with the very stylish gazelles. These shoes are very comfortable to just wear around. They are also shaped perfectly to kick the ball around, or play an indoor soccer game. They are all purpose. Just ... read more

  • Piece of cow butt

    Feb 13, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: they have blue ones
    Cons: worst product ever to wear the adidas name

    Summary: These were DESIGNED for indoor soccer, how come if you use them for anything but easy street wear they fall apart like wet toilet paper? I admit after I felt I had to move on from the Samba Classics the Gazells caught my eye. The Gazells although ... read more

  • Smooth Indoor Shoes

    Feb 13, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Classic appeal
    Cons: fall apart, horrible tread

    Summary: The Adidas Gazelle's are one of the greatest indoor shoes ever made. They have been around for almost as long as indoor soccer has been around. These shoes have an excellent feel on the ball and are very quick...However, if you plan to wear these shoes ... read more

  • Nice to look at...

    Dec 27, 1999 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Appearance
    Cons: Traction, comfort when playing

    Summary: The Gazelles are a fairly classic, very nice looking indoor shoe. They first came out when the colored soccer shoes were hard to find. I bought my Gazelles during the summer and enjoyed them throughout the summer and fall with no problem. They were ... read more

    Dec 4, 1999 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: light, mold well and are unobtrusive
    Cons: fall apart quickly

    Summary: Healdkw couldn’t be more wrong about this shoe. Not because what he wrote is actually wrong, because it isn't. The shoe is low quality and really wasn't designed as a serious indoor soccer shoe. It was designed mainly for looks and it quickly ... read more

  • More than fashion - durable functionality

    Nov 8, 1999 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: durability, touch, colors, price
    Cons: ????

    Summary: Sure they are cool, sure they are multicolored, but is that why you buy a training shoe? How about this...mine are now going on 5 years old, and have survived probably nearly 100 seriously high intensity astroturf indoor/outdoor soccer games ... read more

  • Some things never go out of style

    Sep 17, 1999 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Classic style, soft cushy sole
    Cons: Don't try to play in these, purely leisure wear

    Summary: The Gazelle is definitely a fashion item and has become a classic because of its style and comfort as a casual shoe, not its performance as an athletic shoe. I have owned two pairs of Gazelles and have had both pairs for about ten years. I wear them ... read more

  • Casual baby, casual

    Jul 19, 1999 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The ultimate in casual soccer style
    Cons: Expensive for just a casual shoe

    Summary: Gazelles are money. In terms of style, they are rivaled only by low top Chuck Taylors in terms of universal appeal. And like Chucks, color is the only point of contention. (Blue are my favorite.) The suede leather and padded tongue are incredibly ... read more

    Pros: cool and very comfortable
    Cons: old colours discontinued

    Summary: these are the best/coolist trainers ever made. they are as timeless as denim jeans and as comfortable as a pair of sheep skin moccasins. I got my first pair in the mid 80s, they were ideal for breakdance and BMX shoes. Back in around 1991 was the last ... read more

  • Best/Safest Indoor Shoe Around

    Jan 4, 2005 by
    Rated Show
    Pros: Sole grips just enough allowing needed "give" on turf.
    Cons: Not much support and wear out quickly.

    Summary: The problem with gum soled indoor shoes is they grab the turf too much. Because they don't slip out, force transfers to the knees which can result in ligament damage (torn ACL). That's why I play in gazelles because they have no grips on the sole. The ... read more
