“I think the silhouette is attractive to many groups because of its simplicity. Gazelles allow people to use them in many ways and take on the personality of the wearer. They are unlimited. We thought it would be a fun challenge trying to capture the spirit of the Gazelles. The idea was to select prints that, like the shoes themselves, could defy any kind of specific definition. We feel like the Camo and the Cheetah did that. “– NOAH founder Brendon Babenzien
Both Gazelles are inspired by the slightly slimmer style that was popular in the 80s and 90s in New York. One has a faux pony hair top printed with a cheetah pattern along with elements like three white zigzag stripes. stamped with the gold NOAH branding, white leather heel tab finished with the NOAH signature logo and a white OG tongue embellished with the blue adidas Trefoil logo. The “Camo” pair is made from canvas and features the same composition of white leather panels on the midsection, heel and tongue, each equally embellished with either NOAH or Adidas Originals branding. Both pairs are finished with a vintage white low profile sole.
