Don’t like the new Adidas Gazelle World Cup Edition trainers? That’s ok, as you can customise pretty much everything about them.
This is part of a larger World Cup range, taking in official match shirts for the event in Russia through to more casual wear, which is where this particular Gazelle design comes in. The classic 1960s Gazelle is available for both men an women and themed in a number of country colours.
You can buy them ‘as is’ in a choice of a leather or nubuck finish, depending on your personal taste. But that’s not where choice ends. Of course, there is the option of the nation. See the site for the full list but there are quite a number to choose from. Then there are those details.
You can change the base colour, the cooler of the tongue, lining and laces, the heel colour, whether you want a flag or the Adidas logo on the heel, the colour of the sole and if you don’t want the country name on the side, you can go for the classic ‘Gazelle’ in gold too.
Ok, once you’ve done all that it might look nothing like the original shoe, but that’s personal choice for you. If you can’t be bothered or like what you seem just click the order button and you will get what is pictured on the site. It’s all down to you.
What isn’t up for discussion is the price. A pair of the World Cup Edition Gazelle trainers is £89.95, which is a bit pricier than a standard pair.
