Following their initial nautical-themed collection earlier this year, NOAH and adidas Originals reconnect, this time taking inspiration from late ’80s and early ’90s NYC.
The adidas Gazelle, a popular style at the time in the city’s hip-hop and b-boy circles, is offered in its OG slim profile in two colorways. One comes dressed in an orange camo and features canvas construction, while the other is covered in faux fur cheetah print. Each come equipped with contrasting white Three Stripes with gold NOAH branding. Additional NOAH branding is found on the heels.
“We thought it would be a fun challenge to try to capture the spirit of Gazelles in prints,” says NOAH founder Brendon Babenzien. “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.” These prints are also found on apparel in NOAH’s FW20 collection.
