In a rare addition to adidas Originals’ historic City Series, the brand with the three-stripes transforms the Gazelle silhouette into a tribute to two of Russia’s greatest cities this season for the Gazelle GTX City Pack – Moskva & St. Petersburg.
Using every element of the terrace classic’s design as a canvas to pay tribute, each of the two shoe’s colorways make reference to their namesake; for Moskva, a white full-grain leather upper nods to the original color of the Kremlin walls, while contrast red overlays bring the city’s iconic color to the fore. St. Petersburg’s offering then takes a darker seasonal turn in premium black nubuck, offset by collegiate royal three-stripes that references the city’s river, coat of arms and historic football legacy. Encapsulating the release’s celebratory nature, the classic Gazelle foil lettering on the left shoe is changed to Cyrillic / Russian text, while the right shoe states the city name. A final touch, full Gore-Tex construction, complements the release with a seasonal materialization that befits the colder climates of two iconic Russian cities.
Global release October 7th, 2016, $110.
