Have always loved the Gazelles. Nice looking shoes and comfortable. As some have said, Zappos size conversion for male to female is off (which I knew from buying Adidas in stores), so order 1/2 less than their chart.

Am I the only one that gets the squeak?!? I got a pair of these once. The tongue is made of some sort of plastic material, and it rubs up against the part with the lace holes. They squeak with every movement. I thought they would break in and stop squeaking, but they squeaked and squeaked until they died. I still wore them when they were done, they are super comfortable, I just cannot stand that squeak. Maybe I just got a weird pair, because I am not seeing anyone else complaining. My pops said he rocked several pairs growing up. When it comes to Adidas, I am rocking Campus IIs and Campus IIs only. The Gazelles are comfortable and they look good though. But the Campus IIs are similar looking and have better arch support.

These shoes are gorgeous! Bought them for my 14-year old son and he's loving them! He wears them almost every day. They are comfy, trendy and look great with any outfit! We got them in 12 since Adidas tend to run a bit smaller but 11.5 would have been perfect. We decided to keep them because he will outgrow them soon anyway. We recommend these shoes!

This is a great looking shoe and comfortable. The only problem is my size was sold out, so I thought I could go one size down like I have in the past with other shoes, but these shoes actually run a little small, so I have to return them. Too bad the half size up from mine is sold out too. :(

These are a back up pair I purchased at the same time as some Cole Haans I needed for work. These were perfect and comfy but, haven't hit the ground yet outside. No issues. Although the Cole Haans that arrived had to be returned and appeared to have been used the stitching had come out of the side and they were boxed and shipped defective. The return was easy for those but, I was disappointed because I had intended to wear them that week.

Excellent shoe and, as usual, superior service from Zappos! The shoe looks great, especially with jeans. Buy a half size up. Shoe runs slightly small. I wear an 11 but in this shoe, I wear 11 1/2.

I haven't worn any other shoe for the last 4 years. They're comfortable and look great with everything. I've got multiple colors and replace them every 2 years or so. By far my favorite shoe. Won't wear anything else.

Pretty cool shoe. Got lots of compliments the first week. Probably because I wear the same pair of shoes for a couple years before I get new ones. But I always get Adidas because they last long time.

I bought these for my husband. He loves them! He either wears size 8.5 or 9 depending on the shoe. This shoe he definitely needed an 8.5 in this pair. They run true to size, or a little big. These shoes are pimping.

I really love these shoes. I think they're really cute and stylish. Some reviews mention the tongue, but it doesn't really bother me as long as I'm wearing socks that are taller than ankle socks. Normally I wear a men's 8 and a women's 9.5. I found that the men's 8/women's 9 fit me the best; the women's 9.5 size was too big.

The Gazelle is simply the perfect sneaker. I have bought it in many colors over the year. It is fairly priced and holds up over time. I highly recommend it to anyone looking for a casual shoe.

This is the first pair of Gazelles I have ever owned and the first pair of Adidas in many years. They are extremely comfortable. The suede leather is soft and supple. The colors are brighter than they appear in the picture; it is definitely a bold choice. However, I get many compliments on them.

Warning. If you wear low-cut socks, don't with these. Find higher ones to cover your Achilies. These bad boys will rub you raw. Other than that, one of my favorite throwbacks!
