To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Although these shoes look fantastic, after only owning my shoes for 2 days the white strip that connects to the bottom of my shoe is detaching from the sole and is forming a hole. These appear to be bad quality shoes I would not advise purchasing these if you want a shoe that will last you more than a night.
Purchased these for the other half who has many many pairs of gazelles. Whilst the look and fit match other gazelles in his collection there is something not quite right with the suede. Rather than the usual suede texture these have an almost velvet like finish, that marks very easily. So much so there was slight marks and scuffs on them when they arrived. After 6 days of wear the colour of the suede is already fading. This is not a good factor for someone who keeps his trainers in such pristine condition. These are certainly not up to the usual quality of Adidas gazelles, and I won't be purchasing any trainers from Amazon in the future! #lessonlearnt
They arrived with an insole that had Adidas writtten on it falling out of the shoe, because the cheap glue on the ultra thin insole had dried out. Pretty certain that the shoes would not have insoles at all, but have the Adidas information printed into the shoe itself which should have quality support build-into the shoe. The word Gazelle was printed differently on both shoes. The tongues on both shoes looked like it had been run off a 3D Printer being both very flimsy, but also having more material over and above the lined print. Amazon list these shoes as being sold by Adidas - is this even true? I have read that Adidas on sell to Amazon in the US. Either way these are Fake as hell. The shoes also had stitching coming away on the inside and the suede was of weird and poor quality - a lot of people have spoken of the suede not being right. I am sick and tired of buying brands of Amazon and recieveing fakes. This has happened via third party sellers, via fullfilled by Amazon etc. A brand new Ice Watch, Adidas shoes, headphones. I am a long time PRIME customer and I am getting to the point where I'm losing complete faith in them.
The Gazelles themselves are really nice, they look clean and fresh. But theres something off about the suede, as if it isn't truly real. But what really lets this product down is the size. Im a size 9 and this is too much bigger on me. The trainers say Size 9 but there definitely a size 10 or larger. It too big. This leads me to believe that these may be fake knock off gazelles. The combination of the weird suede and incorrect size is odd and would make sense if they were replicas and NOT the real thing.
Bit disappointed with the colour, they look more red in the picture. Opened the box and they are more burgundy/pink. Luckily i have a hoodie that matches it. This is why online shopping isnt as good as buying them in the shop. Fits just right.
The main reason for one star is the two shoes fit differently, one is ok and one is too tight - I haven't experienced this in a pair of shoes before, and am especially surprised an adidas pair of trainers is so uncomfortable, I cant wait to take them off at the end of the day. I have worn them about three times in a year - really disappointing.
