As always with Gazelles, I ordered half a size bigger than my usual as they tend to be a bit snug if I get my exact size, so they fit absolutely perfectly. I'd recommend anyone else buying them to do the same, if you can't get a half size bigger to a full step up or you might find them too tight and they don't really tend to stretch out much.
I asked a question before ordering as to whether they come in the Adidas originals box (blue and white) and sure enough they did so thanks to the guy who answered me (a woman also answered and said they didn't which was odd)
They look great on, definitely quite unique colourwise and I'm not sure many will have them in this colour - some men are too macho to wear pink as they think it implies they're homosexual, but neanderthals do have a funny way of thinking, I've always found women like a man in a bit of pink so it shows what Mr Caveman knows. If you're comfortable in your own skin you'll have no worries wearing pink trainers, it's not like they've got Barbie or the Powerpuff girls on.
The colour is more of a peach than full on pink, or perhaps a dusky pink, however you'd describe it they're a really nice colour that'll go with almost anything, greys, indigo jeans and cyan blue will look amazing with them.
As a bonus they came with a spare pair of laces in white, in case you don't like the pink ones. As always though I'll be lacing in my own bought laces as I find the Adidas ones to be way too thin and they look more suited for a plimsoll than a trainer. They've always been that way though so I was prepared. I also sprayed them straightaway with a waterproof Suede protector which I'd highly HIGHLY recommend for these if you want them to stay looking good, it's worth the extra few quid (and they're sold here on amazon so grab a tin when buying the trainers), trust me it pays off when you spill something and it just glides off, or you get caught in the rain, Suede's a nightmare to clean and it's easily stained so it's always best to protect them.
All in all, I couldn't recommend these more highly to both the Gazelle aficionados and folk who've never owned a pair. They're stylish, built to last a while and super comfy. For £40 as well they're an absolute bargain as I often pay £60+ for the exact same style in other colours.
They were delivered within 20 hours of ordering too which was great, good work Amazon.
5 Stars all day long.
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.
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
The second gripe, that's right you've guessed it, is sizing. It is always different between styles. Up until now, this has mostly meant flipping a coin to decide if I should order a 9 or 9.5, and hoping I picked right. The one exception, up to this point, being a pair of Adidas Los Angeles (no longer available Adidas!) that only fitted me in a 10. Well, these V2.0 Racers certainly gave the Los Angeles a run for their money (see what I did there) in the sizing stakes. It was recommended I go a size up by other reviewers, but from past experience with Adidas, I had no idea if I was usually a 9 or 9.5, or even a 10 as far as Adidas were concerned. So, I knew it was still going to be a gamble when I decided to order a size 10. The decision took a fair few minutes of agonising over, I can tell you, as the last place I want to go right now is to a coronavirus-filled post office to return a poorly fitted trainer to Amazon!
Fortunately, the gamble paid off and not only did I receive a really comfy, slick looking pair of Adidas, but I also got an extra dopamine hit from winning the Adidas Shoe Size Lottery! To summarise, I'm typically a size 9 in most other shoes, so the best advice I can offer is that if you're usually a 9, then a size 10 in Adidas V2.0 Racers should fit nicely. Hope that helps, as I'm fairly sure you won't get the opportunity to try them on for size in a shop any time soon :/
I like the colour and style, but find they have a few annoyances. Firstly the size I got was 10.5. With a regular sock these feel too small on my left foot. With a thinner sock I can get away with it. I absolutely know that a size 11 would be way too big though. When ordering, I'd go for a half size bigger than you normally have.
Second, the tongue in the left shoe squeaks like mad. It's almost as if I'm hiding a mouse in there! Wrong choice of material for the tongue I think. Could also do with being a little smaller.
I would say go at least half a size if not a full size bigger.
The Continental sole is fantastic, just the right compound to make them great on any surface.
I will be buying the high top version in the future.
