Are they worth the moolah? Very tempted.

I bought a pair a few months ago, they're fab!

lol I had these first time around. They were great.

I have 4 pairs, one I got myself and 3 others as gifts from OH for different occasions, love them! Pretty much all I wear.

Shamoffour Mon 06-Mar-17 20:29:11

Love them so so comfy. I have bright red.

PlumsGalore Mon 06-Mar-17 20:29:56

They are rather narrow fitting I find.

Have been looking at them after somebody on here rec'd them - was it you, Sham? Have they got lots of cushioning? I need something as comfortable as my Nike Roshe, but less 'sport' looking.

I have a few pairs blush and I bloody love them.

I also have Superstars which I am living in right now.

Shamoffour Mon 06-Mar-17 21:24:25

Yes Remus it was me. They have a pad of cushioning under your arch. They are kind of moulded. I wouldn't say they are narrow fitting I've got man feet (size 7/8) and quite chunky and I don't struggle.

Anyone on here got Stan smiths too? I've currently got a pair of stan smiths and a pair of superstars at home and need to send 1 pair back. But I've now seen some grey gazelles which I blooming love! I've got narrow feet size 6 and I'm worried the stans make my feet look like boats. Plus I've read stans tend to get bigger with time.
Is it the same with the gazelles?

Rainshowers Mon 06-Mar-17 21:33:11

I'm waiting on delivery of a pair of grey gazelles. I'm quite exciting as have been debating over them for a while. Do you find them true to size?

RockyBird Mon 06-Mar-17 21:34:02

I had them first time round too. Wish I'd kept them.

Shamoffour Mon 06-Mar-17 21:43:43

Jonesey I've got gazelles and Stan smiths. The stans make my feet look smaller than the gazelles. Give me a mo and I will take a pic!

I love gazelles. I had some about 20 years ago. Very tempted when I need a new pair of trainers to go for them again.

Shamoffour Mon 06-Mar-17 21:48:57

Sorry my stans have seen better days!

ChishandFips33 Mon 06-Mar-17 22:56:55

Aw I had forgotten about my gazelles first time round!!

Mine were pink back in the day

Off to google grey ones!

ChishandFips33 Mon 06-Mar-17 23:05:05

Trainers for me when I was younger meant sport/functional so I would never think to wear them as smart like this

I think I might be tempted to try though

Justmuddlingalong Mon 06-Mar-17 23:09:01

I tried grey suede Gazelles on the other week, but couldn't justify the price for another pair of shoes. I got these Adidas Neo in grey suede for £19.99 instead. I got a half size up and I love them.

ChishandFips33 Mon 06-Mar-17 23:38:25

That's a great price Just for something very similar!

Shame they're sold out in my size sad

Justmuddlingalong Mon 06-Mar-17 23:40:21

Small feet here wink

luckycatclover Mon 06-Mar-17 23:55:42

I have baby pink ones and I love them! I get so many compliments. They are my fave.

fuckkit Tue 07-Mar-17 06:30:40

I have them! I have wide feet and they are some of the comfiest shoes I've ever worn. Love love love them.

Joneseygirl77 Tue 07-Mar-17 06:39:54

Thanks Sham.

I think I actually prefer how your gazelles look as they look much slimmer. I really can't decide what do you get more wear from? Stans or gazelles?

nigelforgotthepassword Tue 07-Mar-17 09:10:57

I Have Superga's as my white trainers-getting some grey gazelles next. I find I can't wear them with skirts though as they come too far up my foot and make my ankles look chunky. Slimmer than Stans on the actual foot though.

Shamoffour Tue 07-Mar-17 09:47:40

Jonesey I would say I wear the stans more but only because they are white. Sometimes the red just don't go with what I'm wearing. If they were more neutral like grey for example I would probably wear them more.
