I'm a big fan of Gazelles and have many in allsorts of colours, as soon as I saw a pink pair I had to get them as it's one colour I don't already own.
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.
