There’s no denying adidas Originals’ impact on street style culture over the last decade. Whether you’re a sneaker connoisseur, a fashion fanatic, or just in it for the casual-look vibes, the Three-Stripes know how to deliver. In this round-up, we’ll be looking at some of the greats, including the Gazelle, Samba, Superstar and Campus, styled by your favourite celebrities. Let’s get into it!
Kicking things off with the adidas Gazelle, this retro silhouette has been killing it within the street style scene, and we can definitely see why. I mean, what’s not to love about effortless on-the-go simplicity? We all love a shoe that you don’t have to do too much with in terms of styling. One that just speaks for itself. And with a range of appealing colourways to choose from, you really can’t go wrong with the Gazelle. Jacob Elordi agrees; papped above rocking a green pair of the kicks. The Euphoria star pairs his Gucci x adidas Gazelle’s with a khaki sweatshirt, black shorts and a white backwards cap, for a casual didn’t-even-try type look (despite the substantial price tag).

Next up we have the adidas Samba. Does this model even require an introduction? Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you will have seen everyone and their Nan boasting these kicks. And rightly so! We’re truly in the thick of a Samba phenomenon, dominating the social media realm just as much as the streets. It seems that everyone approves of the silhouette’s sleek aesthetic, from A-listers like Jennifer Lawrence, to Rihanna, to Kendall Jenner (…and the list really does go on!). Who else to show us how we should be styling the heat than 2022’s very own Model of the Year, Bella Hadid?! Opting for a vintage-esque look, the supermodel pairs the sneakers with a plaid skirt and blue quarter zip sweater. If it’s good enough for the IT-Girl of the moment, it’s definitely good enough for us.

The adidas Superstar is next on the roster, having endured a notable resurgence in popularity in recent years. Communicating a distinctive retro flair through its iconic shell-toe design, the Superstar’s nostalgic appeal makes it a great rotation go-to. Collaborations with big players like Prada and Bape prove exactly how solid the silhouette really is, acting as a perfect canvas for creativity. Flaunting a pair in recent adidas Originals ‘Home of Classics’ campaign, South Korean girl band member Jennie shows us what the hype is all about. Sporting the classic white-and-black colourway that we all know and love, the campaign showcases the effortless charm of these kicks. Whether you’re going to the pub with friends or keeping things casual, the Superstar always understands the assignment.

What better model to end on than the adidas Campus. Originally created for the courts, the Campus transcended into a lifestyle icon embraced by various subcultures since its release in 1980. Now shown off on the streets rather than the hardcourt, the sneaker is loved by many for its comfort, durable construction and timeless persona. If there’s one person who’s going to want maximum ease (and steeze) when it comes to footwear, it’s football GOAT Lionel Messi. In a recent interview, the baller flexed the Bad Bunny x adidas Campus ‘Wild Moss’. Paired with some black denim shorts and a patterned shirt, the vibrant offering couldn’t be better for the everyday.
