Liverpool is a city of two teams, two rivalries and two distinct colours that sit close to the either end of the spectrum. It is either Liverpool Red or Everton Blue.
The relationship of the city is built on a passionate backdrop of football fans, culture and rivalry, with the latter stemming from the deep-threaded opposition of Liverpool and Everton. Both of which are contained in close proximity, ultimately dividing the city between two colours.
The significance of football culture has transcended its way onto the terraces since the 70’s and 80’s, and nowhere has it been more apparent than the city of Liverpool. Adidas’ significant part in nurturing such casual culture has led to a magnitude of releases and colourways influenced by cities all over the globe with Liverpool being one.
To honour the red of Liverpool and the blue of Everton, adidas have released two distinct Gazelle Vintage sneakers accentuated in each colourway. The Gazelle is constructed from the DNA of 60’s training shoes, giving a nod to the first launch when red and blue were the only colourway options. Slim and lightweight, a suede upper dominates, with the ever-present adidas three stripes and gold-foil branding.
