From the 1960s to 2016, from rock kids to skate crews to casuals, the adidas Originals Gazelle has slotted into more subcultures than almost any other sneaker. The ‘90s, with its Britpop, Brooklyn rap and grunge, was undoubtedly the shoe's golden era.

For FW16, adidas is helping the Gazelle to reclaim its cult classic status with a lookbook that channels the spirit of these ‘90s-style tribes through the artists that still drive them today. Teen spirit Selah Marley carries the flame of her family’s reggae musical heritage; Pro Era talent Kirk Knight remakes Brooklyn’s rap game with his own stamp; Bully singer Alicia Bognanno leads the charge for grunge; this generation’s leading skateboarding talent Tyshawn Jones skates his way from the Bronx; and indie pop band Palmas bring the raucous energy of classic Britpop.

Check out the the lookbook above, and afterwards take a look at the Three Stripes most luxurious Gazelle yet.
