4. adidas Originals Gazelle
Nothing is quite as versatile as the iconic 3-stripes Gazelle. A reissue of the popular nineties version and a great choice for minimalists, this design has the same snug fit and durable rubber outsole - which provides grippy traction on uneven surfaces. We'd pair them with black skinnies and an oversized coat for an effortless vibe.
