What alternatives would anyone recommend to Adidas Gazelles as a Christmas present for a man in a similar style?
Check Massimo Dutti: https://www.massimodutti.com/mt/men/shoes/sport-n1419
Or maybe Superga might have what you are looking for: https://www.superga.com/collections/men

other than sambas or spezials - i’d say that these Pumas are creeping up as the next big thing - Palermo Lth Unisex Sneakers | PUMA
