Whereas last year, every fashion person and their group of equally stylish best friends were wearing New Balance 550s on a daily basis, 2022’s sneaker of choice looks a bit different. Part of Gucci’s high-profile collab with Adidas, the German athletic brand’s classic Gazelle sneakers—which were first designed in the 1960s and have been worn by the likes of Kate Moss, Kristen Stewart, and Alexa Chung—are quickly becoming the most sought-after sneakers of the year, thanks to an elevated new color palette and gummy, logo-embellished soles. That, and a ton of new celebrity fans.
The latest to be photographed repping Gazelles from the collection is Don’t Worry Darling director Olivia Wilde, who is currently doing press for the movie in NYC and donning chic look after chic look to do so. Most recently, she paired a yellow-and-red version of the sneakers with a pair of dark ripped jeans, classic Ray-Ban Wayfarers, and the same tank tops your dad probably wears on a daily basis: Hanes’s ComfortSoft Tagless Tanks, which I personally buy on Amazon in packs of nine for just $26. On top, she threw on a chic black blazer and a not casual at all $35,000 diamond choker because why not?
Even with diamonds studding her neck, though, it was her sneakers that made the look stand out most. Below, shop her exact pair and more equally sought-after styles.
