We have recognized Brad Pitt as one of the best dressed on the red carpet. Because Once upon a time in Hollywood Press duty back in 2019, he donned a sleek Giorgio Armani and Brioni digital suit and a pair of sleek, high-gloss shoes. Sure, he may have dropped his tie here and there and switched a shirt over to a breathable t-shirt, but you can always count on him to create a smart look. for the books.
Pitt is currently on a worldwide press tour for his upcoming action comedy High speed train, will hit the big screen later this month and so far we’ve seen him take a more casual approach to styling on the red carpet. Probably because he knew this would be one of his last press tours — in our August issue, he talked about “the last leg, the last semester, or the last three months.” this” in his career — or perhaps he simply isn’t interested in conforming to an age-old red carpet rule that calls for men to wear tailored suits.
This week alone, we’ve seen him wear a cantaloupe slick suit, a khaki zip top and, just last night, a slate gray number with rough trim, under which he She was wearing a tattered low-collar T-shirt. While in the past he was a fan of slick heels, now he loves sneakers, especially Gazelles by Adidas and Gucci. His own simple shoes feature Gucci and Adidas branding, as well as unique red details on the back and cobalt stripes.
Red carpet-ready or not (we’re backing Pitt’s enjoyment), Adidas’ signature Gazelles are among the most popular shoe styles in the history of rubber soles, at least among the best dressed men on the planet. Launched in 1966 by Adidas to wear to training athletes, the all-suede, three-stripe design was simple, unbranded, and it found its way to The Foot. Rolling Stones, Beastie Boys, Prince Harry, and Kanye West.
Pitt, who has never been a fan of iconic suits, might endorse them for their timeless appeal — Sam Trotman, pop culture expert and founder of Samutaro magazine, suggesting that they are “a canvas for self-expression among those who wear it and allow it to live on the terraces of English football clubs as well as on the shelves of streetwear stores.” .”
Indeed, the Adidas Gazelles are so elite that we’ve put Liverpool FC striker Mo Salah in a pair on our February cover, while brands like Noah, Palace and streetwear labels are super fun. Japan’s Mastermind positions have all abandoned their own Gazelles in recent years. Meanwhile, the Gazelle was at the heart of the recent Adidas x Gucci collaboration (where Pitt is from) and the pair of sneakers has been worn by Harry Styles – now a Gucci collaborator – throughout the tour. his recent world tour.
And if you don’t want to spend too much money on Gucci versions, don’t worry: buying a pair of regular Gazelles is an equally wise move — and will cost you 1/8 the price.
