Bad Bunny and adidas are back with another collab that’s set to turn heads. This time, they’ve reimagined the iconic Gazelle silhouette with the Gazelle San Juan. This new release is more than just a sneaker—it’s a tribute to Benito’s beloved homeland of Puerto Rico. Every detail of the design draws inspiration from the island’s rich culture, heritage, and even its streets.

The Inspiration Behind the Gazelle San Juan

The Gazelle San Juan is a love letter to Puerto Rican heritage and pride, reflecting not only Benito’s personal connection but also the global Boricua community. The design captures the essence of San Juan’s historic cobblestones, its pristine beaches, and the vibrant sea. The sneakers also pay homage to the Noche de San Juan, a night filled with tradition and celebration, embedding the island’s spirit into every stitch.


A Closer Look at the Shoes

Crafted with the hues of the capital city, the Gazelle San Juan starts with the traditions of the Noche de San Juan and blends them with Bad Bunny’s signature irreverence. Key features include:

  • Exclusive Suede Toe Cap: Adds a touch of luxury and exclusivity to the design.
  • Asymmetrical Toe Design: Remains consistent with previous versions, providing a unique and recognizable look.
  • Brown Gum Soles: Standard soles that feature a subtle adidas embossing.
  • Custom Branding: The words “adidas” and “San Juan” are printed above each other, with “San Juan” replacing the typical adidas hit.


The Drop

Mark your calendars! The Gazelle San Juan dropped on June 23, coinciding with both Noche and Dia de San Juan. These limited-edition kicks are available at all major retailers for $140 USD for adults.

Whether you’re a sneakerhead, a Bad Bunny fan, or someone who cherishes Puerto Rican culture, the Gazelle San Juan is a must-have addition to your collection.
