size? is remembering the legendary “Dentist Chair” celebration pulled by Paul Gascoigne during the Euro ‘96 game between England and Scotland with an exclusive pair of adidas Originals Gazelle Vintage sneakers.

The pair, aptly dubbed “Dentist Chair,” pays homage to a stunt Gazza performed when he scored against Scotland, putting England 2-0 up. Prior to the game, members of the England squad hit British tabloid newspaper headlines for drinking copious amounts in a bar in Hong Kong using the “Dentist Chair” approach, in which bar staff pour alcohol down someone’s throat.

In a similar fashion, Gazza scored and celebrated by having his teammates Jamie Redknapp, Alan Shearer, Steve McManaman, and Teddy Sheringham squirt water onto his face as he laid on the floor.

size? is remembering this moment with its adidas Originals Gazelle Vintage, covering the pair in white and blue leather to match the England’s team football kits of the time. There’s plenty of signature adidas design tropes, such as gold-toned foil branding on the lateral, a trefoil logo on the yellow tongue tab, and a gum sole unit to boot — but there’s another nod to Gazza, too, with the insoles sporting a depiction of the memorable “Dentist Chair” moment.

Take a look at the size? exclusive adidas Originals Gazelle Vintage “Dentist Chair” in the gallery above, and expect a release to come sometime soon at size? stores and online.

In case you missed it, here is all of the size? exclusive sneakers expected to release this year.
