Adidas Reimagines a Classic '80s Sneaker With Fresh Colors and Updated Silhouettes
Say hello to the newest line of Forum sneakers!
(SPOT.ph) No doubt you're familiar with classic Adidas sneakers like the Stan Smith, the Continental 80, and the Superstar. Another one to add to your collection is the beloved Forum Sneaker. The diehard sneakerheads out there likely already know about the decades-old pair, but casual sportswear fans may be less likely to recognize it. First introduced in 1984 as a basketball shoe designed to cater to a wide variety of physical characteristics and athletics needs, the pair has remained a popular pick in the years since its original release, though now known as more of a lifestyle shoe than a sport sneaker. Despite its evolution in the eyes of pop culture, the Forum continues to be a symbol of diversity and artistic expression in the sneaker world. To celebrate its history and timeless appeal, Adidas just unveiled a new line of Forum sneakers for their Fall/Winter 2021 Collection!
The OG Forum sports a sleek but supportive silhouette and just-thick-enough rubber outsole with a subtle toothed texture underneath. Its most defining feature is its distinctive strap across the ankle. Adidas has reimagined the ‘80s-era style with more modern colorways and construction that both honor the heritage and give it a fresh new look. They unveiled three new pairs.
Feast your eyes on the brand-new Adidas Forum Sneakers under the Fall/Winter 2021 Collection:
The Forum Exhibit Low Shoes features all the sneaker’s classic elements, made more low profile and finished off with red and navy blue accents. The timeless but eye-catching colorway makes for a versatile pair that also boasts lots of standout power.
For a bolder, high-top option, check out the Forum Exhibit Mid Shoes, which sport a bulkier, mid-cut silhouette. The distinctive build is finished off with striking black details. The bold black tone contrasts against the soft teal hue seen on the Three Stripes logo on the outer side as well as the light gray shades around the middle portion of the shoe.
The Forum Low Shoes pay homage to the OG sneaker's basketball roots with red, blue, and yellow accents against a pristine white exterior—a colorway inspired by the sport. The stark white strap up top stands out against the vibrant tones, giving emphasis to the pair's signature silhouette.
