Despite its prominence throughout the 2020s thus far, the adidas Forum’s true excellence comes from the ’80s. Once a dominating silhouette on the hardwood, the Forum High shined on the court with its stabilizing crisscross strap. Now, it has seen a resurgence in its many variants as a versatile staple in adidas Originals’ footwear lineup.
Dubbed the adidas Forum 84 High, this version of the sneaker is a true homage to the OG Forum that supported basketball players around the world. In its last release before the year’s end, adidas has outfitted the shoe in a “Team Dark Green” that combines its titular hue with shades of off-white to create a vintage feel. Its design begins with a premium leather upper base that is joined by suede at its Three Stripes and heel counter. At the lateral’s midfoot, the adidas Originals logo is stamped in gold. Elsewhere, its top strap wraps over the laces which come in a darker off-white that simulates an aged effect, completing this throwback look.
Available now, the adidas Forum 84 High “Team Dark Green” can be purchased via adidas and select retailers at a price of $130 USD. Act fast as sizes have already begun to sell out.
