adidas Originals Celebrates Change and Self-Expression With The New Forum

Read Time: 2 minutes

The Forum collection is a nod to the 80s and is reimagined the same way but different



Now more than ever, we’re looking forward to tomorrow. One where we change is the norm and experimentation is welcome. adidas Originals celebrates just that with the reimagined Forum silhouette. It might be easier to surrender to our circumstances than to embrace them. But adidas encourages us to look forward to the future with openness. If there’s anything we’ve learned from the history of the iconic shoe, it continues to be, well, iconic decades after it was first introduced to the market. And that’s thanks to those who embrace a world of unknowns.

Today, the adidas Forum symbolizes self-expression well beyond its roots in basketball. It stands out on the feet of creatives, community organizers, musicians and more. So it comes as no surprise that this season’s Forum campaign stars British rapper Slowthai and Filipino-British singer-songwriter Beabadobee.

Borrowing from the 80s, the new Forum is reinterpreted in three distinct looks that still draw on the silhouette’s rich heritage. 


The Forum Exhibit Low

This pared-down shoe features the sneaker’s classic elements matched with removable straps. It also features a white leather upper with accents of red and blue, as well as a court-ready rubber outsole. Wear it with comfy loungewear, a tracksuit, a suit set—or whatever you like.


The Forum Exhibit Mid

The Exhibit Mid takes a similar approach to design but in a mid-cut silhouette this time and is available in a striking colorway of white, black and pastel blue.


The Forum Low

Rounding out the collection is the Forum Low, which takes the classic look up a notch with a basketball inspired palette of white, navy, red and yellow.

Looking for more of the same but different? We know what you mean. adidas Originals reintroduces updated versions of the Forum Mid and the Forum Low in quintessential white and blue.
