As the adidas Forum ’84 Hi continues to infiltrate the mainstream consciousness, it’s surfaced in a healthy mix of old school-inspired and modern-day takes. Its latest ensemble unquestionably looks to decades coming for inspiration.
The high-quality leather upper is clad in varying shades of white, with the majority of the base boasting an “aged” aesthetic. Profile 3-Stripes, collar paneling and reinforcement around the heel deviate in both color and material (green suede and corduroy take over the spotlight). Branding at the lateral heel, medial mid-foot and tongue label deviate in a red that helps harken back to team colors of the 1980s. Non-standard logos on the spine and tongue label nod to the adidas Originals model’s debut year as well as basketball heritage. Underfoot, a slightly-yellowed midsole works in-tandem with a light gum brown outsole for a vintage look that’s refreshing in today’s landscape of high-tech trainers.
An official adidas.com release date hasn’t been disclosed, but this high-top Forum is likely to drop by autumn. In the meantime, enjoy images of the pair ahead.
