adidas Originals Fall 2009 “Color Pop” Forum Pack

Share Tweet Email Reddit Flipboard WhatsApp Comments

On its 1983 release, the adidas Forum was an instant classic. Whether you’re a fan of high, low or mid, the Velcro-strapped masterpiece allows plenty of space for personal preference when it comes to rocking a pair, and in recent years, the Forum has shifted from an expensive, aspirational design, to a staple shoe that’s a wardrobe must-have. Despite the intimidating mix of matter-of-fact looks and technical innovation, it’s versatile enough to carry bold colours, with a history of more offbeat colour blocking. This Mid and Lo duo is no exception, adding some reflective detailing for Forums with flair.

The hard-to-miss contrast between neutral tones and blasts of colour pop doesn’t drown out the trailblazing approach to panelling, fastening, padding and style that this sneaker has been generating for nearly 3 decades, but by adding a sophisticated, contemporary feel on both makeovers, it ensures it stays as relevant as ever.

The adidas Forum Mid and Forum Lo will be getting to stores soon. Take a more detailed look at both sneakers after the jump.
