From the ground up

Here comes the last sneaker of the adidas Originals Five-Two 3 Project Brands Pack – a collaboration with New York’s Nom de Guerre brand. They worked on the Forum Mid and gave it a stunning timeless design. Even though already previewed last week, we give you more views and information on the sneaker today, after already showing you the collaborations with Stone Island, Maharishi, XLarge and Porter.

Nom de Guerre’s Forum builds on the revolutionary basketball shoe’s hardwearing ankle straps and heel support made for hard landings, revising the shoe using the United States Military jungle boot as an inspiration prototype. Next, Nom de Guerre reworked the Forum’s ankle strap to reference war hospital ankle bandaging.

Additionally, the colours on the sole of the shoe serves as a reminder of the many hours of target practice accrued during training. The byproduct of these elements is an extremely versatile shoe designed to accommodate a range of climates while providing critical protection over various terrain.

Detailed images of the adidas Originals x Nom de Guerre Forum Mid follow after the jump.
