Brand: Jeremy Scott x adidas
Model: Forum Wings 1.0 "Money"
Release Date: August 24
What We’re Saying: "Crazy in Love" is playing on the radio, you're wearing cargo pants, a Von Dutch trucker hat, and most likely a pair of Jeremy Scott x adidas kicks. That was 2003, but it seems time really is a flat circle, because the designer is once again back working with the Three Stripes and more wild designs are on their way.
adidas Originals and Jeremy Scott were responsible for some of the most out-there collaborations at the time. Who could forget the iconic "Teddy Bears", or the Swarovski-coated "J-Wings," and of course, the partnership with A$AP Rocky? The iconic collaboration lasted for multiple years, before coming to an end in 2015, after multiple tongue-in-cheek footwear and apparel collections.
Now the two brands are back to resurrect the partnership, starting with Jeremy Scott's take on the adidas Forum silhouette. “Partnering again with adidas feels like a homecoming and I’m thrilled to be home!” said the designer.
The first look at the collaboration features the Forum High silhouette coated in faux $100 bills (with Scott himself at the center of the bill, of course), finished off with the collaboration's signature wings attached to the lacing. The usage of Benjamins is a reference to the Forum's original retail price in 1984, a cool $100.
Of course, this release takes inspiration from the two's Forum Money 1.0 (2003) and the JS Wings 2.0 (2013), which featured another money-printed basketball shoe.
This is only the first Jeremy Scott x adidas item to launch from the duo's rebirthed partnership, which will continue to yield new goods throughout September.
