Editor's Notes: If your current sneaker rotation's been gathering dust, looking for something new to buddy up with, wishing you'd secured the ASAP Rocky-certified Prada x adidas Forum Lows when you had the chance, perhaps your redemption has arrived.
Some sneaker silhouettes; the Nike Air Force 1, for example – are eternal. Whether or not you'd bolster your own collection with them, it's hard to imagine a world in which they've vanished into obscurity. Silhouettes such as these, like the adidas Forum 84 Hi, are easy-wearing, come with classic constructions, and are near-impossible to render incorrectly.
As such, you can never go wrong with picking up a pair of your own. Of course, Prada's efforts with the silhouette (both high and low) are a special case; it's not often that one of fashion's leading brands elevates an OG sneaker with perfect execution.
Though those pairs might have been the Forum at its peak, Packer's three-strong pack of edits should be considered far more than a consolation prize – it's another knock out of the park.
The assortment of pairs excels by keeping things simple; premium tumbled and smooth leather, suede, varsity color schemes of "Collegiate Navy," "Collegiate Green," and "Collegiate Maroon" make for timeless aesthetics.
You snooze, you lose – and this triple threat isn't one to be underestimated.
