Bodega’s F&F Forum ’84 Colab Is an Ode to Boston Street Culture
The return of the adidas Forum ‘84 has certainly been welcomed with open arms in the sneaker community. We’ve seen the iconic silhouette elevate the latest IVY PARK x adidas ‘ICY PARK’ collection, and now Boston-based boutique Bodega have kept things close to home with their uber-limited Friends and Family collaboration.
Not straying too far from the OG colours, this collaboration makes use of neutral tones, with subtle blue and red accents throughout. A smooth suede is used for the ankle collar panelling, tongue backgrounds, and lateral Three Stripes branding, all dressed in the aforementioned blue shade. Meanwhile, the red pops hit on the Trefoil insignias, strap hardware, and first set of eyelets.
On the medial side, the Three Stripes are elevated with a distinct cheetah pattern, as well as some green towards the middle of the throat. Completing this collaborative ensemble is bold Bodega branding on the lateral heel in gold, while a one-of-one number out of 333 lands on the opposite side, denoting the number of pairs produced overall.
The limited pairs have been given out to influential members of the Boston community, as well as Bodega’s closest kin. Don’t expect a wider release anytime soon. Be sure to check out the boutique’s full feature blog post here.
