Footpatrol Welcomes Back the adidas Forum in Style
The adidas Forum first released back in 1984 with the then-unheard-of $100 retail price, making it a status symbol worn by pro athletes and entertainers the world over. In both high- and low-top versions, the Forum has now become a genuine classic within the adidas archive. Welcoming it back into the spotlight, adidas recently teamed up with Beyonce and Sneaker Politics to craft their own uber-limited versions of the icon. And now, European retailer Footpatrol have also stepped into the conversation, honouring the silhouette with a stylish new makeover plus charitable contributions.
Taking inspirational cues from interior design, the crew at Footpatrol crafted the Forum in a very subtle but intricate build, using a slew of different leathers and suedes. The low-top silhouette has its uppers constructed using hairy, medium nap suede mixed with pigskin nubuck opting for two different tones. Luxury touches include leather pops and metallic silver fore-foot detail. ‘Footpatrol’ and ‘Family’ lay on the ankle straps in gold, with another hit of branding along the lateral.
An ultra-limited release, there will only be 300 pairs of the Footpatrol x adidas Forum Low releasing worldwide, and each will be individually numbered. They’ve also included two sets of insoles, with one boasting the signatures of Footpatrol’s staff.
Coinciding with the release, Footpatrol have handpicked three London-based creatives to share their stories and create content around the highly-anticipated drop. A charitable element is also in play, with all the proceeds donated to The House of St Barnabas, which looks to support individuals affected by homelessness.
Keep an eye on the Footpatrol blog, the creps will be available via a raffle on their website very soon!
