Kids from the 90s will fondly remember the antics of Kevin McCallister in comedy flick Home Alone. Well those memorable moments are further being immortalised in an upcoming adidas Forum that is inspired by Macaulay Culkin’s lead character.
The references begin with the white and red colourway of this Forum, whereby McCallister wore a similar adidas shoe in the same stripes. Looking deeper at the details, extra materials are used across the upper, such as corduroy mid sections and canvas on the strap – the latter of which suggests there may be a tearaway component. More overt nods to McCallister's mischief include explosive crater graphics and faux stitch repairs, while more homely callbacks to the house are found on the fuzzy doormat textured tongue label and M branded ‘doorknob’ heel jewel.
Furthermore, the Home Alone connection is made clear with the franchise house logo displayed on the lateral side of the Forums, while interchangeable insoles displaying stills from the movie are included. After all, who doesn’t want to step all over Joe Pesci and Daniel Stern’s Harry and Marv?
Keep an eye out for the Home Alone x adidas Forum to land in coming months. Coincidentally, Disney are trying to revive the franchise with Home Sweet Home Alone and have just released the trailer for it. However, those aforementioned 90s kids will likely be disappointed to learn that Macaulay Culkin is in no way involved with this reboot.
Hey y'all. Just a heads up since I've been getting this question a lot today:— Macaulay Culkin (@IncredibleCulk) October 13, 2021
I am NOT in the new Home Alone reboot.
I wish all involved the best of luck though.
