Jeremy Scott and adidas Return with Colourful 'DIP' CollectionRelease: 2 October 2021
Jeremy Scott and adidas are back in business. After announcing the reignition of their partnership in June and releasing the Forum Hi Wings 'Money' in August, designer and footwear brand have readied a five-style 'DIP' collection centred around colourful iterations of the Forum Hi and Forum Low, plus a teddy bear-adorned adilette slide that's not for the faint of heart.
'Blue' and 'Signal Orange' are the colours chosen for the Forum Hi while the Forum Low takes on 'Solar Pink' and 'Solar Yellow' shades. The first duo offers a towering cut while the second pairing provides more trim style, but all four utilise a glossy, fluorescent finish that looks like it was cast from porcelain. There's also classic collar straps and a tongue-tag portrait of Scott on each pair.
The adilette slide is the wildest of the bunch, calling back to the designer's early 2010s collaborations with the Three Stripes by placing a full-sized fuzzy bear head on its strap. A Scott signature, this grinning bear is done up in orange and yellow and serves as a crown atop the slide's fuzzy yellow strap and moulded EVA footbed.
"I feel like people need to have a little more fun with their footwear. I reckon that some of the things that people won’t do upstairs, they’ll do downstairs. Like the Teddy Bears," Scott mused to Sneaker Freaker in 2011 when his animal-adorned styles were taking the world of footwear by storm. "As crazy an idea as [the Teddy Bear] was, and as crazy an image as it was, [the Teddy Bear] is my best selling shoe today."
Expect the Jeremy Scott x adidas 'DIP' collection to release via the adidas webstore, the CONFIRMED app and adidas stockists on October 2. All four Forums are priced at $160, while the adilette slides in at $80.
