This adidas Forum Gets Inspired by Chinese PrintingRelease: 9 January 2021
The lead up to Chinese New Year always sees brands within the sneaker space come through with commemorative creps, and adidas are seriously pushing the boundaries this year. A few weeks back, we got a look at their UltraBOOST DNA, which was inspired by the traditional Lion Dance, now they’ve just debuted a Forum Mid dubbed the ‘Communicator’, taking inspiration from the Chinese invention of printing.
Looking at the build, The Three Stripes have opted for a mix of suede, canvas and leathers, composed in white with loud pops of red highlighting the key features. The highlight of the model would have to be the removable parts, which give the wearer the ability customise a one-of-one look. This creative inclusion represents the printing process invented many years ago by the Chinese.
If you’re already in the Chinese New Year spirit, then head to adidas’ webstore on January 9, where they’ll be dropping in select countries like Japan.
