A retro top-down view: The upper on this sneaker is directly lifted from the Forum Lows. You can the same layered leather upper and Velcro strap for lockdown.

Difference is in the midsole: The biggest difference is in the midsole, which now comes with a full-length Boost cushioning. The encased forefoot matched with exposed heel mirrors most modern Adidas b-ball kicks – offering the right mix of cushioning and responsiveness.

Branding is minimal with the “Gears for futuristic teenagers” script on the heel and the Human Made heart logo on the lateral side of the heel.

Sole swapped: For this collection, Nigo have the Adidas Country a sole swap, transferring its suede and leather upper onto to a Solar Boost-like midsole.
