Introduced in the 1980s, the adidas Forum was a sneaker for everyone. Many sub-cultures openly embraced the sneaker, turning the humble basketball sneaker into a fashion staple for decades to come. Its simple, full leather design meant it was adaptable to any outfit and offered unparalleled versatility and durability.
In celebration of the silhouette’s return in new iterations, adidas is hosting The Forum Show – a three-part series that encourages viewers to stay open to different perspectives and have conversations about pressing issues of the day — all in an effort to bring us closer in these socially distanced times.

Also, the low-top models now come with removable straps (so you don’t have to cut them off).
