adidas Applies a Vintage Finish to the OG Forum Hi 84
There’s been a strong push for retro 80s hoops shoes of late, with the evergreen Air Jordan 1 joined in demand by the likes of the Nike Dunk and the recently-reissued New Balance 550. For adidas, after a few moments with the Top Ten, their focus has seemingly shifted to the Forum. In support of the revival, the Three Stripes has enlisted the help from the likes of Beyonce and global retailers like BSTN and SVD — but for OG fans of the era, there’s nothing quite like the original — in this case, inspired by the original.
Taking the OG White/Blue colorway from 1984, adidas has adjusted the construction for an aged-look effect — and we’re not mad about it. White leathers are replaced by one donning an off-white tint. Hamming up the aesthetic, it also arrives with rough-cut tan edging, while midfoot Three Stripes and rear guard and ankle overlays are swapped from leather to suede. A sail lace swap and tinted midsoles complete the heritage vibe.
Fans of the classic hoops shoe can pick these up from December 22nd from select stores and adidas.com around the globe — but if you are out here in Australia, you can scoop up pairs right now, right here from adidas AU for $200 AUD ($120 USD)
