This classic Adidas hoop shoe has a plethora of make-ups to its name. This release gets rid of the materials usually associated with the Forum and gives way to a modern twist that sees the performance and comfort levels get taken up a notch.
Mesh seems to be responsible for a new wave of basketball performance shoes which seem to be getting more unique and technical by the year. Using a full mesh upper on the forum actually looks decent, with the aesthetic of the silhouette still in full effect, and it’s an application that makes this shoe more lightweight. The underlays of black, red and blue work subtly to carve out the panels and branding and also accent the white nicely. The mesh make over doesn’t take the Forum into modern performance territory but it’s bound to make daily wear that bit more comfy.
Available for pre-order from Crooked Tongues now.
