The iconic Adidas Forum goes way back — to 1984, specifically. This timeless silhouette was originally developed as Michael Jordan’s shoes for the basketball court. Since then, the Forum’s popularity has naturally ebbed and flowed with the decades, remaining a core staple in Adidas’ history. But despite its age, the Forum hasn’t lost one ounce of its styling potential. In fact, the silhouette has only gotten better with time.
In 2021 and beyond, it’s clear what’s old is new again if the younger generation’s fervent love of thrifting and of unearthing the past is any indication. Now, Adidas is returning to its roots, resurrecting the Forum in myriad variations to show just how classic and versatile this shoe is. What may seem like a regular sneaker is chock-full of history, comfort, and sartorial edge that takes any look to the next level.
