The Adidas Forum Is Hands Down The Easiest Shoe To Style

Don’t believe me? Just watch.

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.

Don’t believe this sneaker can flow between the vibes and seamlessly tie together looks ranging from formal to streetwear? Just watch. Keep tapping for a variety of modern, casual, and chic thrifted looks, all styled with the OG Adidas Forum. Good luck not adding this classic shoe to you cart after that.

Streetwear was, and forever will be, an environment in which the Forum positively thrives. From the velcro strap to the instantly recognizable stripes, I don’t need to tell you how topping off your streetwear look with the Forum just feels right.

Never just a court shoe, the Forum is the pick for every type of player: the athlete, the TikTok star, or the fashion lover running to the next thrift store.

A world in which the Adidas Forum doesn’t pair just as well with athleisure as it does with a silky black slip dress on a night out just doesn’t feel right.

Add in just a few statement accessories and the Forum, and you have a look that mixes luxe with comfort, ensuring your night out only stops when you want it to.

Think of the Forum like a chameleon, effortless blending into daring and neutral looks alike, adapting to any print or pattern you throw at it. With trends emerging and fading at the drop of a hat, that kind of versatility is a necessity.

For a day out on the town, picnicking or restaurant-hopping with friends, count on the Forum to keep you — and your look — going and looking as fresh as when you stepped out the door.

Although the Forum complements modern looks as well as ever, the way it amplifies a casual, retro look is simply *chef’s kiss* — a testament to its truly timeless nature.

Despite being a statement all on its own, the Forum is undeniably an everyday outfit staple, a trusted piece of your sartorial arsenal you’ll want to reach for over and over again.
