NBA All-Star Weekend may be in the rearview mirror but Chicago’s creatives are still on a roll, and adidas Originals is saluting the Windy City’s continued energy with two new takes on the Forum. Consisting of a Forum Low designed by Fat Tiger Workshop‘s Vic Lloyd and a high-top Forum LDRS, both shoes proffer tonal palettes, premium materials and special branding.
Lloyd’s Forum Low offers a full suede upper that takes on a sweet orange sherbert tone. Debossed Trefoil logos are present on the lateral quarter, and a strap with cursive adidas text reaches across the tongue. When unstrapped or removed, this reveals a unique full-color “Chicago Works Harder/Chicago Plays Harder” graphic with a basketball in a milk crate on the tongue tag. This same motif is replicated on the insole, and an icy orange midsole/outsole complete the look.
Meanwhile, the high-top Forum is made of a butter-soft light brown leather. Special gold foil adidas stamps on the lateral quarter and tongue combine a Trefoil, globe, crown, laurel wreath and Forum spellout logo for a regal touch of flair. Leather collars ensure premium comfort, and a small pop of orange appears under the ball of the foot on the outsole.
The Vic Lloyd x adidas Forum Low and adidas Forum LDRS are both available now on the adidas webstore, with the Low priced at $100 USD and the high-top iteration retailing for $120 USD.
