Sneaker Politics and adidas Originals have teamed up to relaunch the classic Forum with a special giveaway event. First released in 1984 with high and low top styles, the Forum made history with its then-unheard of $100 USD price tag — which, adjusted for inflation, translates to roughly $250 USD in 2020 dollars. However, it’s set to be entirely free for its inaugural 2020 return.
Besides dressing the revitalized Forum in a clean white leather makeup with blue and gray suede accents — plus special Politics hits and an individually numbered detail — Sneaker Politics is introducing a charity aspect into the shoe’s revival. Full details have yet to be announced, but Sneaker Politics will be partnering with other locally owned businesses in New Orleans, Lafayette, Baton Rouge, Austin and Dallas to give all 500 pairs away.
Keep an eye on Sneaker Politics’ social channels for further information on the giveaway, and for more footwear news take an on-foot look at two new colorways of the adidas YEEZY BOOST 380: “Calcite Glow” and “Onyx.”
