Take a good look at the adidas Originals Forum, because this silhouette is going nowhere as we step into 2021. Following collaborations with sivasdescalzo on the high top and Heitor da Silva on the low, the archival basketball sneaker is soon set for a return in its OG form, re-introducing the Forum 84 High “Off White/Blue/Footwear White.”

The OG colorway has been applied all over the sneaker alongside a vintage treatment that makes the silhouette look as if it’s come straight out of 1984. Where you’d typically find clean white leather, the upper now sports an “Off White” hue that’s trimmed with yellowed exposed foam. This is joined by “Blue” suede Three Stripe branding on the mid-panel, tumbled “Blue” leather on the collar, and more of the same suede on the collar and heel to boot.

Cream laces further add to the aged look, as does the tongue which is served in “Footwear White,” but thanks to its nylon construction the tongue looks vintage and slightly shimmery. Rounding out the pair is an “Off White” sole unit, retro adidas Trefoil branding on the tongue tag, medial mid-panel, and midsole, and a desaturated “Blue” sock liner, once more making this pair look pre-worn.

Take a look at the adidas Originals Forum 84 High in “Off White/Blue/Footwear White” above, and pick up a pair from retailers such as Asphalt Gold on December 22 for €129 EUR (approx. $157 USD).
