Earlier this fall, the adidas Forum ‘84 Low was reworked by footwear retailers Sneaker Politics and Footpatrol for a duo of projects, and now the silhouette is thrusting in one more collaboration before 2020 comes to a close. Up next is a partnership between adidas Skateboarding and global team rider Heitor da Silva that involves the classic hoops-ready model being reimagined for kick-push activities.

The base layer, comprised of both smooth and tumbled leathers, effectively portrays a regal color story. The overlays present along the mid-foot, heel and forefoot are dialed to an eggplant-esque hue, and come offset by bright white complements that are visible on the toe boxes, mesh tongues, in between the black-coated lateral/medial stripes and towards the heel. On top of that, the sock liners usher in more purple accents but differentiate with a slightly faded skin. Tongues are emblazoned with da Silva’s namesake spelled out in gold, cursive font. Riding down under, midsoles are designed with a natural white complexion and finished off with a gum outsole.

When speaking on the design inspiration behind this collaboration, da Silva stated, “I skated in the adidas Originals Forum a few years ago and loved them. I love classic basketball shoes for the look, durability and comfort…happy I got to be a part of bringing the Forum back, especially for skateboarding.”

The Heitor da Silva x adidas Skateboarding Forum ‘84 ADV will be launching on December 5th for $100 USD on adidas and via select skateboarding retailers.

Elsewhere in the realm of kicks, the Noah x adidas Gazelle collaboration has been unveiled.
