Back in December 2020, adidas Skateboarding and global team rider Heitor da Silva turned the Jacques Chassaing-designed Forum basketball sneaker into a skate-ready pair, and now the style is becoming a new mainstay in the Three Stripes’ roster.

Served in “Chalk White” or “Black” colorways, the adidas Skateboarding Forum 84 ADV combines the quintessential basketball design cues with all the necessary elements of a functional skateboarding sneaker. As such, you’ll find the heritage model updated with a modern cupsole, luxe leather and suede upper application, and a double-layered toe cap that should ensure less visible signs of wear and tear on the suede front.

The EVA midsole is made from a higher grade material to ensure even more durability, comfort and protection, while an adiPRENE molded sock liner offers continuous support inside. Rounding out both pairs are classic details all around the shoe, for example seeing them both fitted with a gum-hued outsole, debossed Trefoil logos on the lateral mid-panel, and contrasting leather Three Stripes that are finished with a zig-zag cut.

Both adidas Skateboarding Forum 84 ADV colorways are set to release on the adidas website and at select skate retailers worldwide on March 25, costing $100 USD a pair. Take a closer look at them above.

In other news, Y-3 has dropped its 4D IO in “Triple Black.”
