adidas has brought a flurry of sneaker collaborations to life in the past year, and one partnership that caught the eyes of many sneakerheads across the world was its link-up with South Park. The American sitcom has joined forces with the German athletic company on several renditions thus far, and now they’ll be expanding their catalog with a Forum Low that’s inspired by Cartman’s AWESOM-O robot.

The AWESOM-O robot made its on-screen debut in the Comedy Central series’ eighth season during episode five. It was a costume disguise crafted by the ever comical Eric Cartman so that he could use it to trick Butters into telling him secrets. To mimic this get-up, the Three Stripes covers the uppers in a cardboard-esque brown while silver dons the heels and notes of yellow, red and purple arrive in striped fashion across the bottoms of the throat to translate his robotic details. The tongue’s customary branding has been traded out for graphics of his face, while the strap has been ornamented with an “A.W.E.S.O.M.-O” notation. The shoe box also plays into the South Park theme as it features imagery of the robot along with Professor Chaos.

Peep a further look at the pair above and note that these are likely dropping on March 21 for $110 USD via adidas.

Elsewhere in footwear, Kanye’s adidas YEEZY 700 V3 “Mono Safflower” has received a release date.
