In the 80’s, you either wore the Forum or the Adidas Shell-Toe. The Shell-Toe took off but the Forum, was just as sought after, but much harder to come by. The legendary Forum, originally released in 1984, came in both low top and high top versions. At a price tag of $100, it was a big deal to have a pair, with most pairs worn by hoop stars, pro athletes, and entertainers across the world.
Well, over the past few weeks, Sneaker Politics and Adidas have collaborated to bring us this highly sought after sneaker, free of charge and each numbered, 1 to 500. With a super clean white upper, a hint of blue added by Sneaker Politics, and added branding other than the Three Stripes, these are as clean as the 80’s version and definitely gives off the vintage 80’s vibe. Pairs were given to influencers, NBA stars, as well as sneaker guru, Langston Galloway, famed rapper Bun B, and many others. A huge event was held in each city that houses a Politics store, for fans and faithful customers to come out, have a great time, and cop the clean, exclusive sneaker.
Sneaker Politics has had collaborations with various brands. Each always leaves you wanting more and the party keeps getting bigger and bigger. So the question is, what collab can we expect next?
