The adidas Originals Forum Low revisited by WOOD WOOD

-
Andrea Tuzio

The origin story of the adidas Originals Forum Low is inextricably linked to basketball.
Released in 1984 at the Los Angeles Olympic Games, the Forum Low-and by far the adidas Forum-is one of the most iconic and successful silhouettes the German sportswear giant has ever conceived.
Today, WOOD WOOD co-founder Brian SS Jensen, on the occasion of the brand’s 20th anniversary, wanted to turn the tables and make a new version of the adidas Originals Forum Low.
An update of the low-top silhouette to take it from the basketball court to the tennis court, changing some details but fully respecting its essence.

Jensen eliminated the Velcro closure and opted for a simple lace-up closure to make it aesthetically closer to typical sneaker silhouettes.
With a contrasting gum sole, the shoe retains its signature soft leather upper, perforated toe box and mesh tongue, with Three Stripes suede on the side sides.
As for colorways, Jensen has opted for 80s-flavored hues in homage to the sneaker’s very debut: expect electric blue, mustard yellow, and burnt orange Three Stripes variants.

The adidas Originals Forum Low by WOOD WOOD will be available starting tomorrow, July 13 in all WOOD WOOD stores and on woodwood.com before the global release scheduled for July 21.
