The Forum is a historic shoe for adidas. It was the company’s first basketball sneaker to be offered in low, mid and hi top models. The adidas Forum has a leather upper, a trefoil logo on the tongue and the iconic strap. Jacques Chassaing designed the adidas Forum.

Skaters and designers have allowed the Forum to transition from the basketball court to an everyday casual shoe. Celebrities and influencers have helped the adidas Forum stay relevant for almost 40 years now. The Forum has become a legend of street culture. It has been the focus of numerous collaborations over the years, including a 2022 collaboration with Shoe Palace.
