CLOT has officially announced its reunion with adidas over the weekend, and the rollout has been just as quick with a shock drop of their tripartite collboration with NEIGHBORHOOD. Together revamping the quintessence of the Three Stripes: the Superstar.
For this sneaker project, Clot’s co-founder Edison Chen reinterpreted the classic Superstar silhouette by using a black mesh material on the upper and updating the iconic shell toe with a suede panel at the forefoot. Clot and Neighborhood branding are also scattered throughout the sneaker, while an intricate zig-zag pattern appears on the bottom of the outsole with the outsole taking on a cream shade.
THE STORY OF THE ADIDAS FORUM
Whether it was because of their innovation, proven performance on the court, or their price of 100 dollars, the Forum was the fashion-crush for countless artists and/or references from all over the world such as Michael Jordan, who just positioned them as the silhouette of the 80s. We put the focus on their qualities and outstanding history.
First love never dies, and neither do the Forums. Their story began in 1983 in France. The designer Jacques Chassaing would be an essential player in both the outsider team of the 80s and the current one.
The ideologist thought of creating a basketball sport that would favor the whole team, keeping in mind the diversity of athletes, their different roles, and physical characteristics. Through conversations with coaches and players, he located the weak point in the ankle. He visualized the bands used by the psychotherapists to stabilize it and decided to integrate a stabilizing element into the shoe: the ‘criss-cross ankle system’, which embraces and protects the whole area.
