Whoville’s infamous furry, grumpy, and green character from the Dr. Seuss franchise, The Grinch, headlines this three-pack adidas Forum Low collaboration following its first appearance in the previous year. Joining the Christmas-hating grouch in the pack is his pet dog, Max, and the little girl, Cindy-Lou Who. Dropping ahead of Christmas, The Grinch x adidas Forum Low “Cream Slime” equips the classic ‘80s silhouette with special-edition details that neatly resonate with the authentic holiday spirit.
This colourway of the ‘84 basketball shoe shares similarities with the Home Alone collaboration in late 2021, clad in a cream white leather base with red accents encompassing the signature 3-Stripes. Furry green accents and a face portrait of the titular character engulf the tongue. Elsewhere, a darker olive green hue covers the inner lining and the adidas Trefoil logo on the lateral panel. Meanwhile, the ankle strap has a volt green adidas label. The Grinch graphics appears on the sockliner and lace dubraes. Rounding out the design is the vibrant volt green outsole flaunting a red pivot point, befitting the holiday season’s signature colours. The packaging includes extra sets of green and red laces, additional The Grinch branded sockliners, an adidas-branded Christmas ball, and a special-edition shoebox.
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.
