@Bubblegum Tate these forum lows new?? Didnít realize they were coming with more after the hector pair
[close]

I think it was Watson? who said there were more colors after the Heitor color way coming out.
[close]
adidas is really pushing the forum in general. Bodega just had a F&F numbered pair, SNS colorway, Beyoncť ivy lark (?), giving it the full treatment

Are they actually retooled for skating like dunks vs sb dunks or is it just a regular forum remarketed to skating

First released in 1984, the Forum shoe was originally purposed as a basketball shoe, but this latest version includes plenty of performance upgrades designed specifically for skateboarding. The shoe features a premium leather upper with a double-layered toe cap for added durability while da Silva's name is featured on the mesh tongue. The upgrades from the OG continue to the sole with EVA foam on the midsole for impact protection and a grippy gum sole for foot stability on the board.

"I skated in the Adidas Originals Forum a few years ago and loved them. I love classic basketball shoes for the look, durability and comfort," da Silva says. "The design process was fun and surreal—so happy I got to be a part of bringing the Forum back, especially for skateboarding."

Those Forums look really good, wish the toe cap was full leather like the rest of the shoe and Heitor's. Hopefully this is a full run and they'll keep it in the lineup now.

^ those are seriously fugly. Straight up Balenciaga rip offs, which are in their own right atrocious as hell. I've been going through some serious shoe madness over the past 2 months and cannot for the life of me find a golden shoe to stick with, but I'm done with the core brands,prime example up there why.
If u havenít tried the tyshawns I would highly recommend

I have 2 pairs of NB# coming in the next 2 days, the 1010 and 440Hi. If I don't like either of those, I'll sure be trying the Tyshawns next. Read nothing but good things from a couple different threads on here about them.

440hi is the best shoe I have ever skated. super comfortable and very durable.

On the other hand I really disliked the Tyshawns. Gave me blisters in the midsole area and the insole did not fit properly in the shoe. Also I thought the board feel was terrible. That might be because I stopped skating them before they really broke in due to the midsole blisters.

We all know the best …s era was when they had Mike Anderson and Bobby Worrest on the team.

Raymond Molinar and Danny Garcia were on at that time too. And mccrank and Silas. Just a whole damn team of style gods.

Yeah I mixed up. Civil actually seems like a solid shop! One of the guys reached out to me even and asked where I had felt they had upcharged and I totally mixed them up for some other shop.


Anybody had the forum low adv in hand/on foot? Curious if this could be a proper dunk replacement for me.

I really want to pull the trigger on them as well since the Heitor was almost impossible to get when it released. I've looked at reviews of normal Forum 84 and people have said they were like a premium AJ1/Dunk.

Edit: Quick comparison of the two. Definitely gives off a dunk vibe, plus Forum did come out a year before the dunk was introduced so maybe these are worth getting. Very tempting after seeing them side by side.

I know everyone gets nostalgic about Menikmati era or PJ's era, but that tail end with Mike and Bobby is honestly my favorite phase of eS. Blows my mind that they axed these people and cried wolf only to relaunch with Kelly fucking Hart as the face of the company. Yeah, they've got Wade Desarmo and Tom Asta, but how are we gonna advertise these shoes? How about Kelly Hart doing a flatground 360 flip. TJ Rogers is flow and putting out great parts? Nah, there's no room on the team, cuz we got Kelly Hart.




god I fucking hate eS.

i think the lamest move on eS part was never pulling kelly hart on fully when he was in LRG/EXP days..  but yeah crazy team they had before they axed the program... came back with no team for nearly a year and then added kelly hart/ wade d and tom asta and SLAPs fave Shmatty

TJ Rogers not being on is insane. Not because Iím super stoked on his footage but because heís putting a lot out. I feel like that would get a lot of kids and potentially parents buying shoes.

Also, give Wade a pro model for fuckís sake.

Completely agree. I dig the shoes, but until they actually invest in skateboarding the way that other companies do, then I know they're just trying to pump us by riding a short term nostalgia wave.

My main question about them is how is the level of padding. That is one of the things I love about dunks is the perfect level of puffiness. Hopefully I'll be able to see some of the forums in person. For me nothing can surpass my love for dunks, but this may be the best alternative feel and looks wise

I have the Heitor forum 84 and tbh Iím not a huge fan of how they feel. I think this new update of the forum looks better and more accurate to the archive but it feels worse on foot. Itís a bit stiff and heavy, also Itís super flat and feels a bit loose on my skinny foot. Kinda mad that the strap was removed from the skate version too (Could have been removable instead of ditching it altogether).
Anyway I wasnít gonna skate them, and still love the look.

These forums look nice. I donít want them to feel Ďbroken in outta the boxí. Iím looking for that takes forever to break in, foot protector shit. Foot clubs. Fuck board feel.
But yeah they look very skate friendly. Kinda surprised it took the stripes so long to bring these about.

^ ^ big ups on the impressions for the Forums. Being that you said they feel super flat is a no buy for me. I learned my lesson wearing too many flat unsupporting shoes. But the big/heavy/stiff is always a plus in my book. My search continues.

More comparable to AF1s than Dunks?

They aren't as thick as Air Forces... Thickness is probably closer to the Dunk, maybe is the thick leather on the Heitor version that also makes them quite stiff. I only wore them a handful times, so not a lot of time to break it in tbh.

Actually a shoe that people sleep on is the Top Ten. That one feels so good to skate! Flexible and Grippy. Just some glue on the seams and its great... Surprised there is not a skate version yet (Na-kel has been skating them for a bit).
