Throughout the adidas Forum’s mainstream revival, the silhouette has emerged in classic NBA team colors to nod to its heyday as a staple on the hardwood. For its latest ensemble, the model’s ’84 Low trim has indulged in Phoenix Suns-friendly tones, likely a result of the team’s appearance in the 2020-21 NBA Finals.
Akin to other propositions that’ve surfaced throughout the last seven months, the upcoming sneaker boasts premium leather in shades of white across the upper. Profile 3-Stripes and collar lining deviate from the muted makeup in favor of rich purple (the former indulge in a suede construction). Stability components around the heel complement the historically-regal tone with their vibrant orange, creating a combination appropriate of an association with “The Valley” title contenders. Midsoles and tread further opt into an aesthetic that harkens back to the adidas Originals model’s debut year via their off-white and light gum brown looks, respectively. Lastly, retro-like “84” branding appear on the tongue label, sock-liner and heel.
Enjoy official images of the pair ahead, and anticipate a stateside adidas.com launch before summer ends.
