Dropping in a couple of days, here is an official look at the Hebru Brantley x adidas Forum Collection.
In true Hebru Brantley fashion, authentic storytelling is an integral part of this collaboration between Hebru Brantley and adidas. The Hebru Brantley x adidas Forum Collection will include the Forum Low and Forum High inspired by Brantley’s characters Frogboy and Rocket, which were created to express a desire for freedom, a stance in solidarity and a determination to overcome.
This collective spirit to redefine what a protagonist looks like in our world is the very inspiration for the characters that Brantley creates. They inspired us to collaborate on a collection that will stand firmly in the zeitgeist and ground us in the confidence, agency and power that has always reflected the culture that inspired it.
The esteemed artist uses the adidas Forum High and Forum Low as his muses, bringing them to life with tongue details featuring his Frogboy and Rocket characters to dimensionalize his storytelling of Black heroes and futurism. The shoes are executed in tones from Brantley’s signature color palette, and also feature contrast lacing, hand-drawn rear quarter trefoil branding and illustrated sock liners.
Retailing for $130 and $140, look for the Hebru Brantley x adidas Forum Collection to release on July 14th at select retailers and adidas.com.
