The north of England has always been a stronghold for Adidas diehards. It's one of the rare things that can spur agreement from Goodison Park and Anfield, across the Pennines to Maine Road and Old Trafford, all the way to Elland Road. It makes perfect sense that an out of the ordinary, luxe version of an Adidas classic should originate there.
Leeds based tanners Charles F. Stead have been drafted in to ply their trade on a special edition of the Forum Hi. The head turning, mid-80s, basketball silhouette has been rendered in a grey, tonal suede, while a leather wrapped Bounce midsole accentuates the luxe aesthetic. The special nature of the Forum 'Crafted' carries over to the packaging, with nylon and leather lace options and a full leather cleaning kit.
