Original Story (03/04/21): If we’ve learned anything about Bad Bunny since his skyrocket to stardom, it’s that his fans will gladly take what he has to give. El Conejo Malo and adidas are bringing the Forum out of the reserves and into the spotlight with a brown and tan colorway.
As we saw with his partnership with Crocs last year, anticipation for his releases builds so high that it leads to fifteen-minute sell outs and drastic resale prices. Interestingly, the Forum in this collaboration boasts a down-to-earth color palette, straying from the star’s charismatic and playful personality. The Bad Bunny Forum was first previewed in the artist’s Yo Visto Así music video.
The sneaker presents a leather, suede and canvas construction with varying shades of tan, beige and dark brown. Interchangeable sky blue and yellow-green laces come with the shoe while a set of lace guards resemble a brown Puerto Rican flag. Bad Bunny’s signature third eye sits comfortably on the tongue while his bunny logo is seen through a blue translucent circle on the outsole.
Friend and family are beginning to receive their pairs, which come packaged with Gustos coffee beans, a thermos, coffee mug, and skateboard. Expect a public release of the Bad Bunny x adidas Forum ’84 to arrive in the coming weeks via adidas.com and select retailers. Grab a detailed look below and stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for updates.
