Chicago basketball and sneaker culture collide as Candace Parker of the Chicago Sky and Diego Ross of LEADERS 1354 come together to introduce the new LDRS x adidas Forum Hi.
The adidas Forum, a classic silhouette first introduced in 1984, quickly grew from the era’s most advanced basketball shoe to a street staple. This is thanks in part to its $100 retail price, which marked it as a status symbol in the streets, as a triple digit price tag for a sneaker was unheard of at the time. LEADERS 1354, one of Chicago’s most iconic sneaker stores, continues its long-standing relationship with the Three Stripes with an elegant take on the silhouette that fits perfectly with today’s street fashion realm.
The LEADERS 1354 x adidas Forum features premium leather construction and comes in a creamy Clear Brown color scheme. The adidas Forum crest is embossed in gold on the tongue and quarter panel, while a LDRS 1354 logo is embossed in gold on the backside of the tongue.
In celebration of the release and Chicago’s rich basketball and sneaker culture, two-time WNBA MVP Candace Parker sits down with Leaders’ Diego Ross. The two discuss the history of the Forum, their favorite Chicago ballers, and more. The LEADERS 1354 x adidas Forum Hi releases on Friday, May 21st at 12pm CT via LEADERS 1354 in-store and online. Check out the interview between Parker and Ross, as well as a detailed look at the shoe, below.
