When news of Jeremy Scott’s return to adidas broke out, one of the first confirmed releases was the revival of Scott’s money print kicks. We now have an official look at the 2021 Money Wings Forum Hi.
This release references the eccentric designer’s first project with the Three Stripes, a silk money print Forum Hi limited to 100 pairs in 2003. A JS Wings 2.0 version was released ten years later in 2013. According to Scott, the money print “was inspired by American television game shows and the concept of winning prizes like washing machines, luxurious vacations or a shopping cart full of cash.”
Like the previous versions, this Forum Hi comes completely covered in a dollar bill print, with Scott’s face replacing Washington. The 2021 version also features forest green accents, notable on the leather Three Stripes side panel branding, the midsole heel clip, and the leather sockliner. The placement of the wings, attached to the lateral eyelets, is more akin to the JS Wings 1.0, rather than the 2.0 which has the wings protruding out past the rear of the shoe.
Reports indicate that the Jeremy Scott x adidas Forum Hi Money Wings will drop in August on adidas.com (likely via Confirmed app) and will be limited to 2,400 pairs, though that has yet to be confirmed. Check out official images of the shoe below and stay tuned to Modern Notoriety for additional updates.
