Eastbay Photo of the Week: adidas Originals adiZero Forum

words // Nick Engvall

The adidas Fast Don’t Lie campaign is just one of the many reasons that the adidas Basketball footwear has been making huge strides this season. For soccer, the ultra lightweight F50 began gaining momentum during the World Cup, and with a new and lighter version now available, hasn’t slowed a bit. For football, the adidas adiZero 5-Star, as Jeff McGillis detailed, is being called the lightest football cleat ever created. The common thread between these faster and  lighter designs is one common element, the adiZero prefix.

The adidas adiZero technology that has reduced the weight of the company’s performance-oriented shoes from running to football, will make its way into the adidas Originals line this summer. One of the limited edition releases will be a remake of one of their most famous ’80s basketball shoes, the Forum Mid. The lightweight approach will change up the traditional leather upper for a lighter SPRINTSKIN version, without losing the overall “Originals” feel of the iconic shoe.

Look for the adidas Originals to be available early this summer.
