As Derrick Rose leads the charge for the adidas adiZero movement on the basketball court in the adiZero Crazy Light, the adidas Originals team is also getting in on the lighter is better approach that seems to be sweeping through the sneaker world. They’ve revamped one of the most classic silhouettes from the eighties, the Forum, and given it the adiZero graces. The adidas adiZero Forum Light is the first non-performance oriented shoe to receive the “Fast Don’t Lie” makeover.

Although, you might be thinking, who needs a faster casual shoe? The answer is simple, everyone does. Imagine the extra time you’ll save grabbing a bite to eat, headed to the office, doing homework, or hanging out with your friends watching the game. Lighter is faster, and faster means you’ll have more time in the day. Who couldn’t use that?

Ok, maybe they won’t add time to your day, but with timeless styling, less weight and a more breathable upper thanks to SPRINTSKIN technology, the adiZero Forum Light is definitely a creative reinvention of a classic. With colorways like Black, White and Dark Indigo, and the screamingly bright tennis ball-like Electricity colorway, the adiZero Forum Light is a perfect head-turner for the summer.

Look for the these to be available next month at Eastbay along with other new releases from adidas Originals.
