ADIDAS + NEW YORK ACCESSORIES DESIGNER TULIE YAITOTHE = REIMAGINED FORUM HI
adidas and accessories designer Tulie Yaito announce the limited-edition Forum Hi available July 8, 2023. Known for her vibrant designs and creative approach to color and materials, Tulie presents a luxurious take to the iconic Forum Hi with designs centered on wearable luxury and the fusion of streetwear and high fashion through leather, prints and colors.
The female shoe is inspired by Yaito’s popular knot and Keijō bags, featuring white pebble leather, faux pony hair, cowhide with detachable straps, blue and red ostrich embossed leather, green suede and black paisley embossed cut out leather. The designer’s influence on this limited-edition sneaker showcases a symphony of color and contrast, giving a nod to Tulie’s Jamaican roots and forward-thinking approach to footwear.
“adidas superstar shelltoe was the first pair of sneakers I owned and to have the opportunity to design a shoe with the brand is a full circle moment,” said designer Tulie.
“We’re beyond excited about our partnership with Tulie and to release a fresh take on the Forum Hi,” said adidas Senior Product Manager Esaie Witherspoon. “Tulie has such a unique ability to blend low and high brow, use her expert eye to rediscover an iconic shoe and do it all while giving homage to her roots through color and contrast.”
The exclusive sneaker retails at $130 USD, is female sizing 3-13 and will be available on July 8, 2023 at select retailers and adidas.com.
