The way Frank the Butcher tells it, the Forum Crest Hi from adidas was a shoe that immediately caught his eye when he saw them being worn by hustlers from around the block. Young and impressionable, Frank didn’t see the embroidered gold crest as a decorative element on a pair of high-top kicks — he saw luxury and refinement, a glimpse into a better life. Twenty years later, when he traveled to the North American headquarters of adidas to begin work on a collaborative sneaker, he naturally pitched the Forum Crest Hi. The result is the resurrection of a long-lost shoe in three tonal colorways — Cardinal, Lead and Black — in buttery suede and featuring that signifier of elevated status, the embroidered crest. Available soon, with the black colorway exclusive to Boylston Trading Co. Click through for more looks.
