adidas Skateboarding Unveils the Forum 84 ADV by Diego Nájera


The last time I went on anything resembling a skateboard, I felt like I broke my tailbone.  Granted, it was a Onewheel but that is another story.  If I owned these 84 ADV’s, it might have been another story. 

adidas Skateboarding unveils its first-ever take on the brand’s iconic Forum basketball silhouette with the Forum 84 ADV by Diego Nájera reimagined and meticulously co-designed with Pro team rider Diego Nájera. Inspired by Nájera’s unique lens on the City of Angels, the native Angelino appropriately chose the Forum 84 Mid ADV to pay homage to one of his favorite footwear models – taking a spin on the hardwood classic and his love for car customization and tuner culture.

The Forum 84 ADV by Diego Nájera is a West Coast certified and fully skatable interpretation of the Forum heritage classic with enhanced performance updates specific for skateboarding. Nájera’s custom detailing includes a removable velcro strap, ice blue accents and translucent paneling along with his signature subtly placed in handwritten script on the bottom of the outsole. A mashup of premium grain leather upper, suede eyestays, mesh backed stripes and tumbled leather toe box provide for ultimate stability, breathability and extended durability. 

Fusing legacy design with high-performance features, the Forum 84 ADV by Diego Nájera is a fully skateable interpretation of the iconic classic that debuted in 1984 that was championed across basketball and street lifestyle.

The Forum 84 Mid ADV is the first and potentially only Forum 84 Mid offering from the adidas Skateboarding category. 

The adidas Skateboarding x Forum 84 ADV by Diego Nájerasilhouette retails for $110 USD / €110 and will be available for purchase on July 24th via www.adidas.com/skateboarding and select skate retailers worldwide.
