Adidas gets into the festive spirit with two themed footwear launches

Adidas has welcomed in the holiday season by launching two festive footwear collaborations with Dr. Seuss and Home Alone 2.

The first collaboration was inspired by the cult-classic Christmas film, The Grinch. The brand has put a festive spin on its beloved basketball icon, the Forum Low trainers.

Inspired by the mischievous protagonist himself, these trainers are imagined with a long hair suede upper in the signature Grinch green hue. The tongue is characterised by the Grinch’s beady green eyes and is finished off with lace charms featuring his faithful sidekick Max and stolen presents.

Sparking fans' nostalgia, the Adidas Originals x The Grinch Forum Low will be available in adult and junior sizing on 1 December.

The Forum Low trainers undergoes an additional Christmas makeover, this time paying homage to the Home Alone film series. The neutral pair honours the second in the series, ‘Home Alone 2’.

They take inspiration from the iconic scene where Kevin meets the ‘pigeon lady’ at the foot of Gapstow Bridge in Central Park, New York.

Referencing the charming story of understanding and friendship, the trainer receives a series of unique updates including a tonal grey leather upper, printed sock liners, tongue labels, and lace jewels. Suspended from the velcro strap are tags featuring depictions of the ‘pigeon lady’.

The design is completed with a detail that recalls one of the film’s most remembered lines. When brought together, an inscription across the two velcro strap bases reads: “As long as we have our turtle dove, we’ll be friends forever.”

Adidas Originals' ‘Home Alone 2’ Forum Low sneakers launch globally on 3 December.
