Be fearlessly stylish with the Adidas Forum Bold 

When Adidas launched the Forum in the '80s, it easily took the hardcourt realm by storm. The brand tirelessly gives the Forum various looks over the years, this time as fashionable lifestyle footwear. 

For the latest version, the Three Stripes unveils another Forum variation explicitly designed for women. The thick-soled Adidas Forum Bold brings its wearers' style to a whole new level. It is constructed with vintage and versatile fashion while retaining iconic Forum details - the leather upper and the X-design. 

This fresh execution adds a lace dubrae for a more modern take and replaces the conventional Three Stripe overlay panels on the sides with a Trefoil logo.
