adidas x Jeremy Scott Forum Money

Jeremy Scott first collaborated with Adidas in 2002 to remake their classic high-top the Forum as part of the i-sign project. For the uppers, Scott chose a silk fabric from his apparel collection featuring dollar bills with his portrait in the place of George Washington’s. Scott claims that the printed sneaker “was inspired by American television game shows and the concept of winning prizes like washing machines, luxurious vacations, or a shopping cart full of cash.” The money motif also referenced the fact that the Adidas Forum, which was released in 1982, was the first basketball sneaker to have a $100 price tag. Totaling only 100 pairs, the shoes were handmade in the Adidas factory in Germany.
