For the first time, Adidas has made a skate-ready version of its iconic Forum basketball sneaker.

Adidas Skateboarding revealed a new-look Forum 84 ADV, which was designed alongside sponsored skater Diego Nájera. The look, according to Adidas, is an homage to one of Nájera’s favorite footwear models and is inspired by his “unique lens on the City of Angels.”

To make it skate-ready, Adidas equipped the Forum 84 ADV is constructed with premium grain leather uppers and suede eyestays, mesh-backed stripes and tumbled leather on the toe boxes, which were added to offer stability, breathability and durability. Custom detailing to the look from Nájera includes a removable velcro strap, ice blue accents and translucent paneling. Also, his handwritten script signature is on the outsole.

The Adidas Skateboarding Forum 84 ADV by Diego Nájera arrives July 24 on Adidas.com/skateboarding and at select skate retailers. The sneaker will retail for $110.
