Adidas Los Angeles has linked up with an NBA legend for its latest sneaker release.

The German sportswear giant announced late last night via the Instagram account of online marketplace @NTWRK that it tapped Los Angeles Lakers great Kareem Abdul-Jabbar to collaborate on a special Forum Low style.

According to @NBAKicks on Instagram, only 33 pairs of the shoes are releasing and 100% of the proceeds will go toward Abdul-Jabbar’s Skyhook Foundation benefiting the Los Angeles youth. The account also revealed that the gold mesh upper of the limited-edition sneaker has crafted out of a Lakers jersey. Adding to the bold execution are purple accents featured on the side’s Three Stripes branding along with Abdul-Jabbar’s jersey number stamped on the lateral portion. Rounding out the look is a white rubber outsole.

Abdul-Jabbar’s custom Adidas Forum Low will be released this Saturday exclusively on the NTWRK app via Sneaker Con’s virtual event but a retail price for the shoe has yet to be revealed.

Given the limited nature of the aforementioned collab, a majority of sneaker fans won’t be able to buy a pair but a different style of the Adidas Forum Low is available at Adidas.com now. At the time of press, the basketball-turned-lifestyle shoe is available on the Adidas website in a simple white and royal blue colorway in men’s size 4 to men’s size 11 for $90.
