Xbox and Adidas Unveil New Sneaker in 20th Anniversary Collaboration
Last month, we got our first glimpse of the Xbox and Adidas crossover with the first shoe fans would be able to purchase to celebrate Xbox’s 20th anniversary. Today, we get our first look at the next sneaker fans who will be able to pre-order tomorrow.
“With a plethora of visual throwbacks and Easter eggs that fans will love, the Xbox 360 Forum Mid is truly designed as a love letter to one of the most iconic consoles in gaming history,” says James Monosmith, Senior Sales & Marketing Manager. “Drawing inspiration from the original Xbox 360 console’s colours — white, silver, and green — the incredible details highlighted throughout the sneaker represent a playful celebration and nod to the vibrant history of Xbox.”
The strap, the Xbox 360 disc tray and the classic 360-era buttons appear on the shoe’s outer side. Even the console’s air vents appear on the inner side of the shoe and the heel features a reference to the 360’s removable hard drive and memory unit slots. Just by looking at the sneakers, you’re looking at the console in a new way given that the team spent a lot of time finding ways to include all the great things about the Xbox 360.
Okay, so if you’re like me and wondering when these will be available to purchase, don’t worry the process begins tomorrow. the Originals by Xbox — Xbox 360 Forum mid comes with four additional pairs of laces in red, yellow, green, and blue (representing the face buttons of the Xbox 360 controller), will be available to purchase in the U.S. and Canada on November 4 at 7:00 AM PT/10:00 “Always Played In. Never Played Out.” AM ET via the Adidas website.
Don’t forget to check the “Always Played In. Never Played Out.” program, created to celebrate the three eras of Xbox. Fans will be able to look back at the launch of the Xbox 360 – but don’t wait as it won’t be around for long.
