Although Nike has done a bit of an NBA takeover this week with all their releases inspired by this year’s All Star Game in Phoenix, Arizona, Adidas is also putting their foot in the door with a special make-up of the Forum Mid. They are inspired by the Eastern Conference, with notable features including the East’s colors of white and blue, as well as EASTSIDE stitched onto the upper near the collar. The AZ 2009 written on the toe, and the snakeskin accents on the upper are also signs that these are inspired by the All Star Game. This pair of Adidas Forum Mids feature a unique combination of mesh, leather, and 3M. For those of you who like what you see, we are saddened to have to tell you that they will only be given to VIPs at All Star weekend. Via SOLE blvd.
