The whole removable tassel look is pretty common on modern boot offerings, but to see it on an OG basketball sneaker like the adidas Originals Forum Mid is a completely different story. This dope duet of the adidas Originals Forum Moccasin Mid made in collaboration with Leaders 1354 out of Chicago uses a lux leather for the uppers, locking down the native look in conjunction with the aforementioned tassels on the back. The pairs pay tribute to the Potawatomi tribe that originally inhabited the Chicago area, a nice little tie-in for this special release. Both colorways will be dropping this Saturday, December 17th at the LDRS 1354 space out in Chi-town. Hit the jump for a detailed look and let us know which ones you’ll be picking up. via EU Kicks

adidas Originals has taken its heritage classics to a new level thanks to the eccentric mind of fashion-forward Jeremy Scott, but this Moccasin Mid you see here is work of art from Chicago’s Leaders 1354 shop. Featuring the classic Forum Mid at the core and adorned with leather tassels on the heel with black zig-zag contrast stitching, the adidas Originals Forum Moccasin Mid captures that native and indigenous appeal with the perfect combination of detail and color. The blue stitch detail on the outer toe provides the perfect final touch, but look again and you’ll see that the inner lining is a matching blue as well. adidas hits one out of the park with this one, so check out these new images courtesy of RegularOlTy and expect these at select adidas retailers starting next Saturday.
