Kareem Abdul-Jabbar’s 33 Custom adidas Forums to Benefit Los Angeles Youth

Luis Torres

With the return of the adidas Forum, adidas Los Angeles and Lakers legend Kareem Abdul-Jabbar are teaming up for a limited release that gives back to the LA youth through the Skyhook Foundation, which he founded in 2009.

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar is giving back with this upcoming drop as 33 pairs of the adidas Forum Low pay homage to the Lakers Hall of Famer as well as the Three Stripes’ hardwood classic.

The custom adidas Forum, made by factory8384, is the perfect nod as the upper material is hand-made with Kareem’s Los Angeles Lakers home jersey. And, of course, his jersey number inspired the limited units of the pair. 

“I’m proud to be partnering with adidas Los Angeles for this limited release. Together we are giving kids a shot that can’t be blocked,” Kareem Abdul-Jabbar said.

Each pair will cost $1,000, personally signed by Abdul-Jabbar himself, with 100% of proceeds benefiting the Skyhook Foundation. The limited-edition shoe will be released on June 26 at Sneaker Con, taking place on the mobile-first experience app NTWRK

Sole Savy is unreal! With a busy schedule it’s hard to keep up on shoes, and the group keeps me up to date on releases, tips on how to manually cop, and a marketplace with killer deals from fellow like minded collectors. It’s changed the sneaker game for me!

@SoleSavy is the truth. They've helped me cop kicks I never would've imagined getting at retail. Members always willing to assist on drops too. And most of all, a REAL community of REAL sneakerheads. These guys should be the gold standard for sneaker communities! #LifetimeMember

My membership paid for itself three fold by being solely responsible for my union 4’s, mesh sacai waffles, sacai blazers, court purple aj1s, glow in the dark yeezy 350s, travis scott lows (which I traded to get desert ore ow’s), air max 1 londons, bc3’s for way under retail etc.

Can't say enough about SS. The stellar help with copping shoes is a given but it's the community that makes it extra special. Hands down one of the best decisions I made as a wannabe sneakerhead.

The community of sneakerheads and resources available to help manually cop are great and really will help you get more Ws. The Zoom calls for hyped drops like Union Jordan 4 only adds to the camaraderie while providing real time instruction
