Here’s a closer look at Quiccs’ new iteration of the iconic Forum Low
Following the excitement around Filipino artist’s Adidas Manila Tees, Quiccs is once again harnessing his creativity and artistry through the Quiccs Forum, a reimagined iteration of the brand’s iconic Forum Low silhouette.
An embodiment of this silhouette is Filipino toy designer and visual artist, Juanito “Quiccs” Maiquez, whose Quiccs Forum iteration marks the first time that a Filipino has designed an Adidas Originals shoe. With this, Quiccs lands a space in Adidas history as he joins an elite group of global artists and athletes whose works and passions are immortalized in Adidas’ footwear.
“Since the beginning of this partnership, I have said how I would like to be able to show and inspire other people that through passion, patience and hard work, one can build their dreams into a reality. ‘Earning my stripes’ was an opportunity I only used to dream of, and now I am living it, and I am honored to share with my fellow Filipinos— and the rest of the world— an iconic Adidas Originals silhouette featuring a design that was a product of my passion and creativity,” says Quiccs.
With striking red stripes that represent the “Stripes Earned” through Quiccs’ brand passion, the new Forum symbolizes the fruition and realization of his partnership with Adidas, a lifelong journey that started out as a dream for the artist. Inspired by the iconic and bestselling Forum 84 Low OG “Blue Thread” and “Pine Green” colorways, Quiccs’ reimagined Forum infuses the shoe’s classic look with his own branding – a perfect representation of the Forum’s call to experiment with self-expression and new ideas.
Quiccs fans will be able to spot design elements that are true to the artists’ DNA. The Crossbones logo and the “TEQ63” motifs will be seen on the reflective 3M upper. Another feature is a statement which says “It was all a dream” and a date “01.21.20,” representing the official start of the artist’s partnership with the brand. Another unique feature is the interchangeable strap designs giving wearers the option for self-expression.
