END Clothing, one of Europe’s premier sneaker boutiques, has a long history of linking up with various brands and elevating silhouettes through spot-on color palettes and upgraded materials. With their last collaborative project on the Forum silhouette coming to us at the end of 2020, the duo is back for more in 2022 with three colorways of the END x adidas Forum “Varsity Collection,” two low-tops and one high-top, being revealed.
All three colorways come constructed out of premium leather and suede with the majority of the silhouette taking on a mixture of cream and white while the accenting colors differ on all three pairs. White lands on the perforated toebox, tongue, X-ankle strap, lockdown strap, and midfoot panel with cream shades appearing on the mudguard and heel overlay, though one pair within the collection, the adidas Forum Advance, removes the aforementioned lockdown strap. Branding details get a slight makeover via the tongue tag with “END” embossed on the left pair of each colorway while the insoles for all three come co-branded between the two collaborators. The Three Stripes logo on the midfoot is covered in suede with the "Burgundy" pair featuring one yellow, cream, and burgundy stripe, the "Green" pair replacing the red shade with forest green, and the high-top "Navy" pair replacing the third color with, of course, navy. More of these accent colors appear on the sockliner, rubber overlay on the heel, and the rubber outsole. Finishing the look is the cream-colored midsole with adidas branding debossed on the heel portion.
All three colorways of the END x adidas Forum Varsity Collection is slated to release through END Clothing on July 30th, 2022 with an adidas release coming in the near future. Releasing in men’s sizing, the retail price for all three pairs is set at £95 (Approx $115 USD).
