Today, we’re thrilled to officially unveil the third and final sneaker as part of the Xbox 20th Anniversary collaboration, the adidas Forum Tech Boost, the first-ever Xbox sneaker available to purchase globally.
With design inspired by the fastest, most powerful Xbox console ever, the Xbox Series X, the silhouette is a bold start in jet-black, amped further with pops of neon green and tech-driven details.
As with any great design, it’s always about the details, so we started with the Forum Tech Boost, a shoe that draws heavily on the past while incorporating the latest in boost technology. The design is a nod to the Xbox Series X, a platform to experience 20 years of Xbox while also pushing technology to deliver the ultimate gaming experience. Draped in black netting against a green liner, the inside of the shoe resembles the iconic green vents of the Xbox Series X. The sneaker also includes our modern Xbox sphere logo with subtle highlights, to represent our console power button and the elegant style of the Xbox Elite Wireless Controller.
To pay homage to our anniversary in a unique way, we drew additional design inspiration from the Xbox 20th Anniversary Wireless Controller Special Edition. Mirroring the grips on the controller, the shoe features a green heel and translucent sole, pulling directly from the shell of the controller. And as a final touch to celebrate this moment, there is a small Xbox 20th Anniversary logo tucked inside on the sock liner.
Overall, we wanted to create a shoe that cemented a moment in time, but also felt timeless. This is a shoe that is meant to be played in, meant to be worn, and meant to be enjoyed by our community – one that’s always played in, and never played out.
The adidas Forum Tech Boost is available to purchase for $140 USD at partner stores worldwide and adidas.com. For more details, visit the adidas site here.
For our 20th anniversary year, Xbox teamed up with adidas to design three iconic sneakers inspired by our most beloved consoles. The partnership centered around our shared heritage of play, releasing sneakers that collectors and gaming fans alike would be thrilled to wear.
We revealed the first adidas Originals by Xbox sneaker in October, the Xbox 20th Forum Tech, with translucent green details inspired by the special edition release of the original Xbox console for the launch of Halo: Combat Evolved in 2001, marking the first-ever generation of gaming at Microsoft. Then we announced the Xbox 360 Forum Mid, the first-ever Xbox-themed sneaker available to purchase in the U.S. and Canada.
