Microsoft and Adidas have been releasing commemorative Xbox-themed sneakers since October to mark the brand’s 20th anniversary. It all started with a pair of Forum Tech shoes that the two companies gave away to a group of lucky fans. Then, in November, they released a pair of Xbox 360-themed Forum Mid sneakers for purchase in the US and Canada. Now, for their third and final drop, the two have released an Xbox Series X inspired design for sale worldwide.
This time around, Microsoft and Adidas say they’ve gone for the Tech Boost silhouette because, like the Xbox Series X/S, it’s a design that recognizes the past while incorporating new technologies. As with the other sneakers in the series, you’ll find plenty of smart references here. For example, the inner lining of the shoes is based on the design of the vents of the Xbox Series X. Meanwhile, the heel and sole of the shoes mirror the grips of the Xbox Elite wireless controller.
“Overall, we wanted to make a shoe that confirmed a moment in time, but also felt timeless,” Microsoft said. “This is a shoe that is meant to be played in, worn and enjoyed by our community – a shoe that is always played in and never played out.”
You can buy the Xbox Series X Forum Tech Boost on the Adidas website for $140. If you’re not a sneakerhead, Microsoft has released other commemorative products to mark the console’s 20th anniversary, including a translucent controller that pays tribute to the console’s 20th anniversary. original Xbox debugging kit.
