This season, adidas Originals and Arwa Al Banawi have come together to launch a carefully considered take on the iconic Forum silhouette. Through her Saudi Arabian brand she has consistently inspired Arab communities by empowering women and communicating authentic cultural touch points.
Drawing on Arwa’s spirit animal, the “Ibex”, the sneaker’s unique details are partly inspired by “Capra” — which translates to “Mountain Goat Family”. Composed of a canvas upper with suede overlays and matching leather stripes with hand-stitched embroidery, the Arwa Al Banawi Forum Lo sneaker is rendered in desert-esque pantones. Serving as an ode to the designer’s roots and identity, the unique silhouette boasts a woven red and white heel cap which is inspired by the checkered pattern of traditional Arabian fabrics. Rounding out the look, the Arwa Al Banawi Forum Lo sneaker features branded lace jewels, a graphic footbed with contrast binding, and gold foil co-branded details.
