The Definitive adidas Forum Size Guide

The combination of sport and style, the adidas Forum was made for making a statement no matter where you step. Find your Forum fit using our size guide.

The 80’s birthed staples in pop culture and elevated the fashion scene with acid wash denim, leg warmers, and the iconic adidas Forum. Created as a basketball shoe, the Forum was the first b-ball sneaker to feature hi, mid and low-top variants. The Forum has walked a million miles since it touched down on the scene. Although the Forum started as a sports shoe it has made its way in to the wardrobe of fashion lovers and influencers making it a popular lifestyle sneaker.
Dive into our adidas Forum size guide below to find your fit.

How Is The Forum Supposed To Fit?

Do Forums run big? No. All iterations of the adidas Forum run true to size. The Forum is still wider than the hardcourt classic Stan Smith, with the added room and overall chunkier construction fit to serve its original purpose on the basketball court. Its leather upper can also stretch out over time, adding to the comfy broken-in feel that has made it a lifestyle favorite for generations of sneakerheads. So, when buying a pair, remember that Forum sizing is a standard fit, so get your normal size.

What Are The Functional Benefits Of The Forum?
