Bad Bunny and Adidas have joined forces again and launch the latest iteration of Forum kicks on August 27 at 10 a.m.
Fans will be happy to hear that the silhouette remains essentially the same. The Forum Blues were inspired by the archipelago of Puerto Rico. The shoes are made of leather and suede, combined with the iconic double tongue, double heel padding and a hardware buckle closure system so you can change the laces available in three colors: pastel pink, pastel yellow and baby . blue.
Yes. And I’m not saying that just because I’m a big Bad Bunny fan. (Or because I flew from Puerto Rico to New York this week on a Bad Bunny-inspired plane sponsored by Adidas. Yeah, yeah, I know. Keep reading.) Bella Hadid was seen wearing the sneakers Forum Buckle Low. Although technically inspired by B-ball sneakers, they remind me of the DC and Etnies skate shoes I always coveted in college. Nostalgia!
When Adidas showed me a pair, I pulled them out for a quick test (while blasting Bad Bunny on my headphones). They are comfortable and versatile. And I know they could make me spend over three hours of bailoteo there perreo.
The Adidas Bad Bunny forums are exclusive to the Adidas Confirmed app and cannot be found on other retailers. So download the app and pray you can score that drop before resellers get their hands on it and sell twice their price.
Everyone I spoke to loved them – but, to be fair, they already loved our favorite Puerto Rican Ball Form himbo and they got their pairs for free. But stay!

On August 18, Adidas held a raffle that offered 30 lucky winners from around the world not just a pair of Forum Blues, but also a flight to Puerto Rico to experience the island that Benito himself treasures so much. The three-day trip ends tonight at the Yankee Stadium stop of the World’s Hottest Tour. As a Boricua, I obviously jumped at the chance to come on board too.
Here is the 411: JetBlue is cute, but Air Benito baby blue is better. The exterior of the jet displayed the heart caricature from Bad Bunny’s latest album, A Verano Sin Ti, and it was all about baby blue. Boarding tickets bore the names of towns in Puerto Rico: Arecibo, Mayagüez, Toa Baja, Trujillo Alto. The gift bags with neck pillows and blankets on each seat were designed by Benito himself, according to an Adidas representative. Benito even made sure that the four-legged friends could comfortably fit in each bag. (As the real ones know, Benito is a dog dad.)
Anyway, the fact that when you wear them you feel like you’re part of Bad Bunny’s world domination, it’s worth downloading an app to try your luck before they sell out .
