SNIPES and adidas Originals are releasing a new sneaker in honor of Detroit, and it’s dropping on 313 Day! Introducing the adidas Forum Low “Detroit” is a snipes exclusive shoe that pays homage to the Motor City.
This sneaker is a must-have for any true sneakerhead. The classic adidas silhouette features a sleek black and gold colorway, with “I Am Detroit” emblazoned on the strap. The sneaker also features a tear-away option. Consumers who purchase a pair can tear off the white upper, which will unveil a secondary layer, which features the Detroit skyline.

The premium leather upper provides durability and support, while the EVA midsole and rubber outsole offer superior cushioning and traction. Whether you’re hitting the streets or hitting the dance floor, the adidas Forum Low “Detroit” has got you covered.
To celebrate the release of this sneaker, SNIPES is hosting a full day dance competition, including a 2v2 Jit & Breakin’ Competition, with $2,000 in prize money on the line. This competition will feature some of the best dancers from across the Midwest, showcasing their incredible skills and pushing the boundaries of the Jit and Breakin’ styles.

The event will be hosted by the talented Kay Bae, with judging by renowned dance experts Man of God, Stringz, Queen Gabby, and Yaks. To keep the energy going, DJ Shane Treez will be spinning the latest hip-hop beats during the competition, and DJ Vader will take over for the official 313 Day After Party.
