Microsoft has teamed up with Adidas to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Xbox, and Xbox fans in the US and Canada will be able to purchase the first-ever Xbox-themed Adidas sneakers tomorrow, November 4. The limited-edition Adidas sneakers are named the “Xbox 360 Forum Mid,” and their design includes a lot of cool Easter eggs for Xbox fans.
“On the strap, you’ll note the Xbox 360 disc tray, along with the classic 360-era Xbox button design on the shoe’s outer side and the console’s air vents on the inner side. Additionally, the heel features references to the Xbox 360’s distinctive removable hard drive and memory unit slots. There are a myriad of details to discover and enjoy, including some hidden secrets for fans,” the Xbox team explained today.
The Adidas Xbox 360 Forum Mid will be available to purchase on adidas.com in the U.S. and Canada starting tomorrow, November 4 at 7:00 a.m. PT, though pricing details are not yet available as of this writing. Anyway, the box will include four pairs of laces in red, yellow, green, and blue, as a nice homage to the color of the ABXY buttons of Xbox controllers.
The Xbox 360 Forum Mid is actually the second pair of Adidas sneakers inspired by the Xbox brand: Microsoft previously revealed the Adidas Xbox 20th Forum Tech sneakers earlier this month, but those aren’t available for purchase. Microsoft plans to reveal a third and final Adidas sneaker inspired by Xbox Series X on November 15 during a special broadcast celebrating the 20th anniversary of Xbox and Halo, so watch this space if you’re a sneaker fan.
