In October, Microsoft and Adidas partnered to celebrate the Xbox’s 20th anniversary with the first-ever pair of official Xbox footwear. For fans of the company’s original 2001 console, the Forum Tech sneakers were a treat with their nostalgic green and black colorway. There was just one problem with the shoes: you couldn’t buy them. Thankfully, that’s not true of their latest collaboration, which will be available to buy in the US and Canada.
Microsoft describes the Xbox 360 Forum Mid as a “love letter to one of the most iconic gaming consoles in gaming history.” That means plenty of details Xbox 360 fans will appreciate. Most noticeable is the Xbox button on the outer side of the shoes, but there are other fun touches, including the straps that replicate the console’s optical drive. Another nifty inclusion is that each pair comes with four additional pairs of laces in red, yellow, green and blue, so all four controller face button colors are represented. Oh, and expect Easter Eggs.
Sales of the Xbox 360 Forum Mid shoes will start on November 4th at 10am ET. You can grab them from the Adidas website. If you don’t fancy yourself a sneakerhead, Microsoft is releasing other commemorative products to mark the Xbox brand’s 20th birthday. On November 15th, the company will come out with a translucent Xbox Series X/S controller and headset.
