In 2021 adidas Originals headlined its Christmas celebrations by paying homage to one of the world’s most loved festive films – Home Alone. This December, the Trefoil returns with a sequel – this time honoring the second installment of the series with the ‘Home Alone 2’ Forum Lo sneaker. Traveling from Chicago to New York City, the follow up to the instant classic takes inspiration from the iconic scene where Kevin meets the “pigeon lady” at the foot of Gapstow Bridge in Central Park.
Playfully referencing the touching story of understanding, trust, and friendship, the timeless Forum Low sneaker receives a series of unique updates. A tonal gray leather upper is complemented by printed sock liners with depictions of the “pigeon lady”, custom graphic hang tags, co-branded Home Alone 2 tongue labels, interchangeable lace-jewels and three pairs of laces – one of which features a green band, just like the pigeons in Central Park.
The sneaker is then capped off by a poignant detail that recalls one of the film’s most remembered lines. When brought together, an inscription across the two velcro strap bases reads:
“As long as we have our turtle dove, we’ll be friends forever.”
A fitting ode to a holiday classic, the adidas Originals ‘Home Alone 2’ Forum Low sneaker launches globally on December 3rd on CONFIRMED and in selected adidas flagship stores.
