Following Darryl Brown ’s successful Midwest Kids Forum Low 84 drop, the Toledo based designer this time channels the energy and blue-collar history of the region that he calls home.
For this release, Darryl chose to update the adidas Campus due to its ability to cross subcultural boundaries, with its basketball heritage and later adoption by different musical and skateboarding communities.
The shoe’s upper is executed in a jade green reminiscent of his father’s workwear uniform, blending suede and canvas materials, as well as a leather lining.
