Calling all terrace fans – the iconic high-tech Forest Hills has hit our shelves in an exclusive colourway. This week, we are excited to show off our all-new, exclusive pair of adidas Originals Forest Hills, that are only available at scotts. That’s right, if you want to snap up a pair, come to us and we’ll hook you up!

The Forest Hills trainer first sprung onto the scene as a tennis shoe back in the 1970s. Immediately, it became popular as it broke new ground with its breathable design and comfortable fit. Today, the trainer has become a casual staple and arrives in an array of colourways to sharpen up your footwear game.

Back in the 1970s, tennis culture continued to thrive and with the success of trainer icons such as the Stan Smith, adidas accepted the challenge to create the best tennis footwear. When the Forest Hills was first released in ’76, from the word go it was evident that adidas had stepped up their technology and performance know-how. 

First was the name, inspired by the Forest Hills neighbourhood in Queens, New York City. This neighbourhood had strong connections with tennis and until 1978, it was the home of the US Open tennis tournament. Second, came the design. The Forest Hills boasts a NASA footbed alongside a soft leather upper, showcasing the stitched 3-Stripes with perforated detailing. The shoe promised superior performance as it was worn by tennis icons throughout the late 1970s. The first colourway was a white upper, with a contrasting yellow sole and 3 gold stripes – a design that will be remembered in casuals history for the rest of time. Now with subtle updates, the shoe is looking fresher than ever.
