In commemorating Vibe Magazine on its 15th year anniversary, adidas is set to release a super limited Forum Mid on Sept. 25.

Only 1,500 pairs of the adidas Forum Mid XVIBE will be produced and the shoe will hit you for about $125, available only at adidas Originals retail locations in select markets nationwide.

Because both VIBE and adidas have deep roots in hip hop culture, this shoe is a definite collector's item. Don't sleep on this purchase. The shoe's design is crazy, using patent leather scale-like pattern on the upper, with special laces that tie back into the adidas trademark three stripes.

Chat with Jay Corbin, the Sneaker Sensei, at 3 p.m. ET on Friday.
