Microsoft is continuing to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Xbox in style this year with a second themed Adidas sneaker: the Xbox 360 Forum Mid, which, as the name suggests, is inspired by the company’s second console.

The Xbox 360 design follows the first Xbox / Adidas collaboration, announced in October which took inspiration from the original Xbox console. The Xbox 360 Forum Mid, however, is decked out in the 360’s white, silver, and green color scheme for a 2005-era look, complete with plenty of subtle details that reference the original design. The velcro strap, for instance, is emblazoned with the disc tray from the 360, while the air vents and Xbox button are featured on the outside. Even the heel is designed to look like the memory card and hard drive slots. The shoe will come with red, yellow, green, and blue laces, to represent the A, B, X, and Y buttons on the 360 controller, too.

Microsoft and Adidas are also teasing that a third model — inspired by the Xbox Series X — will be announced on November 15th at its celebratory stream for the 20th anniversary of Xbox and Halo to close out the sneaker trilogy.

And unlike the original Xbox collaboration (which was a limited edition for giveaways), the Xbox 360 Forum Mid will actually be available to purchase. The sneaker is set to be available in the US and Canada on November 4th at 7AM PT / 10AM ET on Adidas’ website, although there’s no word on price yet. That said, if demand is anything like it is for the next-gen Xbox Series X, Series S, and even the Xbox mini-fridge, you’ll probably need a healthy dose of luck to snag a pair.
