The latest D Lillard 2 colorway is here. Creating a name as one of the most personal athletes in the league, Damian Lillard continues to connect with fans and share pieces of his experience growing up in Oakland with the D Lillard 2 “Tennis Ball” edition.
Damian laced up this limited edition during his sold-out first rap show in downtown Portland on July 15. The D Lillard 2 “Tennis Ball” is designed with a felt-like upper in fluorescent yellow but most importantly remains Oakland certified and continues to shine light on his journey to the NBA.
“The reason I wanted make and wear those shoes at my first show was all for my family. When we were kids, we used to play all types of games on these tennis courts around the corner from my grandma’s house in Brookfield, when all my cousins and family came out on stage with me, it was like we were back on those tennis courts again.” – Damian Lillard
A limited drop of the D Lillard 2 “Tennis Ball” edition will be available Aug 30 for $105 exclusively at Foot Locker 34th Street in New York City.
