adidas continues its annual tribute to spring with the Florist City Collection. Inspired by the iconic flowers that bloom in the city of Portland and the state of Illinois, the collection includes the D Lillard 2 and the D Rose 6.
Damian Lillard introduces his third Florist City edition that represents Portland’s famous rose gardens and Rose Festival with an all-red D Lillard 2. The latest ode to the city’s favorite flower features a woven upper with a unique rose pattern and deep black contrasts. A clear graphic on the shoe’s upper panels deliver a droplet effect, while metallic Oak Print hits on the heel cap and lace lock cast a bold, reflective finish.
The D Rose 6 details Illinois’ state flower, the violet, which is graphically printed on the upper with dark purple and black accents. Celebrating the arrival of spring, the silhouette is designed with gold hits on the lace loop, eyelets, webbing straps, signature branding and heel cap foil treatment. The Florist City edition also features a translucent black outsole with gold flecks.
The D Rose 6 ($140) and D Lillard 2 ($105) drop March 18 at adidas.com and select retailers.
