Today adidas unveils Damian Lillard’s second signature shoe with the three stripes. This time around Dame’s kicks go deeper into his roots and upbringings. Lillard wanted a sneaker to represent his background, and what life was like growing up in a small neighborhood by the name of Brookfield in Oakland, CA.
“Signature details – I wanted it to have more hints of my background,” Damian explained. “I still wanted it to be a stylish shoe, to be worn off the court again. Being in Portland makes it easy to get my ideas across, meet with designers and create something special for fans.” – Damian Lillard
The Rip City (home) colorway is designed with a textile cream upper and off-white suede detailing for a luxury finish, while interior mesh panels deliver added breathability. Red and black accents are featured throughout, paired with Oak Print hits and a gum outsole for a true court to street silhouette.
The Road colorway features an all-black upper with leather trim and red hits on the laces, outsole, three stripes and Dame branding.
