The sixth overall pick of the 2012 NBA Draft, to a First Team All-NBA caliber player. NBA superstar, Damian Lillard is just one of the top athletes in the league. While Dame D.O.L.L.A. does work on the hardwood, what kicks will he be rocking while he’s crossing people up, draining threes, and leading the Trailblazers to the NBA Playoffs once again?
Being a top athlete and adidas endorser in the world, we know Dame has got to have some fresh kicks for on the court. That’s where the the adidas Dame 5 comes into play. One on One Testers first reported on Damian Lillard’s fifth signature performance silhouette with adidas way back past Summer. Similar to its predecessor, the Dame 5 looks to sport a mid-top collar, aggressive herringbone sole to allow for multidirectional coverage, BOUNCE foam cushioning, and a two-toned upper. Much like the previous performance models in the Damian Lillard signature series, the upper materials varied upon each colorway. While some colorways may sport a mesh build, others may feature synthetic, fused, and textile builds. From the leaks for the Dame 5 in the past, in-hand shots show some colorways with a synthetic build.
While the Dame 5 isn’t set to release for quite some time, we still have a good look at what the three stripes is bringing with Dame’s fifth signature shoe. Full-length BOUNCE foam, aggressive traction, all that will cover you on the court for an affordable price point of $115. The adidas Dame 5 currently has no set release date, but you can expect them to release in February of 2019.
