Today adidas and all-star guard Damian Lillard unveiled his newest signature shoe the D Lillard 2. Inspired by the city that raised him, the D Lillard 2 is designed to reflect Damian’s competitive nature, relentless work ethic and toughness.
“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.”
The D Lillard 2 is constructed with a TECHFIT booty, forefoot webbing and heel counter. With BOUNCE cushioning in the midsole for lightweight comfort, while an internal torsion bar adds midfoot flexibility.
The D Lillard 2 also combines details inspired by Oakland with bold textures and personal callouts as a nod to Damian’s neighborhood roots, off-court style and ability to silence doubt. Like the iconic tree logo featured on the “Welcome to Oakland” sign and Damian’s hometown tattoos – at the heel counter, midsole and eyelets.
