Update (12/15): adidas has unveiled Damian Lillard’s latest signature shoe, the Dame 8.
“This shoe is special to me because it reflects a boxer’s mindset – working hard every single day, putting in the extra hours during training, and bringing the heat right down to the last second of every game,” said Lillard.
The adidas Dame 8 is constructed with a lightweight Bounce Pro midsole, and a unique traction pattern, the shoe offers the right balance of energy return, stability, and traction to fuel dynamic movements through the final moments of the game. As well, it features a firmer sidewall cushioning for extra stability that gives players the comfort they need for explosive play plus the support for lateral movements.
