Who should buy the Adidas D Lillard

The Adidas D Lillard is the first signature shoe of the 2013 Rookie of The Year. It is built for players who rely on their dynamic jumping ability just like the Trailblazer’s high-flying point guard. This shoe is the perfect option for you if:

  • You're a Damian Lillard fan and you would not miss out on his first signature model.
  • You're a Dame-like player who gives dynamic performances on every game.

Sprintframe provides midfoot stability and a smooth heel-to-toe transition.

Dynamic outsole performance of D Lillard

A new herringbone pattern lines the non-marking rubber outsole of the Adidas D Lillard.

The wavebone pattern is tight near the toe to limit dust and durable on the heel.

It gives enhanced traction control and enables you to make quick cuts in the open floor and explosive crossovers in the half-court.

Sturdy secure lockdown system

An inner TechFit cleatie provides a glove-like fit, minimizing forefoot and midfoot movement.

Minimalist aesthetic of Adidas D Lillard

A two-tone synthetic material wraps the D Lillard’s upper, providing a simple and clean style.

The material used depends on the shoe's colorway. It may be synthetic leather, suede, or nubuck.

Damian Lillard's signature style

Damian Lillard specifically asked for a low-top design that he can wear off the court. Each of the colorways of the Adidas D Lillard features specially crafted rap lyrics in the insole. These lyrics are written by Dame.

Dame is written on the tongue of the right shoe, and the brand-new D Lillard logo is featured on the heel of the left shoe. The stylized DL initials join together to form an "O". This logo represents Dame’s jersey number and his three homes: Oakland, Ogden (where he played at Weber State) and now Oregon. A three-striped wing completes the logo and is said to represent his crew of close friends, the Fly Guyz.
