Damian Lillard basketball shoes
If Nike has LeBron James and Kobe Bryant to keep the cash flowing, Adidas certainly has Derrick Rose, James Harden, and Damian Lillard to keep the competition going. As a rising star, Damian entered into a $100 million deal with Adidas in early 2014. The deal is reported to be the third-largest in the history of the NBA.
The hefty Adidas deal is satisfactorily justified. He received the Magic Johnson Award at the end of the 2016-2017 season. Lillard also reached the 9000-point milestone on October 28, 2017, becoming the fastest Trail Blazer to do so. In 2018, he was elected as an NBA All-Star for the third time. He was a reserve for the team led by Stephen Curry and coach Mark D’Antoni. He was teammates with James Harden and Klay Thompson. They faced LeBron James who led a team that has Kyrie Irving, Kevin Durant, Paul George, and John Wall in it.
Adidas has already released several Damian Lillard basketball shoes and some lifestyle sneakers. Similar to how Damian Lillard expresses himself through music, each shoe has a story to tell.
Dame basketball shoes: The story they tell
Lillard wants his Dame basketball shoes to talk about his journeys in life and the people and events that influenced them. Damian Lillard basketball shoes bear various symbols that hold deep meaning. Some of the most common symbolic elements are the following:
- The Damian Lillard logo. Damian Lillard’s logo is a basically a “D” and an “L” fused together, creating a winged “0.” The three-striped wing represents the “Fly Guys,” who are Dame’s close friends.
- Oak and land. “Oak” and “land” are found on the outsoles of the second Lillard shoes. They represent the birth land of the star point guard.
- DAME D.O.L.L.A. DAME D.O.L.L.A. is Lillard’s moniker as a rap artist. It means “Different on Levels the Lord Allows.” In his songs, he raps about triumphs and struggles to become who he is today. His lyrics include thanking his former Weber State University basketball coach Phil Beckner for helping him get into the league.
