NBA superstar Damian Lillard is back again with Adidas to release another colorway of his signature shoes, the Lillard 2 ?PDX Carpet? edition, which will be out today, July 1.
The latest collaboration between Adidas and the point guard of Portland Trail Blazers is inspired by the famous carpet design lining the floors of the Portland International Airport. As Lillard spends much of his time playing professional basketball in Portland, the Three Stripes has taken liberty to design the Lillard 2 with a minty green translucent outsole that appears to be the same color found on the PDX carpet.
As far as the rest of the shoe goes, Adidas D Lillard 2 features white and grey primeknit threads, red accents and an all-white bootie construction paired with matching oak print lace locks, heel counter and midsole. Light-colored teal hits have been applied to the laces, mesh panels and heel tab to pay further tribute to the PDX carpet.
Dame laced up the PDX Carpet colorway when he traveled to Asia during the Adidas Take on Summer tour where he met fans at basketball games, in-store appearances and more in Beijing, Chengdu, Taipei and Manila.
The Adidas ?PDX Carpet? 2016 is set to retail for a suggested price of $120 and will land in select Adidas? retailers on Friday, July 1, as well as online at adidas.com.
Meanwhile, Adidas also released another new iteration of its popular performance sneakers with the launch of Ultra Boost Uncaged. The brand?s new slate with Ultra Boost sole now features the primeknit-laden running shoe devoid of an upper ?cage? to achieve the low-profile sock-like feel. It has a design similar to that of Nike?s Sock Dart that sees the Ultra Boost shoes lose their typical plastic shell for a more free fit.
In addition, Adidas also plans to release the next in line Yeezy Boost 350 which fans are hoping will be the ?all-white? colorway of Kanye West?s sneaker line. Though there is no official release date, rumors are heating up, suggesting the release could happen in a few weeks or so. You can check here for photos and more info on Yeezy Boost 350 ?White.?
