Damian Lillard's kicks for the start of the season.
Adidas has officially unveiled a new colorway of the D Lillard 2, the signature shoe Damian Lillard, which will be worn during the start of the 2016-2017 season. Lillard has earned a reputation for taking over in the clutch and the "Dame Time" edition of the D Lillard 2 pays tribute to those big-time plays.
"I've always practiced game-winning shots since I was a kid. My brother and I used to count down the finals seconds, and we wouldn't leave the hoop until we made it," Dame explained. "It's a routine that's helped shape my mentality in those final moments of a game. I'll just point to the watch, and you know what time it is."
The "Dame Time" D Lillard 2 features a tonal shot clock mosaic on a bright red upper and utilizes design cues from disappearing minutes in crunch time to reveal .9 seconds. Matching the ice in his veins, the latest D Lillard 2 also features icey accents along the outsole and heel branding while gold hits on the lace tips and eyelets cap off the buzzer beating tribute.
