adidas and Damian Lillard Drop The New D Lillard 2 “Yellow Tape” Colorway

Adidas D Lillard 2 Yellow Tape Release Details 01

Damian Lillard ranks among the best point guards in the NBA, a detail that can’t be ignored especially after leading the Portland Trailblazers to the second round of the Western Conference Playoffs despite losing all four of his fellow starters from the previous year. You just can’t doubt or count out Dame, and that’s something that his personal trainer Chris Farr has preached to number 0 since his workouts leading up to the NBA Draft his rookie season. That’s the story that adidas and Damian Lillard will tell with this Saturday’s adidas D Lillard 2 “Yellow Tape” colorway, an homage to the yellow caution tape that Farr roped off the court with during Lillard’s pre-draft workouts.

“We actually roped off the court with yellow tape after his pre-draft workout in Oakland with NBA scouts. I knew they had never seen a workout like that before but the amazing thing is he still wanted to keep going – he didn’t want to leave any doubt behind,” Chris Farr said. “I always keep a roll of yellow tape in my bag and when I give it to Dame, he understands it’s the ultimate reward. Our yellow tape is a form of motivation to always be better. It’s something Damian and I are both familiar with being from Oakland. I’m humbly blessed to work with a man like him – he’s a rare breed.”

The yellow caution tape doubles as a reminder of Lillard’s killer mentality on the court. The D Lillard 2 Yellow Tape features “Do Not” on the right sneaker with “Cross” on the left. The textile upper features a vibrant graphic print filled with sharp yellow and black accents for a colorway that will be hard to miss when worn on-court. The Bounce midsole sees additional speckling to match the eclectic graphic-heavy aesthetic.

“The idea behind yellow tape is that you all see where he’s at today but for us, it’s a reminder of the struggle and the beginning of his journey,” Farr explained. “People need to understand it’s more than just a workout. He was unwanted by colleges and couldn’t play on top AAU teams. He needed adversity to give him a reason to accomplish all that he has. This is how yellow tape began.”
