Upon his entrance into the NBA during the 2012-13 NBA season, Damian Lillard has been one of the most criminally underrated hoopers in the entire league. In his first six seasons, he has averaged 27 points with nearly seven assists to go along with low turnover numbers and a strong shooting percentage for someone who takes nearly 18 shots per game. Due to the overpacked Western Conference, Dame has become a perennial all-star snub on, as he can certainly make an argument to partake in the mid-season classic each and every season.
While the NBA world might be sleeping on Big Game Dame, adidas has stayed woke, as he is one of the top endorsers for the brand as far as basketball shoes are concerned with the star ready to flip the page to his fifth signature sneaker. Much like the adidas Dame 4, it features a mid-cut construction with a jagged sole pattern for extra traction and durability on the court. A sock-like ankle collar and a flexible upper allow the wearer ultimate comfort both on and off the court as well. Its most interesting design element comes by way of a semi-translucent midfoot bumper that stretches the majority of its lateral side and sits about a half-inch above the outsole – potentially for added stability. It appears that the Three Stripes will getting experimental with its colorways as you can see from the number of boisterous options below that included abstract patterns and unconventional color blocking – including a potential lifestyle variety done up in leather. No specific release information is available just yet, but check out this detailed look here and tell us your thoughts on the brand new adidas Dame 5.
