“Ruthless” can be used to describe two things keeping Damian Lillard occupied – his diss track against NBA great Shaquille O’neal, and the colorway for his upcoming new signature shoe. For NBA Media Day, the Portland Trailblazers clutch-god debuted the adidas Dame 6 shoe in a vibrant colorway with a bold moniker painted onto the medial midsole. This low-cut model features a breathable upper with a deconstructed package that features a mesh overlay on the lateral side, thick ribbons that extend into the lace-loops, an exterior plating at the achilles, and exposed stitching. Even the outsole features a split color-blocking as the lateral outrigger of the sole makes use of a bright crimson and black camo-style arrangement. As for a release, it appears we’ll have to wait until at least late November as several iterations of his current model, the Dame 5, are scheduled to hit stores. Check out the closer shots ahead and stay tuned for an official announcement from the brand.
