If this tennis ball colorway of the adidas D Lillard 2 looks familiar to you that’s because Damian Lillard was seen wearing the same exact shoe back in July at the Portland Crystal Ballroom.
A month later the adidas D Lillard 2 Tennis Ball is officially unveiled by adidas. Like we previously mentioned, Dame wore this D Lillard 2 during his sold-out first rap show in downtown Portland on July 15. This D Lillard 2 is designed with a felt-like upper in fluorescent yellow but most importantly remains Oakland certified and continues to shine light on his journey to the NBA.
“The reason I wanted make and wear those shoes at my first show was all for my family. When we were kids, we used to play all types of games on these tennis courts around the corner from my grandma’s house in Brookfield,” Dame explained. “When all my cousins and family came out on stage with me, it was like we were back on those tennis courts again.”
The adidas D Lillard 2 Tennis Ball will release in limited quantities on August 30th for $105 exclusively at Foot Locker 34th Street in New York City.
I’m not a huge fan of volt, but the backstory behind this colorway gives a lot more meaning to the shoe. It’s definitely an eye-catcher.
