Trail Blazers' Damian Lillard Unveils Latest Adidas Sneaker
Trail Blazers G Damian Lillard has unveiled the sixth iteration of his signature line of footwear, the Adidas Dame 6, which will be "available in stores and online in late November," according to Tim Brown of the Portland OREGONIAN. The "Ruthless" colorway "will be the first version of the shoe available in stores on November 29, followed by the 'Hecklers' model dropping on January 18." In a "rare move from footwear companies who churn out signature performance shoes for their athletes each year, the Dame 6 will actually see a price drop with the retail price for the Dame 6 set at $110." Past versions of the shoe have "retailed from $105 to $115, making Lillard's signature model one of the most affordable basketball sneakers on the market" (Portland OREGONIAN, 11/15).
CAST A LINE: FOOTWEAR NEWS' Victor Deng noted the new colorway of Clippers F Kawhi Leonard's New Balance signature basketball sneaker was "inspired by Leonard's love of fishing." Known as the "Baited" New Balance OMN1S, this iteration is the third of seven colorways that will "release over the remainder of the year" (FOOTWEARNEWS.com, 11/14).
