With Sunday’s unexpected news that Blake Griffin would require elbow surgery and thus be unavailable for next weekend’s All-Star festivities, the league wasted little time in naming Damian Lillard as his injury replacement.
And shortly thereafter, adidas acted similarly swiftly in releasing the official photos of the All-Star colorway of his signature shoe, the D Lillard 1.
The official release:
“Designed in tandem with the 2015 NBA All-Star uniforms, the D Lillard 1 features a clean white leather upper with white snakeskin texture across the back panel of the shoe, around the midfoot laces and atop the TECHFIT booty. Black accents include the toe cap with tonal snakeskin print and logos on the back of the shoes. The full-length adiprene+ midsole features black splatter print, while the outsole is translucent black. The shoe is finished with metallic gold “Dame” and adidas logo branding across the tongue. “
