Will Adidas Give Damian Lillard A Signature Shoe?
With Lillard doing so well on the Blazers, I am wondering if Adidas will be giving D Lillard a signature model sneaker any time soon? With D. Rose injured again (very unfortunate) it seems like there needs to be a new uprise of Adidas Basketball shoes to really get the sneaker people talking. That means not only a dope design, but a great athlete to sign.
If Adidas doesn’t make any moves for Lillard, I won’t be surprised if he ends up going to Nike eventually. Both companies have a HQ in Oregon, home of the Portland Trailblazers so it would be fitting to get a Blazer on board! As you can see below, Lillard is a long time Nike / Jordan fan as he had these images on his IG before he had any sort of affiliation to Adidas, so will be be swayed towards Nike / Jordan if he doesn’t get a signature shoe? Time will tell I guess, all i can hope for is he gets some type of deal soon!
Adidas Damian Lillard Real Deal (Rookie Of The Year Shoe) came out last year as you can see below, so he had a signature colorway on an existing model, but we want to see an new model made for Lillard!
“The “Endorsed By” t-shirt features a close-up graphic of Damian over a satellite view of his hometown of Oakland, Calif. The “Townbiz” t-shirt is also Oakland inspired, featuring the popular local mantra and a crest with a satellite view of the city and clasped hands to represent the “Fly Guyz” — Damian’s name for his close circle of friends.”
