Adidas D Lillard 1 “Oakland Rebels”
Adidas has dropped the latest colorway of Damian Lillard's signature shoe, the D Lillard 1, dubbed the "Oakland Rebels" edition.
The sneaker pays homage to the AAU program that helped make the Portland Trail Blazers star who he is today.
The Oakland Rebels never received a shoe deal during Lillard's time with the team, so the players fundraised in their community to have sneakers to play in. Now, Damian supports the program that raised him by donating shoes, uniforms and practice gear.
"The Oakland Rebels helped mold me, so I had to give back to them," he says.
The colorway is inspired by the team's uniform, sporting a sky blue upper alongside a full-length adiprene+ midsole that compliments a red tonal snakeskin print on the heel and toecap. Finally, a royal blue laces feature flecks of red and "DAME" is printed on the right tongue.
