UPDATE 12/15: adidas has officially unveiled Damian Lillard’s next signature shoe, the Dame 8.
“This shoe is special to me because it reflects a boxer’s mindset – working hard every single day, putting in the extra hours during training and bringing the heat right down to the last second of every game,” Lillard said.
The adidas Dame 8 is built with Lightweight Bounce Pro midsole, a dual-density design that feels soft and light underfoot, with firmer sidewall cushioning for extra stability that gives players the comfort they need for explosive play plus the support for lateral movements. The Dame 8 also includes a unique traction pattern on its rubber outsole that makes quick cuts, pivots, and full-speed stops feel effortless.
Look for the Dame 8 in its Yellow and Purple “4th Quarter K.O.” colorway releases this Sunday, December 19th at adidas.com and at select retailers for $120 USD. The other colorways “4th Quarter K.O.” in Teal, bBack, and White, “Dame Time” in White, Black, and Red, “Respect My Name” in Teal and Magenta will be released in 2022.
