Kicks and Colors spotlights the variety of colorways—and the stories that go with—that brands’ unveil in key basketball sneakers.
Sneaker: D Lillard 1
Signature athlete: Damian Lillard
Colorway: Team Pack
Story: The D Lillard 1 has graduated to full team status with Adidas releasing four new colorways on Sept. 11 as part of a team pack. Now you can get your tonal snakeprint design and iced outsole with your synthetic leather two-tone upper in royal blue, power red, core black or white.
Each colorway also features this signature #4BarFriday freestyle rap from Lillard:
Oakland Rebel childhood.. working hard but over looked
My story’s inspiration ain’t no secrets I’m an open book
Hardwood back boards the rims don’t even break away
Taught us how to grind... proud to say we learned the Raymond way.
