Adidas releases Damian Lillard kicks inspired by infamous PDX carpet
Thursday May 21st, 2015

The latest colorway of Damian Lillard's signature shoe, the D Lillard 1, is inspired by the famous carpeting at Portland's PDX airport.

The carpet is so popular it has its own mascot and Twitter account, and has even inspired fans to get a tattoo of its design.

The sneaker company incorporates both the pattern and teal and purple colors throughout the shoe, according to the press release.

The PDX carpet pattern is printed across the shoe's teal upper while the full-length adiprene+ midsole compliments a purple tonal snakeskin print on the heel, toecap and TECHFIT booty. The purple laces feature flecks of grey and "DAME" is printed on the right tongue while "#PDXCARPET" is printed on the left.
