Brand: Adidas

Sneaker: D Lillard 2

Signature athlete: Damian Lillard

Colorway: Static

Story: Fresh off his 51-point performance against the Warriors, Damian Lillard has a new colorway meant to show how he drowns out noise around him to focus on the game. “I don’t need validation—they’ve seen what I can do out there,” Lillard says. “As a man, I’ve grown to rise above it all and block out the noise. I’ll keep pushing, keep working and soon enough they’ll wake up.” The D Lillard 2 Static uses a white and black thread mix for a fuzzing static effect on the upper. Black detailing pairs with white Oak Print accents. Static launches on Feb. 27.
