There is exciting shoe news for Portland Trail Blazers fans! Coming up this February, Blazer’s point guard Damian Lillard will be adidas basketball’s next signature athlete, with his own custom designed shoes named adidas D Lillard 1’s. Even better, Ariaprene is proud to contribute to these new kicks as our non-toxic material makes up the booties, allowing supportive cushion and responsiveness.

The D Lillard 1’s are low-tops, one of the features making them very different than many other adidas signature basketball shoes for its time. They are equipped with SprintFrame support and TechFit flexibility for easy movement on and off the court. With buyers in mind, Lillard wanted the design to be more simple with less cushioning than other athletic designs in order to keep the price lower. What we love most about the shoes? Synthetic foam material on the upper part for eco-friendly stretch and compression, as well as our environmentally friendly mesh perforated package, making the shoes very lightweight and breathable to boot.

It is highly likely that the first pair of the Lillard 1’s will feature the Blazer’s color scheme with black, white and red, and all shoes will have a “D” logo never seen before for “Dame.” The official release date for the D Lillard 1’s is February 6th, 2015, so stay tuned to get your pair!
