On the courtroom, Damian Lillard hasn’t been off to the beginning he would possibly’ve hoped for within the 2021-22 NBA season, however that isn’t deterring him and his Three Stripes household from introducing the world to the adidas Dame 8.
First teased by the Portland Path Blazers guard throughout an alumni exhibition recreation at Weber State held in August, the mannequin is successfully the model’s first basketball sneaker with sustainability in thoughts – 50% recycled supplies are used throughout the top-half. A mixture of artificial overlays and mesh paneling make up the whole lot of the higher, boasting a form just like the 2 earlier adidas Dame footwear. Coloration-blocking, brand placement and materials structure observe design cues laid out by previous silhouettes, although the upcoming sneakers function extra padding and nods to the Olympic gold medal-winner on the heel. The Dame 8‘s most completely different element from its predecessors is the cushioning answer discovered on the midsole; LIGHTSTRIKE is changed with BOUNCE PRO foam. Whereas the brand new answer guarantees comparable qualities to the one its changing, the dual-density foam delivers a really perfect stability between power return, cushioning and assist, prone to deal with points that come up throughout the finish of the season, or in Lillard’s case, olympic efforts after the common season and playoffs. Lastly, the outsole is barely modified from the Dame 7, although the outermost areas keep the identical tread sample.
