Although we have seen pictures of the Dame 6 for some time now, Adidas has only now officially revealed the new silhouette. There were leaked images of the sneaker from stores in china, and Damian Lillard himself was spotted wearing them, so we have been able to form our opinions already, however leaked images are never as good as official pictures, that will show a sneaker from every angle and in higher resolution.
It was safe to say that before the Dame 6 was officially unveiled, from the pictures we had seen, a lot of fans were disappointed, thinking they were a step in the wrong direction, and although the official pictures paint the shoe in a better light, most fans haven’t completely changed their mind.
The Dame 6 has a lower cut than Lillard’s previous shoes, and the upper is constructed out of a breathable mesh. So far, Adidas has unveiled a “Ruthless,” colorway, as well as a “Hecklers,” pack of single-color models, in black, blue, orange and yellow, with haters remarks scribbled across the sneaker.
Damian Lillard has had a very successful career so far and is currently scoring his highest numbers ever, with an average of 29.8 points, 6.8 assists and 4.8 rebounds a game.
The traction seems to be a simple herring bone pattern, which is known to perform well, and the Dame line has produced some great performing sneakers in the past.
Although the looks may not be to every one’s tastes, hopefully this model will be just as good as its predecessors have been on the court, and for only $110, who are we to complain?
