Before he became the mayor of Rip City, Damian Lillard was the product of Brookfield Village, the East Oakland neighborhood he grew up in. Now, adidas is paying tribute to Lillard's Bay Area background with a special colorway of the D Lillard 2.
Dubbed "Fool's Gold," the metallic gold make-up is inspired by the California Gold Rush. As the brand's official press release states, many people traveled to the to the area in hopes of getting rich quick, but it was those who stuck around after the fact that built up the cities with hard work and persistence — a constant theme in Lillard's message. The Lillard 2 is styled in gold foil, with matte-finished grey accents and an ice green outsole.
