Fresh off of winning a gold medal earlier this month at the 2021 Summer Olympic Games in Tokyo, Damian Lillard continues to take advantage of his free time during the offseason. Yesterday, the Portland Trailblazers’ All-Star guard returned to his alma mater — Weber State University — for the school’s fourth annual 4th Alumni Classic game and he wore what could be his next Adidas signature basketball shoe.

Shared by @Weberstatembb on Instagram are images of Lillard wearing what’s believed to be the Adidas Dame 8. The pair donned a Weber State-inspired makeup as the upper features a two-tone color blocking with bright purple covering a majority of the forefoot and neon yellow at the heel. Rounding out the look are the aforementioned hues appearing on the midsole and outsole.

As of now, there’s currently no release date available for the Adidas Dame 8 but expect a formal unveiling of the shoe by the brand once the 2021-22 NBA season rolls around.

UPDATE (12/15): After surfacing on social media this summer, Adidas officially unveiled Lillard’s next signature basketball shoe, the Dame 8. According to the brand, the shoe was conceived with Lillard’s on-court tenacity and boxer mentality in mind as seen with the silhouette’s lightweight Bounce Pro midsole and its unique traction pattern providing energy return, stability, and traction for dynamic on-court movements.

The Adidas Dame 8 will hit shelves in the purple and yellow “4th Qtr K.O.” colorway this Sunday, Dec. 19 at Adidas.com and at select Adidas retailers for $120. Additional makeups including the “Dame Time” and “Respect My Name” styles will be released in 2022.
