Even through all his successes (All-Pro, All-Star and Rookie of the Year), Damian Lillard has remained humble and connected to those that helped him along his journey. The Men's adidas Dame 3 Basketball Shoes are all about paying homage to that support system. The outsole traction pattern features Dame's hometown coordinates and initials of some of his family members. “Wearing the Letter O” is printed on the left sockliner which is not only a callout to his debut album (The Letter O), but it also signifies the three most important locations in his career Oakland (hometown), Ogden (college) and Oregon (NBA). Lillard has rapped about how his life has been like a jigsaw puzzle, the adidas Dame 3 really puts all of the pieces together.
