All-Star Portland Trailblazers point guard Damian Lillard is bringing his love for the iconic streetwear brand BAPE to his signature sneaker the Dame 4. The three stripes announced a new collaboration with A Bathing Ape (BAPE) that will bring sneaker aficionados three colorways of the Dame 4 featuring BAPE’s iconic shark tooth and camo design.
The idea for the collaboration came to Lillard when he visited BAPE’s flagship store in Tokyo, Japan during his 2015 Adidas tour.
“I became even more inspired by the brand when I visited BAPE’s store in Japan. From that point, I knew I wanted the first major collaboration for my signature line to be with BAPE.”
All the three colorways will make their debut and be available February 16, at adidas’ 747 Warehouse in Los Angeles when gates open at 2:00 pm. Each shoe will cost a reasonable $150 if you can get your hands on a pair at retail price. There is no word on whether you will be able to purchase the shoes anywhere else but on the Adidas site and the green colorway will be available in Brazil in the coming weeks.
