It looks like early catalog renderings of the adidas Dame 5 have leaked online.
While nothing official from adidas has been said, the catalog scan features a shoe that is described as the upcoming Dame 5. The shoe’s tech specs are said to include:
- Engineered suede upper for durability and support
- Lateral banking barrier for midfoot stability, control and protection
- Responsive Bounce cushioning for all day comfort
It’s hard to get a good depiction of the shoe with such a simple render, but we think there is a bit more to the model than described. This possible Dame 5 appears to be built like the Harden Vol 2; the forefoot is some type of textile while the rear is where we could see the engineered suede. A compression/sock collar is used as well so there could possibly be a knit featured too.
The traction looks perfect because it’s thick, aggressive, widely spaced herringbone. Can’t really ask for anything else. No storytelling, just traction.
With the inclusion of the lateral barrier (drawn from the Futurecraft 4D basketball shoe), we’re wondering if this means the Dame 4 will be the last adidas basketball shoe that has wearers sit within the midsole. We hope not because it feels amazing while in motion, but the barrier is a nice feature either way.
According to the leaks, this possible adidas Dame 5 will available beginning in February of 2019 for school teams. The shoe might release a bit earlier — we’re thinking around December 2018 — in a couple of energy releases. The best news from this leak is that the shoe’s retail price will remain at an affordable $115.
