adidas continues to kill it with great colorways showcasing an off-court edge to its on-court lineup.
This colorway of the Dame 3 has been dubbed ‘West Campus’ as Dame himself states: “West Campus is where we practiced with Coach Young lifting those bricks. It was an abandoned building, but they had a gym in there that we could use for free. It’s just funny because that was normal for us. That’s where it all started.”
While retaining the storytelling element, none of the colorways we’ve seen give off a cheesy or childish vibe. These could have no story attached to them at all because at the core of things it’s just a clean colorway.
As for the small details of the color placement, the colorway’s off-white upper pays homage to the gym walls while cargo detailing and burgundy accents are meant to represent the wooden backboards, unfinished floors and aging bleachers of West Campus at Berkley Adult School where Damian’s AAU team would practice.
