You WearTesters readers really let your opinion be heard in the comments section of first look at the D Lillard 1, Damian Lillard’s first signature shoe. You guys talked about concerns, what the shoe looks like, but mostly, why the shoe doesn’t utilize the adidas Boost technology. The Trail Blazers digital reporter, Casey Holdahl caught up with Damian Lillard addressing all those concerns including the Boost topic:
“You see some people have come out with shoes and they didn’t want their shoes to be expensive … That was big for me,” said Lillard. “I really like the Boost in the shoes I wear now, but the shoe would have been, I think, a lot more expensive. I think like $50 or $60 more expensive and I didn’t want it to be that way. I wanted it to be at a reasonable price, especially for my first shoe. The crowd that I really want to be able to wear my shoe, I want them to be able to afford it.”
Lillard also goes into the comparisons of the D Lillard 1 to other sneakers, as well as his thoughts behind the logo. Check out the full article HERE.
