After initial renderings of the adidas Dame 5 leaked in May we couldn’t wait to see what the shoe would actually look like. Thanks to some overseas sneaker spies, we have a look what could be the Dame 5.
The possible Dame 5s pictured here closely resemble the official adidas catalog renders we saw in May. The shoe sports a much higher cut than the Dame 4 as well as a true tongue (the Dame 4 was a slip-on) and ribbed knit collar.
Tech specs we can expect include an engineered suede upper, lateral banking barrier for midfoot stability, and full-length Bounce cushioning. If the renders are to be believed, the shoe will feature full-length herringbone traction underfoot. That lateral banking barrier was first seen on the adidas Futurecraft 4D Laceless Basketball concept teased by Marc Dolce, VP and Creative Director at adidas, back in March.
What we do know for sure is that the adidas Dame 5 will retain its excellent bang-for-buck retail price of $115. When we have a release date/window we’ll be sure to update you — early leaks said that school teams would be able to purchase their pairs on February 1, 2019.
If this is in fact the adidas Dame 5, what do you think of it? Let us know in the comments.
