Caution: The adidas D Lillard 2 Yellow Tape Drops Tomorrow

DAMIAN LILLARD 1 DAMIAN LILLARD 2 DAMIAN LILLARD 3 DAMIAN LILLARD 4 DAMIAN LILLARD 5 DAMIAN LILLARD 6 DAMIAN LILLARD 7 DAMIAN LILLARD 8 DAMIAN LILLARD 9 DAMIAN LILLARD 10 DAMIAN LILLARD 11 DAMIAN LILLARD 13 DAMIAN LILLARD 14 DAMIAN LILLARD 15 DAMIAN LILLARD 16 DAMIAN LILLARD 17 DAMIAN LILLARD 18 DAMIAN LILLARD12 d lillard 2

Heads up D Lillard fans, a brand new colorway of the D Lillard 2 is dropping tomorrow. Officially dubbed the Yellow Tape colorway, let’s take a look at these detailed images of the upcoming drop.

The adidas D Lillard 2 Yellow Tape is said to pay homage to the yellow caution tape that his personal trainer (Chris Farr) used to rope off the court while Lillard was doing his pre-draft workouts. For a better understanding as to how the yellow tape became an inspiration for Lillard’s latest colorway, read what Farr had to say:

?We actually roped off the court with yellow tape after his pre-draft workout in Oakland with NBA scouts. I knew they had never seen a workout like that before but the amazing thing is he still wanted to keep going ? he didn?t want to leave any doubt behind. I always keep a roll of yellow tape in my bag and when I give it to Dame, he understands it?s the ultimate reward. Our yellow tape is a form of motivation to always be better. It?s something Damian and I are both familiar with being from Oakland. I?m humbly blessed to work with a man like him ? he?s a rare breed.?

I guess you could say the yellow tape is sort of a warning or a “heads up” saying that you should not underestimate Lillard, that he’s a force to be reckoned with. His killer mentality on the court make him one of the most dangerous point guards players in the league. Features on the shoe include ?Do Not? on the right sneaker with ?Cross? on the left. It comes with a textile upper with a graphic print that’s filled with sharp Yellow and Black accents. Speckling on the Bounce midsole give the shoe even more of a pop. Releasing tomorrow, pick up the adidas D Lillard 2 Yellow tape for $105.

adidas and Damian Lillard Drop The New D Lillard 2 Yellow Tape Colorway


Damian Lillard ranks among the best point guards in the NBA, a detail that can’t be ignored especially after leading the Portland Trailblazers to the second round of the Western Conference Playoffs despite losing all four of his fellow starters from the previous year. You just can’t doubt or count out Dame, and that’s something that his personal trainer Chris Farr has preached to number 0 since his workouts leading up to the NBA Draft his rookie season. That’s the story that adidas and Damian Lillard will tell with this Saturday’s adidas D Lillard 2 “Yellow Tape” colorway, an homage to the yellow caution tape that Farr roped off the court with during Lillard’s pre-draft workouts.

“We actually roped off the court with yellow tape after his pre-draft workout in Oakland with NBA scouts. I knew they had never seen a workout like that before but the amazing thing is he still wanted to keep going – he didn’t want to leave any doubt behind,” Chris Farr said. “I always keep a roll of yellow tape in my bag and when I give it to Dame, he understands it’s the ultimate reward. Our yellow tape is a form of motivation to always be better. It’s something Damian and I are both familiar with being from Oakland. I’m humbly blessed to work with a man like him – he’s a rare breed.”

The yellow caution tape doubles as a reminder of Lillard’s killer mentality on the court. The D Lillard 2 Yellow Tape features “Do Not” on the right sneaker with “Cross” on the left. The textile upper features a vibrant graphic print filled with sharp yellow and black accents for a colorway that will be hard to miss when worn on-court. The Bounce midsole sees additional speckling to match the eclectic graphic-heavy aesthetic.

“The idea behind yellow tape is that you all see where he’s at today but for us, it’s a reminder of the struggle and the beginning of his journey,” Farr explained. “People need to understand it’s more than just a workout. He was unwanted by colleges and couldn’t play on top AAU teams. He needed adversity to give him a reason to accomplish all that he has. This is how yellow tape began.”

Be sure to check out more detailed photos below and grab your pair of the adidas D Lillard Yellow Tape tomorrow, September 10th for $105 USD exclusively at adidas.com.

Air Jordan 12 Neoprene Releases Tomorrow


This weekend marks the first signs of Jordan Brand’s Fall 2016 release slate thanks to a weather-resistant Air Jordan 12 arriving at retailers. The move to bolster one of the many fan-favorite Jordan retros with a new neoprene construction will prove to be a smart one given the worries of getting your retro Jumpman pick-up dirty in the rain and slush that comes with the months ahead. The Air Jordan 12 “Neoprene” will be available at select shops on Saturday, September 10th for $190.

The Jordan 12 Neoprene ditches the usual bolstered leather construction found on the original pairs from 1997 for a durable neoprene upper paired with a leather mudguard. The all black colorway uses a clean white midsole to match the Gym Red accents on the branding throughout for a decidedly Chicagoan feel. Check out one last detailed look courtesy of Sneaker Politics after the break, and if you can’t wait for Saturday, then secure your size right now on eBay.

Triple Black Boost On The adidas NMD XR1 Releases On September 17th


The Black Boost found on the adidas NMD XR1 “Triple Black” definitely turned some heads when paired with its striped Primeknit upper and matching cage. It was even harder to deal with the fact that the pair was a European exclusive when it released back in late-August, but today we have some good news. The adidas NMD XR1 Triple Black will be available stateside on September 17th in limited quantities.

Today we get an even better look at the NMD XR1 Triple Black complete with additional Core Black/Dark Grey striped laces to match the Beetlejuice-esque pattern found throughout the woven upper. Premium details include a suede tongue patch with embossed trefoil branding, a slimmed down midsole for an even lighter ride that shines thanks to that alternate black color, a matching suede construction on the heel, and a bolstered cage for a lockdown fit. Are you a fan of the latest adidas NMD XR1 offering? Be sure to catch more detailed images below courtesy of Deadstock Canada and head over to our release dates page for an updated look at more future adidas Originals offerings.

Packer Shoes Teases Hall Of Fame Question Release For Allen Iverson

Already dropping some of the best Reebok Question collabs ever, it’s not much of a surprise to see Packer Shoes in on the action for the iconic Allen Iverson signature shoe’s 25th anniversary. Adding to the stable of premium new looks for the Question from we’ve seen throughout the year, Packer presents what is undoubtedly one of the best yet with their “Curtain Call” colorway. Inspired by Iverson’s entrance into the Basketball Hall of Fame, the colorway features nods to his and the Question’s past with nods to the OG red toe and blue toe colorways with the premium nubuck hits at the toe and heel, all against a blacked-out basketball textured leather upper with reflective detailing. Packer also chooses to switch up the branding a bit, with blank heel tabs, and the “Q” logo on the side panels.

Enjoy a preview of the Packer Shoes x Reebok Question here, and stay tuned for a full look and release information.

Adrian Peterson And Deandre Hopkins Unveil The First Ever adidas Yeezy 350 Cleat

YEEZY 350 FOOTBALL CLEATS 2 YEEZY 350 FOOTBALL CLEATS 1

After Von Miller debuted the first ever adidas Yeezy cleats last night in the NFL season opener between the Broncos and the Panthers, two more NFL players will be busting out some new Yeezys this weekend.

Adidas athletes Adrian Peterson (Minnesota Vikings) and Deandre Hopkins (Houston Texans) have took to their social media to unveil the first ever adidas Yeezy 350 cleat. Both players gave us a look at the OG Turtle Dove colorway which has been transformed into a football cleat. It’s still unclear whether or not both players will be wearing these cleats on Sunday, but they just might make an appearance.

Are you a bigger fan of the Yeezy 750 cleat shown by Von Miller or the Yeezy 350 cleat shown by Peterson and Hopkins? Let us know your thoughts down below.

Author’s Take

I think the 350 version looks better simply for the fact that most cleats are low tops. I’m still not sure how that upper would hold up on the field though.

Flannel Makes An Appearance On The Nike Air Force 1

NIKE AIR FORCE 1 1 NIKE AIR FORCE 1 2

As we approach Fall we begin to see new styles such as these new Lumberjack-inspired colorways of the popular Nike Air Force 1.

The classic hoop shoe from the 80’s has now turned into a fashion icon as countless materials and colorways have managed to land on the silhouette. Today we see two new colorways with the first featuring a black leather upper with white accents on the laces, branding, and midsole. The second pair is the brighter of the two and comes equipped with a Hyper Cobalt with accompanying white accents. Both pairs are then finished off with with red/black flannel inner liners, metal eyelets and gum outsoles.

Are you a fan of the Lumberjack look on the Air Force 1? Look for both colorways to release later this Fall.

Author’s Take

Nike should have taken it a step further and should have placed the flannel print somewhere on the upper. Because once you put these on the flannel print essentially disappears.

Will This OG Air Jordan 1 Be Making A Comeback

Jordan Brand released a new clip today showcasing Kawhi Leonard wearing the upcoming Air Jordan 31 Fine Print that is scheduled to release next week. But toward the end of the clip is where things get really interesting.

The video quickly shows the OG Black/White Air Jordan 1 and then quickly switches to the Air Jordan 1. Perhaps it’s to show that the 31 is inspired by the 1? Or maybe it’s because this colorway of the Air Jordan 1 will be making a comeback some time in the near future. Of course Jordan Brand hasn’t announced any type of news regarding this colorway of the Air Jordan 1 just yet, but more information should be dropping soon. Here is the clip.

Stay tuned to Kicks On Fire for updates on this potential release.

Author’s Take

It’s cool to see another OG colorway make a return, but if it does release I don’t plan on picking up a pair. I’m just not a fan of this colorway.

The ACRONYM x Nike Presto Mid In Detail


ACRONYM has made a name for themselves by transforming some of the most coveted Nike retro models with their unique visuals. The polarizing Nike Air Force 1 collaboration turned heads – you either loved or hated the offering given the zipper addition and stunning color blocking but the trio definitely proved that the name ACRONYM was synonymous with serious design chops.

You can expect the same reaction to their ACRONYM x Nike Presto Mid offering, a reworked take on the model once proclaimed as a t-shirt for your feet. The collaboration doubles as a high-fashion autumn-ready collection thanks to an extension of the ankle support, more zippers, a premium leather heel, and three standout colorways that you won’t see anywhere else.

Today we get the best look yet at the ACRONYM Nike Presto Mid in a militaristic Medium Olive, a tonal Bamboo and Black combination, and vibrant Volt/Hot Lava offering. The shoes already dropped at Berlin-based retailers this past Thursday, so hopefully we see a stateside release in the near future. Be sure to check out the full collection after the break and stay tuned for more release date updates right here on Sneaker News.
