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.
Great colorway, great execution, great story behind the inspiration. Good work, adidas!
