The side of the shoes feature lyrics from Lillard’s song ‘Blacklist’ - “We just strivin’ for equality, acknowledge me.”


Lillard’s ‘Dame D.O.L.L.A’ logo is found on the tongue of the shoe.

Each Foot Locker and Adidas sneaker will “celebrate the positive impact they have had on others, and the undeniable influence each continue to have on-and-off the court/field/diamond.”
