"Start to Finish" Dame 4 drops tomorrow.
Adidas has today unveiled the "Start to Finish" Dame 4, the newest colorway of Damian Lillard's fourth signature sneaker. This particular version of the Dame 4 serves as a nod to Weber State, where Lillard played his college ball from 2008-2012.
Per Adidas, "From start to finish, Dame delivered on the court and in the classroom. He was named Big Sky MVP and earned All-American honors in his final year at Weber State but following his third season in the NBA, Dame went back to school and accomplished the one goal his mother set out for himâ—âgraduating with a degree."
“My proudest moment is when he graduated college. I wouldn’t allow Damian to go to the NBA early until he finished school,” explained his mother Gina. “When they talked me into letting him go months before he was done with school, all I could tell him was ‘You need to make sure you finish. I’m not playing.’ I didn’t even know he was going to back to school and when he told me he graduated, I was so happy because that was the main goal in everything I did for [my kids].”
The "Start to Finish" Adidas Dame 4 features a textured gray upper, clean white outsole and purple accents inspired by Weber State. “25.6.4” is punched out in purple along the lace-band to commemorate the moment in time during his final year that Dame garnered national attention and the eyes of NBA scouts. The Portland Trail Blazers would go on to select Lillard sixth overall in the 2012 NBA Draft.
The "Start to Finish" Adidas Dame 4 is scheduled to released on November 3rd, via adidas.com, for $115.
So far this season, Lillard is averaging 25.4 points, 6 assists and 5.4 rebonds in a little over 36 minutes per game.
The Portland Trail Blazers, 4-4, will host the 3-4 Los Angeles Lakers tonight in the second game of TNT's Thursday night double-header.
