Adidas unveiled Friday a "Rose City" edition of their Crazy 1 sneakers for Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard. The sneakers are accompanied by a Portland-centric collection of gear as well.
Damian's Rose City edition Crazy 1 pays homage to Portland's famous rose gardens and Rose Festival with a rose print on the upper and laces and green detailing mirrored after the flower's stem.
Socks feature a sublimated floral print and iconic Portland landmarks while the sweatshirts designed in partnership with Portland based Bridge & Burn feature Lillard specific detailing on the sleeve.
Here's a look at both the shoes and gear. Click on the images to enlarge them.
Lillard and Washington Wizards guard John Wall will be at the Compound Gallery on March 19 from 7-9 p.m. to sign autographs. The shoes will be available at the Compound Gallery and on adidas.com on March 19 and they retail for $125.
Last year, Adidas unveiled a special edition "Rookie of the Year" shoe for Lillard, and the company also went with a black-and-red themed look for Lillard's All-Star Game sneakers this year.
Chris Haynes of CSNNW.com reported back in February that Lillard plans to opt out of his contract with Adidas at the end of this season to test the waters.
