The Lillard 3 is a mid-top featuring mesh construction, a bootie built and adjustable lacing system. Not seen in the initial set of photos was the 3-Stripe branding across the toebox. A muted version of Lillard's logo can be seen on the tongue.
The shoe is stylistically a drastic departure from the critically-acclaimed D Lillard IIs that WearTesters.com have said “might be the best bang for you[r] buck I’ve ever played in”.
While a departure in aesthetics doesn’t mean the shoes will perform any differently, it is a strong stylistic pivot away from what guided the look of the D Lillard IIs in 2015.
