Damian Lillard’s signature shoe line has been the source of both derision and high praise. The adidas D Lillard 1 was seen as an indicator of Lillard’s marketability, but reviews of the shoe were lackluster. That has not been the case with the D Lillard 2, which some have called the best basketball shoe of this past season.
One of the best colorways of the D Lillard 2 is the third edition of the "Florist City" model.
First introduced back in 2014 when Lillard was wearing the Crazy 1 — that's Kobe's old shoe — this season's version is better than ever. Playing off of the Rose city moniker for Portland, the florist city is a mostly-red affair with touches of leather, webbing, knit, foil, and Continental rubber.
So how does this you feel in person? Does it measure up to the city of Portland? And if you are a Blazers or Lillard fan, should you snag this or any edition of the adidas D Lillard 2?
