Damian Lillard finished his sixth season with the Portland Trail Blazers in 2017-18, and it brought the fourth iteration of his shoe, the Dame 4. The Blazers star rocked several different variations of the shoe throughout the year, from a roller-skating inspired edition to a collaboration with fashion brand BAPE that he wore during the NBA All-Star Game. But it wasn’t only Lillard wearing the shoe, as 21 players put on the Dame 4 at one point during the season, according to NBA on ESPN.
One dedicated wearer of the Dame 4 is possible Rookie of the Year Donovan Mitchell. The Utah guard often had fun with customizing his Dame 4’s:

Celtics guard Marcus Smart was another Dame 4 devotee during the season:
Lillard’s shoe placed fourth among signature shoes around the league. Paul George held the top spot with his PG1 shoe, while Kyrie Irving held the No. 2 and 3 spots with his Kyrie 3 and 4, respectively. The Dame 4 finished abouve the shoes of Kevin Durant and Stephen Curry.
