Along with his contributions on the court, Trail Blazers star Damian Lillard is a burgeoning music artist and frontman for Adidas’ basketball apparel. Lillard, a signature-shoe athlete since 2015, was included on a list featuring his current competition. Sports Illustrated’s Jarrel Harris ranked the introductory sneaker of every current star, and Lillard’s “Dame 1” placed in the middle of the pack.

Coming in at No. 13 on the list, Harris said this about Lillard’s debut shoe:

Damian Lillard joined Adidas in 2014 and has been one of the brand’s biggest endorsers. The Dame 1 offered a sleek look that was unseen with modern Adidas hoop shoes and the affordable price tag ($105) was a plus.

Unsurprisingly, LeBron James’ debut took home the top spot on the list. Equally predictable, Lonzo Ball’s “Zo2” finished last.
