    adidas Dame 5 Basketball Shoes Release Date in the Philippines, Price and other Details

    adidas and Damian Lillard have introduced the "Dame 5." It's the fifth signature shoe of Portland's Ace pointguard.

    The first thing that came into my mind upon looking at the shoe for the first time is that it reminds me of one of my favorite basketball kicks back in the day, the adidas T-Mac Elevate. The elevate's excellent lateral support made sure my crossover would shake defenders and that I stay in control on my way to the basket.

    The elongated lateral mid foot support of the T-Mac shoe was my favorite because it contained my feet really well whenever I move.

    Now, I'm imagining how the Dame 5 extended lateral barrier plus the ever comfortable Bounce cushioning would perform on the court when I get to try it this week.

    The Dame 5 is designed for ultimate control, focused on comfort, stability and traction. And just as Dame controls the court, he is the Master of Ceremonies in his game, life and world.

    Dame is a captain, leader, brother, father and emcee. The Dame 5 represents these unique pieces of his life, creating a collage of who Dame is both on and off the court.

    His latest signature features full-length Bounce cushioning and a lateral banking barrier for on-court stability. The upper is designed with lightweight materials, a padded collar and internal pod system for comfort and support. The silhouette is also constructed with a zonal herringbone traction pattern for enhanced grip and energetic color palettes.

    Dame 5's retail price is 6,000 Php. It will be available beginning February 1 at adidas.com, with additional colorways dropping throughout 2019.

    Here's the detailed release date of the shoe with the corresponding colorways:

    People’s Champ (Feb. 1): Celebrating Dame’s passion for boxing, People’s Champ pulls on both classic boxing elements and Rip City for color inspiration.

    All Skate (Feb. 1): Growing up in Oakland, everybody skated. All Skate takes a different spin on skate culture and one of Dame’s favorite off-court hobbies.

    YKWTII (Feb. 1): Dame Time. Lillard Time. No matter the label, You Know What Time It Is. YKWTII pays homage to one of the league’s most clutch scorers and his infamous celebration.

    Suga Gee (March 1): Honoring Dame’s mom Gina aka Suga Gee with one of her favorite colors

    DameGoose (April 5): Inspired by his favorite childhood bike, DameGoose features unique colors from the one that almost got away. “Somebody stole that bike, and I went searching. We went around the neighborhood and found it. You ain’t keeping this one. That’s ours.”

    La Heem, The Dream (May 3): Designed with black and gold accents, the colorway features “La Heem” and “The Dream” along the heel and outsole. “La Heem is my alter ego. It’s a Muslim word, but it just started cause my cousin would always say La Heem. It [represents] the best of the best. It’s a Muslim word that means to be ahead of or to be passing. It’s kind of [become] my thing. It’s like everything else I do, I’m La Heem.”
