In commemoration of his Rookie of the Year award, adidas has crafted a special edition of the '90s classic Real Deal for Damian Lillard. The detail on these is top notch, starting with the lining that bears Lillard's Twitter handle, a satellite print of his native Oakland and "9800s" to coincide with his neighborhood block. Then we note the overall colorway, which represents his high school (purple), college (red) and NBA (black) squads. The animal print is a nod to both his high school and college Wildcat mascots to furthermore round out the commemorative release. A drop is scheduled for May 23, although you can pre-order a pair today through adidas.com. Retail is $120 and quantity is limited to 510 pairs.
