To celebrate their first major release of 2017, adidas brought the heat to Portland on Thursday for night one of their Dame 3 launch activities this weekend. Held at Flex Space Portland, adidas outfitted the venue with an indoor court for guests to put the Dame 3s to work, a pop-up shop for purchases of 3 new colorways (including ones celebrating Black History Month and Chinese New Year), and a live art installation and lyric wall.
Those in attendance were also treated to performances from local artists Jon Belz, Mic Capes and Portland native, Aminé. In addition to a slowed down version of Frank Ocean’s “Novacane,” Aminé, of course, performed his banger “Caroline” to wrap up the night.
