Speaking specifically about the Dame 7, what's your guys' favorite aspect about the shoe?
Lillard: On the gold one I just like the details of the robe that it has on there. I like the fact that it's not just an all-gold shoe. I like how they paid homage to the robe. And then another thing that I really liked about the royal blue pair or the gator pair was just how on the blue one, where one side is my logo and then it's the silhouette of him. But it's the younger version of him. I like it so people know.
Flair: We got to stick with that version.
Lillard: Yeah. Younger, with longer hair, with the shades. I was like, I know exactly what version I'm looking at.
Flair: I appreciate this. You have no idea what it means to me. This is like me taking a step forward in a land that nobody else has ever been in my business. No one's had a shoe. Not Hulk. Steve had one, but a little different than my relationship with you and him. And so I'm just honored. I'm serious. I love basketball. So when this opportunity came around and it's taken a long time with the COVID and all that. And I actually got disappointed that it slowed down the process. To finally have a conversation with you and spend this little moment, it means the world to me. Thank you.
Lillard: No, thank you.
I've just got one more request, Ric, I was wondering if you could cut us a promo about the Dame 7 collab.
Flair: Hey, it's The Nature Boy Ric Flair here via Zoom with the one and only Damian. Wooooo! By God Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers and we are here to tell the world, specifically people in sports, that we are the two greatest at what we've ever done. And today we are limousine riding. We're jet flying, just stealing it. We're wheeling dealing. Damian's going to wear the Dame 7s that he was inspired to design because of The Wooooo! Nature Boy. And together, throughout the universe, we will prevail as the greatest tandem of athletes in the world today. The Nature Boy, Damian Lillard, and the Dame 7s all day. Woo! Woo! Woo!
Lillard: Man, that's too easy.
