If you’re a Damian Lillard fan, you’ll know that he’s a WWE fanatic. Earlier this year we saw Dame Dolla deliver a Stone Cold Steve Austin edition of his sixth signature adidas sneaker. A year prior he rolled up to an NBA dressed as 3:16 for Halloween, and just this month Dame dropped a royal blue Ric “Nature Boy” Flair colorway of his seventh adidas sneaker. But while that was fairly tame by Flair’s standards, their next-up collaboration truly brings out the stylin’, profilin’, limousine riding, jet flying, kiss-stealing, wheelin’ and dealin’ son of a gun that is Ric Flair in all of his essence.
First previewed by The Nature Boy back in September, this white and gold edition of the adidas Dame 7 “Ric Flair” lives up to the man’s name and then some. The entirety of the white upper is draped in excessively extravagant golden detail in reference to his trademark entrance robes — and even has a silhouette of the Hall of Famer’s trademark pose on the tongue. Other callouts to Flair come through at the heel monogram, graphic insole, and “King of Drip” detail on the rear clip. Completing the design is a full-length translucent outsole — again showing more of the elegant detail beneath.
A release date for the pair has been set for December 11th in the UK, though US residents will have to wait a few days later — December 15th — to get their hands on a pair of these Flairs. Until then, take a look at the official image set here below, and if you are planning on picking up a pair next month, make sure you set yourself a reminder for the release right here on our dedicated adidas Release Dates Calendar.
