If you can’t walk on the famed PDX carpet, you can at least walk with it.
KGW’s Sara Roth reports on shoes so hot you can use them to start the fire at your next backyard barbecue.
They are the newest shoes to be sported by Portland Trail Blazer star Damian Lillard, featuring a colorway inspired by the popular carpet that once covered a wide swath of PDX airport.
The guard unveiled the shoe on Twitter, instantly causing mass jealousy all around the Portland area.
For those with a hankering for carpeted sneakers, here is what you can expect when Adidas brings them to stores:
They say this is the “PDX Carpet colorway of the D Lillard 1,” but all we see is the colors of the Charlotte Hornets.
Now we have visions of playing with a classic team like Larry Johnson and Alonzo Mourning on “NBA Jam.”
NBA nostalgia aside, this iteration of sneaker proves just how immense the outpouring of support was for the now former PDX carpet.
Previously we reported on the madness sparked when the carpet was initially tabbed for replacement.
While the carpet is being updated with a refreshed design, people from all over the world clamored for a carpet that signified they had arrived in the beautiful city.
Months later, we have news, thanks to Solecollector.com, that Adidas would be bringing the shoes to the masses later this month.
That’s some baggage we wouldn’t mind waiting for. However, it doesn’t seem like we will have to be all that patient.
As the video states, the shoes will drop on May 23. Solecollector.com has the retail price at $125, which is a small price to pay for a love that never dies.
