Last November, Adidas teased Portland residents with the possibility of a PDX carpet-pattered shoe when they premiered their Mizxflux customization app. Now the joke has become a reality as Adidas and Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard release the D Lillard 1 PDX Carpet Edition.
The airport carpet, which has been generating social media hype leading up to its replacement, has become a design focus for Portland-affiliated brands, including Keen’s commemorative Yogui PDX.
The D Lillard 1 PDX Carpet Edition features the PDX carpet pattern printed on the shoe’s upper and a purple snakeskin print on the heel.The right tongue is printed with the word “DAME,” and “#PDXCARPET” is printed on the left.
The D Lillard 1 PDX ($125) is available at Foot Locker Washington Square in Portland, and online at Eastbay and Adidas.com.
