Dame Lilly a.k.a. Damian Lillard may color up in the old Toronto Raptors hues in his new adidas D Lillard 2 Aurora Borealis, but he’s a Portland Trail Blazer through and through.

See his special edition All-Star shoe paying homage to the Northern Lights and the former Raptors colors for 2016 NBA All-Star Toronto, courtesy of our friends at adidas.

adidas unveiled the D Lillard 2 edition of the Aurora Borealis collection to celebrate NBA All-Star Weekend in Toronto. The collection also features D Rose 6 and Crazylight Boost 2.5 editions.

The footwear collection is inspired by Toronto’s vibrant, cosmopolitan culture and the Northern Lights that paint the sky in upper parts of Canada. Engineered with glow in the dark styling and multicolor Primeknit, the models pair bright color palettes that blend gradient knit textures and purple accents to reflect the Aurora Borealis.

Each model comes equipped with a Primeknit upper and Boost cushioning for enhanced breathability, comfort and performance on the court.

The D Lillard 2 Aurora Borealis is designed with a Primeknit woven upper and Boost cushioning. The upper features purple and pink gradient threads as a tribute to the glowing, radiant waves of the Northern Lights. The silhouette matches pink hits along the iced outsole, eyelets and signature details with purple tooling for a vibrant, bold finish.

The D Lillard 2 ($115), D Rose 6 ($140) and Crazylight Boost 2.5 ($125) launch at in early 2016.
