Ever since the launch of adidas‘s BOOST runners, BOOST technology has been crowned as the jewel of the brand. BOOST-infused sneakers are still amongst the best out there and majority of basketball players who have signed with adidas — such as James Harden and Derrick Rose — have incorporated the tech into their respective silhouettes. One player though, remains off the bandwagon by not using BOOST in his basketball sneakers: Damian Lillard’s upcoming adidas Dame 4, which is scheduled to drop on October 6, is staying with the Bounce cushioning.
A Twitter user asked Lillard why his sneaker doesn’t have BOOST — the Dame offered a good explanation back. Check it out below.
@Dame_Lillard Bruh I like what you're doing with your kicks but why haven't you added the boost technology I am curious?
