Wakanda lives on through Damian Lillard‘s fourth signature sneaker. Following the highly coveted collaboration alongside BAPE, the adidas DAME 4 has recently received a custom Black Panther makeover courtesy of @mammothnamedjim. The sneaker gets dipped in black while purple and hints of blue are incorporated in its underlay as a nod to the Vibranium found in the film. You’ll also find details on the lacing reminiscent of the necklace in the movie housed on the tech-filled Black Panther suit. The design is closed out with small Black Panther helmet logos added to each tongue, in addition to “Wakanda Forever” text on the right and left tongues, respectively.

Take a look at the custom job and let us know if you’d cop if they were to drop.

You can also take a look at the symbolism behind the blockbuster film as well.
