adidas Basketball has now released the latest Dame 4 basketball sneaker, this time taking cues from 1990s rapper Juvenile.

The inspiration for the court kick arrives from the 1998 album 400 Degreez by Juvenile — one of Damian Lillard’s favorite rappers — and comes in a fire red textile upper. Black stripes are found at the rear heel cap along with matching elastic eyelets for the laces, while the sole is gum-colored and glow-in-the-dark. Lastly, red contrasting stripes can be found on the outsole for the last bit of branding.

Pick up your pair for the court this summer for $110 USD over at adidas online, or chase after a pair of the custom Black Panther-inspired Dames; vibranium not included.
