Shoe-Deals and endorsements are a part and parcel of being an NBA Player. However, these added perks come with being one of the best point guards in the NBA.

It’s none other than Damian Lillard who has landed himself a series of endorsement deals and has his own shoe line with Adidas. Lillard has shown keen interest in wrestling over the years, which became evident when he released Stone Cold Steve Austin’s Dame 6’s earlier this year.

Now, Lillard’s Dame 7 ‘Ric Flair’ will feature aesthetics belonging to another legendary wrestler, Ric Flair, who even took to Twitter to show off the vibrant pair.

Brand new Dame 7 showcases Ric Flair

Ric Flair went on social media to announce his latest collaboration with Adidas. These shoes are an interesting and vibrant outlook on NBA All-Star Damian Lillard’s shoes. The professional wrestler signed with the sports-wear giant last year and has come up with a beautiful pair that showcases his personality.

This new release has details like lightweight knit and suede uppers borrowed from Lillard’s previous releases. However, the tongue contains a huge black Damian Lillard logo with Ric Flair’s signature on the sides. The metallic golden patterns on the rest of the shoe are inspired by Ric’s infamous golden wrestling robe.

Along with the picture, Ric wrote, “Thank You Adidas For The Opportunity To Show The World That Stylin’ And Profilin’ With Naitch And Dame Is Even Cooler Than Being Like Mike! WOOOOO! COMING SOON!!! (Damian Lillard) (Adidas)”

Lillard at first come out with a collaboration with artists and released a song that was dedicated to the legendary Kobe Bryant. On top of that, he also has a shoe line that is collaborating with WWE legends.
