This is not your typical basketball shoes. It performs just the way Dame Lillard does in his games. It is almost the perfect package for hooping.After trying Dame 1, Dame series always use Bounce technology to make the insole from the second generation. Although the insole of Dame 2 has been made with BOOST, but Bounce insole is undoubtedly the symbol of Dame series. The Adidas Dame 5 also continue this design. From the mainstream products, we can see that Adidas pay high attention to Bounce insole. These juniors’ basketball shoes are made for play fresh out of the box. Built to sit low and designed for quick moves, they feature a soft suede upper and Damian Lillard’s signature style. Flexible cushioning provides lightweight comfort on every step-back jumper. A herringbone outsole lets you change directions on a dime.The performance of insole is in accordance with expectation. It’s punched on the upper of forefoot for ventilation and heat dissipation.But it hasn’t make reinforcement on the forefoot, so the toes can’t be protected well. Dame 5 cancel the integrated design of shoe tongue and vamp, and it also cancel inner sleeve. I couldn’t understand this design.
