NBA player Damian Lillard collaborated with adidas and clothing brand Oaklandish for his Lillard 1 sneaker line. The signature sneakers are a nod to his hometown of Oakland, California -- representing the city's tree logo on the shoes' tongue and soles.

The 'All Gas, No Breaks' colorway displays those words on the bottom of each sole while the inner sole flashes an "okay" hand symbol. The sneakers are displayed in a cblack, white and yellow palette while their rubber sole has a white and color-speckled design. The TECHFIT tongue provides added support and fit as the entire shoe was originally created with basketball players in mind.

While Damian Lillard is a Portland Trail Blazer, the throw-back collaboration to his hometown is definitely appreciated by original fans in Oakland.
