Expected ahead of the release of the Sonic the Hedgehog movie, Adidas will drop this Sonic themed Dame 6 silhouette in early 2020.
Designed around basketball player, Damian Lillard’s, signature Dame 6 silhouette, Adidas are collaborating with Sonic the Hedgehog for a Sonic and Knuckles for a new shoe expected to drop ahead of this February’s Sonic movie release.
The shoes come in a blue and red colourway representing Sonic and his video game rival, Knuckles. The outer edge of the heel features a Sonic ‘Spike’ graphic in blue, whilst the inner edge features a similar design in red.
Much of the shoe comes in Sonic blue contrasted with red on the instep and highlighted with yellow lace accents. Gold trim represents the gold rings collected in the classic SEGA games.
It’s the second time a Damian Lillard sneaker has passed reference to the speedy blue Hedgehog. Sonic’s familiar spikes featured on a previous iteration of Lillard’s signature sneakers, the ‘Chasing Rings’ Dame 4 in 2018. Damian Lillard plays point guard for the Portland Trail Blazers basketball team.
Famously delayed three months for a character design overhaul following overwhelming negative fan feedback, the Sonic the Hedgehog movie starring Jim Carrey as Dr. Robotnik will hit cinemas from February 14th 2020 in the U.K and north America.
