(ADIDAS) – Paying homage to Portland International Airport’s iconic teal print carpet the shoe is a must have for fans of Damian and all things Portland. The PDX carpet pattern is printed across the shoe’s teal upper while the full-length adiprene+ midsole compliments a purple tonal snakeskin print on the heel, toecap and TECHFIT booty. The purple laces feature flecks of grey and “DAME” is printed on the right tongue while “#PDXCARPET” is printed on the left.
Keep Portland Weird indeed. First reaction might be to hate all over these but gotta keep in mind this is wheelhouse stuff for Portland. Just doing weird shit all the time like it’s the complete norm. Apparently for Portlandians, there are few things more normal than this airport carpet. It’s an actual cultural experience over there..

Despite rumors saying the carpet is set to be demolished in 2015, it seems the people very much want it to stay. If it gets destroyed there may be riots all over Rip City and that means flaming beards at brunch everywhere. Thankfully Damian Lillard is the hero Portlandia deserves and his shoe game may be the saving grace of the city. Kids got jokes for days too! What a cool Kat
