Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Damian Lillard is releasing an affordable $90 basketball shoe in an effort to create a more accessible sneaker for his fanbase.

This offseason the Milwaukee Bucks acquired Damian Lillard in a blockbuster trade that saw the team emerge as potential favorites to win the Eastern Conference. With the dynamic duo of Lillard and Giannis Antetokounmpo, the odds quickly began to shift in their favor.Throughout the first eight games of the season, the Milwaukee Bucks have gone 5-3, tying them for fourth place with the Atlanta Hawks in the Eastern Conference. 


For Lillard, the season has seen him average 24.3 points, 4.7 assists, and 1.1 steals per game over an average of 33.7 minutes.Notably, he has struggled from beyond the arc, shooting a career-low 29.3% from downtown this season. At the same time, Giannis Antetokounmpo has been averaging 28.1 points, 9.4 rebounds, and 1.4 blocks per game while posting an impressive 56.6% field goal percentage.At times, the team has looked like a true championship threat, however, their lack of depth seems to land them in deep water late in games. With a long season ahead, if they find themselves hampered by injuries, their lack of depth could be seriously problematic.

Athletes and fans can shop Lillard's sneaker collection on the adidas website. For the first time in his career, Lillard is teamed up with another All-NBA player in Giannis Antetokounmpo, and the sky is the limit for the Milwaukee Bucks. It's safe to assume that adidas will be by Lillard's side as he makes a run at the Larry O'Brien Trophy.

Although his main line of Damian Lillard signature shoes is still much cheaper than many competitors, the Dame Certified 2 is even cheaper than that.
According to Lillard, he wanted to make sure that his fans had options when buying his shoes. In a post on Instagram made on Thursday, he announced the release, writing:
"I asked adidas to develop another signature line for me that could be sold for $90. I think the Certified 2s turned out great and no one that chooses these will feel like they settled or got left out. I wore em in last night’s win"

Damian Lillard is looking to follow in the steps of other NBA legends such as Shaquille O'Neal by continuing to release an affordable line of shoes. On the heels of his teammate, Giannis Antetokounmpo, releasing $80 shoes through his sneaker line, Lillard has announced another installment of his affordable shoes.

Lillard said, "I’ve always worked with adidas to make sure that my main Dame signature shoes are reasonably priced for the higher-end performance hoop shoe category. Even with that, I realized that some of my fans would still be priced out, so I asked adidas to develop another signature line for me that could be sold for $90."
