The D Lillard 2 offering from the “Aurora Borealis” collection, which also includes the Derrick Rose “D Rose 6” and Crazylight Boost 2.5, is the first edition of Lillard’s signature shoe designed with woven Primeknit upper and Boost cushioning in the heel.
The footwear collection is inspired by Toronto’s vibrant, cosmopolitan culture and the Northern Lights that paint the sky in upper parts of Canada. Engineered with glow in the dark styling and multicolor Primeknit, the models pair bright color palettes that blend gradient knit textures and purple accents to reflect the Aurora Borealis.
Utilizing the same theme as the aforementioned silhouette, this particular pair is rendered in the brand’s “Aurora Borealis” motif. Taking cues from the natural electrical phenomenon characterized by the appearance of streamers of reddish or greenish light in the sky, usually near the northern or southern magnetic pole, the sneaker is comprised mostly of Red and Purple tones, while glow-in-the-dark accents are implemented on the midsole unit.
The Adidas D Lillard 2 ‘Aurora Borealis’ is designed with a Primeknit woven upper and Boost cushioning. The upper features purple and pink gradient threads as a tribute to the glowing, radiant waves of the Northern Lights. The silhouette matches pink hits along the iced outsole, eyelets and signature details with purple tooling for a vibrant, bold finish.
The Adidas D Lillard 2 ‘Aurora Borealis’ is available.
