Just about a week before the start of the 2018 NBA Playoffs, Portland Trail Blazers superstar Damian Lillard is turning up the heat with the Juvenile-inspired latest iteration of his Dame 4 sneaker.

Featuring a flame-red upper, black accents and a glow-in-the-dark gum sole bottom, this edition of the Dame 4 is directly inspired the cover of Juvenile’s Cash Money Records debut 400 Degreez. With its fierce coloring, the latest Dame 4 colorway echoes the intensity and “on fire” mentality Big Game Dame brings to the court in the heat of the NBA postseason.

More than a classic rap album in shoe form, the 400 Degreez edition of the Dame 4 features full-length bounce cushioning that ensures maximum comfort during heated matchups on the hardwood. Additionally, the shoe includes unique grooves designed to accommodate quick changes of direction and the explosive athleticism Dame uses when attacking the paint.

Blending the coloring of a New Orleans rap classic and the functionality of the Dame 4 design, the 400 Degreez colorway blends Dame's love of the hardwood with genuine rap fanhood.

400 Degreez takes me back to my childhood," Dame tells XXL. "Everybody in my neighborhood listened to that album. You could ask 10 different people and they would have 10 different favorite songs. Juvenile was that guy in the late '90s, early 2000s.”

Check out photos of the 400 Degreez Dame 4 colorway below. The shoes are available now at Adidas.com.
