NBA player Damian Lillard has an ongoing collaboration with Adidas, and the latest release, launching today, is called the Glow in the Park Adidas Dame 4. The retro-style sneaker features a phosphorescent sole inspired by Lillard’s passion for roller skating.
Unfortunately, though, this wheeled pair Lillard posted on his Instagram feed were custom-made just for him and aren’t destined for wider distribution.
However, the sneaker skate is actually a trend in its own right. French footwear label Veja got things, ahem, rolling this summer with its snap-on-snap-off collaboration with skate label Flaneurz, and since then, there has even been a high-heel option by Saint Laurent.

The newest take comes courtesy of Acne Studios. This month, the Swedish label launched a limited-edition skate version of its Jimmy sneaker, retailing at $800. The shoes are part of a new capsule line inspired by the traditional American diner.
Look out for a special version by Spring Court launching next year as part of Le Bon Marché’s Let’s Go Logo project.
