Fans of comic books, video games and basketball will all want to get their hands on Adidas’ new sneaker.
A first look has emerged at the Sonic the Hedgehog x Adidas Dame 6, a Sonic-themed version of Portland Trailblazer Damian Lillard’s signature shoe.
The Sonic the Hedgehog x Adidas Dame 6 features a graphic of Sonic’s spikes printed on the heel. Half the two-tone upper is made in Sonic’s signature bright blue; the other half is executed in red, a similar shade to that of Sonic’s rival, Knuckles.
The Dame 6 silhouette is designed with on-court performance in mind, featuring a socklike fit, Lightstrike cushioning and a webbed lacing system. It is lightweight and meant to be breathable, with a rubber outsole to prevent slippage on the hardwood.
While Adidas has yet to reveal official release information, the shoe is rumored to be coming out in February, to align with the Feb. 14 film release of “Sonic: The Hedgehog.” Likewise, pricing has also not been announced yet; current colorways of the Dame 6 are available on Adidas.com for $110.

The baller signed a four-year contract extension with the Trailblazers this spring worth a total $191 million.
