Alongside the J Wall 2, the adidas D Lillard 2 will also celebrate Black History Month this year and utilizing the same theme of paying homage to legendary African-American track and field athlete, Jesse Owens, who won four gold medals during the 1936 Berlin Olympics.

Just like the aforementioned pair, this BHM variation of the silhouette flaunts a golden foil-like detail across its upper. White suede overlays along its eye stays and rear portion offer additional premium flair, while the pristine hue is continued towards its tongue, laces and sole unit.

Further detailed with ‘733’ branding on the tongue as a nod to Owens’ number during the games, this limited edition silhouette is expected to arrive at select adidas locations very soon. Stay tuned in to KicksOnFire for an official release date.

I definitely like this pair more than the J Wall 2. This silhouette is a lot sleeker and of course, the color combo is appealing. Great tribute overall.
