Adidas has released some famous name, glow in the dark roller skates.
Dubbed Dame 4 Glow in the Park, they’re inspired by the American basketball player Damian Lillard.
For Lillard, who plays for the Portland Trail Blazers, staying focused and keeping balance in life are what he sees as the keys to creating success on the hardwood.
Along with his love for music and rapping, roller skating has always been a passion dating back to his childhood in Oakland, California.
“When I was younger, we were skating all the time,” he said.
“There were always skates at my grandmother’s house and we’d do that at home.
“When I got to high school, every Saturday we’d drive to the skating rink and we’d be there all night skating. Every weekend that’s how it was. Everybody skated.”
These days however most of the NBA All-Star’s time is spent on the basketball court.
“We put a lot of time in working on our game. But when you think about it, this is the one life you get to live. You’ve got to find other things that interest you,” he said.
“That’s why I do music and that’s why I skate. Because you got to let your mind go other places, create that balance and enjoy it. Skating and rapping is that for me.”
Glow in the Park are available on and Eastbay priced at $115.

A self-confessed geek, he’s not afraid to ask the hard questions - at the risk of sounding silly.
