ADIDAS D LILLARD 2 ‘FOOL’S GOLD’ — APRIL 1 AT 10 AM ET
In the mid-1800s, the California Gold Rush brought hundreds of thousands of visitors to the state, hoping to strike it rich. When the initial craze was over, the population dwindled, leaving the state in barren disarray. Those who stayed behind used hard work and gritty persistence to build up the great cities we know today. This gold foil Lillard 2 pays tribute to those who never gave up. Men’s $119.99.
