ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Over the weekend, adidas dropped a bunch of Derrick Rose stuff just in time to remind us that the former MVP is about to come back to the NBA at full strength, and he has a little something to prove. (To begin with, check the video above, which shows Rose at the top of his game.)
And when he comes back, he’ll be wearing the D Rose 4, Rose’s latest signature shoe from adidas. The feature that will most likely catch eyes right off the bat is the vertical line running down the side of the shoe, which is intended to reflect Rose’s distinct on- and off-court personalities. According to adidas, “With tough and strong materials and innovative technology, the back heel was designed to highlight Derrick’s game and enhance his explosive and attacking style of play. The front of the shoe, made with premium materials and a sleek, clean design, represents Derrick’s relaxed and understated off-court style.”
Along with the shoe, look for a signature apparel collection. The D Rose 4 launches at adidas.com on October 10 for $140, in three different colorways. Five other editions will launch through the end of the year.
