As Derrick Rose makes steady progress from a knee injury that saw him go down in the playoffs last year and miss all of this season thus far, adidas continues with plans for Rose’s sixth signature shoe: the D Rose 3.5. Comprised of adidas’s most innovative performance technology, premium and rich style elements, and more personal details than its predecessor, the D Rose 3.5 features a bold spiral overlay pattern that is inspired by Derrick’s goal to tighten his game. The synthetic leather upper features the spiral protruding from the D Rose logo on the ankle to represent how his on- and off-court success continues to grow from the support of his family. Chicago call-outs on the inside of the tongue showcase the essence of Rose – including a “Rooted in Chicago” graphic with lettering, colors and shapes inspired by his tattoos, and the Chicago flag. The oversized tongue features a reflective overlay of the logo to illuminate and pop on and off the court. Additional performance additions include an ergonomic ankle collar pocket to ensure maximum support during hard cuts and a breathable mesh tongue to improve comfort. The D Rose 3.5 will be available in home and away colorways online on January 31 for $160 USD. The shoe will launch in six additional colorways through April.
