When Kobe Bryant credits Derrick Rose as just one of two other players in the NBA with that killer instinct, you know you’ve got a bright future in your hands. Derrick Rose has been that much-needed superstar replacement since MJ left the Bulls in ’98, and in his short span with the Red and Black, Rose has already captured the league MVP award as well as the Rookie of the Year trophy. The next step up is obviously an NBA title, and Rose’s second-half shoe, the adidas adiZero Rose 2.5, will certainly help get over the ECF hump and get onto the world’s biggest basketball stage this June. Arriving at adidas Basketball retailers this February 2nd, the adiZero Rose 2.5 (Rose’s fourth official signature shoe with adidas) features a number if unique details, like the satellite view of Derrick’s Englewood neighborhood embossed on the toe-box and the ‘Cleared For Flight’ theme on the insole. Check out Derrick Rose’s video sneaker review of his show as well as detailed angles on this upcoming release and watch for these to hit stores soon!
Hey D-Rose. If you read this, thanks for the pic w/my son at the barbershop on today(saturday). Much love and get better soon man!!!
great he's back on high tops but i hope adidas could make it more safe to use this shoes for Rose, dont want this dude to fall off with his career just because of foot injuries and cost cutting of adidas.
Adidas are horrible!! Havnt looked at D-Rose the same since the Eastern Conference Finals last year when LeBron made him look like a little girl and showed him who the real MVP was!!
amazing basketball player, but horrible shoe reviewer 1 out 10 I'll say he was a 4 on the review.... Its good to see these finally come and my high school basketball team are getting these and Snitch I'm on the team. # water tower swagg gang
Adidas just keep on doing better and better with his line! keep up the good work, and it was smart to lock up my boy for 10 years 250 Mil!
yep, maybe thinner vertical stripes in the back. I would hoop in these, but can't afford to get turf toe and have to take off work.
