In the context of Bulls point guard Derrick Rose, and especially in Chicago, any mention of a ‘nightmare’ will have you hearing Kevin Harlan’s ‘dagger’ of a call that signaled the fall of the Eastern Conference’s #1 seed and their great young leader. D-Rose’s knee is getting stronger as we’ve seen from Three Stripes ongoing support and they’ll keep it up by issuing themed colorways even before he can get back on the court. The adidas Rose 3 ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’ puts a playful spin on a morbid theme, applying a color scheme inspired by the poster art for Tim Burton‘s breakthrough animated film, plus sublimated graphics across the upper. They’ve got ’12-24-12’ embroidery on the inner tongue (which is actually an off day as the Bulls get ready to host Houston on Christmas Day) in reference to the movie’s setting and the release date; will you grab these purple Rose 3s even with all the other Christmastime releases (including one Bulls release that’s among the year’s biggest)? Let us know what you think about adidas spinning a silver lining as their biggest star continues his rehab and stick with Sneaker News for updates.
They aren't bad..but more could def have been done. This and the gray D Rose 3 are the best colors so far imo.
