adidas Rose 4 – Sample
adidas Basketball was stuck in quite the sticky juncture at the release of the adidas Rose 3; the shoes were by far the most impressive Rose signatures to date, but with the star player missing the entire season with a knee injury, the shoe never really picked up any steam due to the lack of on-the-court sightings. Seeing the shoes on the feet of the superstar is by far one of the most powerful marketing tools for a signature basketball shoe, but no presence along with a competitive price-tag of $160 resulted in under-performance at retail, but things should change when Derrick gets back on the court. By then, he’ll probably be wearing the adidas Rose 4, for which a sample in a grey/black and red/black is previewed here; it features a similar silhouette as the Rose 3 and appears to use lux materials (pointing to another high MSRP), with stylized perforations, a pronounced heel-counter, and sleek midsole giving the shoe that grown-up appeal. We’ll have more for you when the adidas Rose 4 releases later this year, so check out the extra shot below and stay tuned.
Reminds me of the yeezys which is cool, taking inspiration from another Chicago native and they look lifestyle applicable. Hopefully they'll support roses return
I actually saw these in person...the background picture shown is that sneakershop in Shinjuku AGAIN!
