Derrick Rose and his Chicago Bulls were derailed by the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference Finals, but to suggest that this was the third year point guard’s best NBA season so far is a gross understatement. D-Rose led the Bulls to 60 wins, becoming the NBA’s youngest ever MVP along the way and helping to revitalize adidas Basketball’s standing in the league. He switched sneakers in the middle of the regular season, and now we have our first look at the lowtop version of his upgraded signature, the adidas adiZero Rose 1.5 Low. These are almost like Three Stripes’ answer to the LeBron 8 V2 Low, their synthetic SprintSkin uppers even lighter with the below-the-ankle cut. Click through for closer looks at Chicago and Orlando-style colorways from EST and if you like what you see, both colorways are available now on eBay.

If yesterday’s performance was any indication, we very well might see Derrick Rose dethrone LeBron James as this year’s NBA Most Valuable Player. D-Rose is enjoying a career year that includes his best stats so far and easily his best campaign in terms of signature sneakers. Rose had not one but two special edition kicks for the All-Star Game and will now break out a St. Patrick’s Day edition adidas adiZero Rose 1.5 for next week’s holiday. These joints are done in a tonal green mix of suede and SprintSkin, a luxurious performance-oriented look that rivals the LeBron 8 V1′s SVSM colorway profiled yesterday on Sneaker News. We always thought it’d be LeBron vs. Carmelo or maybe LeBron vs. Wade that’d define the league but when it comes to explosive point guard play, a rose by any other name simply can’t compete. Click through to see more of the St. Paddy’s Day adiZero Rose 1.5 and grab yours today from Kicks-Crew.
