“It’s very important to understand all aspects of the shoemaking process.”

adidas Originals designer Ilka Liebmann emphasized the influence of longtime Three Stripes creative contributor Markus Thaler in a new video that details the process by which Thaler delegated and brought to fruition a new pack of collaborative releases. In ‘The Legacy of Craftsmanship’, we see young designers learning from the aged master how to best realize concepts created for adi-reppers Derrick Rose, Lionel Messi, Snoop Dogg and Caroline Wozniacki. The respective output of adidas Originals Torsion Attitude, Samba, Pro Shell and Courtstars are highly expressive and personalized, and reflect the dedication to excellence that made Thaler’s 40-plus years and the Originals line’s first decade so successful. Stick with Sneaker News to find out when these release and check out the full video below in the meantime.

adidas Rose 3 – Official Launch

September 13th, 2012 by | 8 comments

adidas rose 3 sneaker launch 1 adidas Rose 3   Official Launch

The location – the Chicago Illuminating Company in Chicago , IL. The guests – Derrick Rose, his family, and the adidas Basketball Team. The focus – the launch of the adidas Rose 3 and the adidas Rose Apparel Collection. The adidas Rose 3 marks the the third overall installment of the adidas Derrick Rose signature line, but this one arrives at a tricky time. As you all know, Derrick Rose is still recovering from a serious injury, but what may be devastating to one player is just another challenge to D-Rose. The progress he’s made, as documented by the documentary series known as ‘The Return of Derrick Rose’, will only lead to harder, better, faster, and stronger Rose once he returns.

During the media presentation, adidas Global Basketball VP Lawrence Norman, joined by Derrick Rose and adidas Basketball designer Rob Lee, laid out the groundwork of the adidas Rose 3, the adidas Rose Apparel line, and documentary series; as part of the presentation, the first episode of ‘The Return of Derrick Rose’ was shown, and almost immediately, Derrick Rose – a typically stoic, emotionless, and all-business individual – broke down in soft tears. Tears of sadness? Perhaps, but it was a sheer combination of his determination, passion, and love for his family (the Rose logo is a tribute to his three brothers and his mother at the center) that reminded him why he’s one of the greatest athletes in the world and why he’s going to be better than ever.

The shoes: easily the most luxurious adidas Rose we’ve ever seen. Featuring a leather upper, quilted sockliner, and Rose graphics on the inner tongue, the adidas Rose design is inspired by Derrick’s roots in Englewood (73rd St. and Paulina) and his playing days in Murray Park. The Rose 3 releases on October 4th with an MSRP of $160, but we’ll have more detailed images of the adidas Rose 3 and the adidas Rose Apparel Line as well as one-on-one interviews with Lawrence Norman, Rob Lee, and Apparel designer Travis Blasingame soon, so check out the adidas Rose 3 Media Launch Event below and stay tuned for more from this milestone occasion by adidas Basketball.

adidas’ The Return of D-Rose series is back, again chronicling Rose’s road to recovery following that unfortunate injury that took him out of the 2012 NBA Playoffs, and pretty much took the whole Chicago Bulls out as a result. This time around, he talks about his hiatus following the injury and stepping away from basketball, unable to hold much interest in the remainder of the post-season due to the sour way it ended for him. Of course tying in with the episode title Rose had hope even then, electing to get together with an elite training team to build himself back into playing condition. Click through to check out the latest episode and tell us how monumental you think #TheReturn will indeed be once the NBA season gets going.

“It’s been tough, but I’ll be alright. I know it’s gonna help me in the long run.”

Sports mean so many things to so many people, and one of the key things they provide to our culture is evidence that perseverance can triumph over adversity. adidas recognizes that the tenacity that made Derrick Rose the NBA’s youngest-ever MVP will drive his return following a gruesome knee injury during the Playoffs, and they’re taking the opportunity to chronicle D-Rose’s journey back to the United Center hardwood in a series of videos the word ‘inspiring’ doesn’t quite do justice. Have a look at the first full episode of “The Return of D Rose” after the jump, let us know what you think about his ‘Belief’ and stick with Sneaker News for episode two.

One week ago, adidas Basketball presented ‘The Return of Derrick Rose‘, a sixty-second look at the youngest-ever NBA MVP’s road to recovery after he proved too explosive not just for the rest of the league, but also his own knee ligaments. Three Stripes reminded us there’s something inside D-Rose that just can’t be stopped (how many people can manage a dumbbell weighted sliding cossack lunge even at 100%?), and now we get another look at the third signature model from the adiRose line that’ll be waiting for him upon returning to United Center.  The adidas adiZero Rose 3.0 brings us vertical heel (and outsole) Stripes along with a new cyclonic tongue logo on a heavily ventilated and otherwise unbranded  Sprint Web silhouette.  These are expected to arrive at Chinese retailers in early October, so click through to see some additional images and stick with Sneaker News for the US release date.
