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!
