Yesterday, we took a look at the new adidas D Rose 3.0 “Away”” Chicago Bulls inspired basketball colorway releasing this October 4th. Today, we’ll take a look at the “Home” version of the shoe, which D Rose will be lacing up at the United Center this upcoming season. While the “Away” shoe features sleek black premium leather construction, the “Home” pair features a textured Aluminum nubuck with a red mesh underlayer visible through breathable diamond-shaped cut-outs along the side panels. The front of the oversized red tongue showcases the new Rose logo on reflective material, while the backside calls-out Rose’s “Windy City” roots, including an illustration of his family tree and the landmark of 73rd and Paulina in the Englewood neighborhood where he grew up. The shoe also features the customary adidas three-Stripes running down the heel through the bottom and highlighted on the front tip.
Looking forward, each Rose 3.0 colorway released in the collection will be unique on its own and feature special colors, materials and graphic work on the backside of the tongues to give fans insight into his life. And for those of you out there who model your game after D Rose this is definitely the shoe for you. The adidas design team worked closely with Rose to develop a shoe molded for his foot and style of play, which involves extreme changes in direction, acceleration and explosiveness. The snug fit ensures minimal foot movement and maximum efficiency, comfort and control to make one of the most agile and quick players in the league even faster and more elusive.
The adidas Rose 3.0 “Home” will release at Foot Locker stores and on Footlocker.com for $160 starting Thursday, October 4th. You can pre-order here on Footlocker.com.
