Today, Thursday, January 24th, the first colorway of the new adidas D Rose 3.5, the Year of the Snake, drops in select stores and online for $180. The adidas D Rose 3.5 is the newest addition to the Derrick Rose signature sneaker line and features improved performance, bolder style and more personal details. Like each shoe released in the 3.0 collection, the 3.5 collection will reveal more insights into Rose’s game and his personal life.

The Year of the Snake is a limited edition release and features a black synthetic SprintWeb upper with a textured scale pattern to represent snakeskin. Metallic gold accents cover the SprintFrame and the base of the shoe to make it pop. The translucent outsole, laces and lining are done in turquoise to represent water, the key element for 2013 Chinese New Year. Inside tongue patch features black, gold and turquoise colors surrounding the D Rose logo in various shapes, symbolic of the shoe’s spiral inspiration.

We’ll take a closer look at the 3.5 next week when the “Home” and “Away” Chicago Bulls officially drop in stores and online on 1/31, but for now, check out the Year of the Snake limited release that drops today in select stores and online for $180.
