The winter season is upon us and with the cold weather but adidas is heating things up with a new winter-inspired colorway of the D Rose 3.5 signature sneaker collection. Dubbed “Murray Park Winter Hero” the newest release in the 3.5 line is a “Teal/Purple,” pays homage to the days when Derrick shoveled snow from the Murray Park court in his Englewood neighborhood of Chicago and played through the cold with numb fingers to hone his game.

“This colorway of my shoe is about basketball in Chicago, when you play no matter what,” said Rose. “I lived, ate and slept the game growing up and nothing stopped me from taking the court.”

The purple and blue zest synthetic leather upper represents the cold, snowy Chicago winters. The SPRINTFRAME features a pearlized finish to stand out on the court, while the inside tongue patch features “Englewood” to represent Derrick’s neighborhood.

The “Murray Park Winter” adidas D Rose 3.5 drops today, Thursday, February 21st at Foot Locker and Footlocker.com for $160. Check the Launch Locator here to see which stores are carrying this release. More photo’s and a link to buy can be found after the jump.
