Today we’re excited to unveil the adidas D Rose 4.5 signature basketball shoe – the latest in a line of premium and personal signature products designed for Chicago Bulls point guard, Derrick Rose. We are all hoping to see D Rose back on the court soon, and when he does he will take the floor this latest release from adidas basketball.
While the D Rose 4 represented Derrick’s on and off-court personalities, the D Rose 4.5 design pays tribute to his attacking and relentless on-court play. The shoe features an all-new hybrid skin upper design that has a functional and stylish pattern representing the fastest and most unique animals on the planet while meeting Derrick’s high standards of style. The hybrid skin upper of SPRINTWEB and SPRINTSKIN enhances support on the lateral side of the shoe while working with the Crazyquick outsole on the medial side for ultimate performance. In addition to the performance features, each new colorway showcases special, personal graphics on the inside of the tongue including tributes to Chicago and his family and career. A special lace jewel on the bottom lace featuring the “ROSE” wordmark adds additional flair and style.
The adidas D Rose 4.5 launches tomorrow, January 30th, in stores and online in two new “Tigers” and “Bulls” colorways for $140. Check out images below and let us know what you think of the shoe in the comments.
