Today Adidas announced the launch of the D Rose 3.5, which will launch worldwide on Jan. 31 for $160.
In a statement released by Adidas, Derrick Rose said; “My main thing is always sharpening up my game and improving my body and with the D Rose 3.5 adidas took that same approach. This shoe takes the best things from my last shoe and made them even better. I’m more comfortable and supported on the court and bringing some real serious style too.”
Rose has done much of his rehab in the Rose 3, but the 3.5 is the shoe he'll most likely be wearing when he makes his return to the court.
The D Rose 3.5 features a bold spiral overlay pattern is inspired by Derrick’s goal to tighten his game. The synthetic leather upper features the spiral protruding from the D Rose logo on the ankle to represent how his on and off-court success continues to grow from the support of his family, who inspired the logo. Chicago call-outs on the inside of the tongue showcase the essence of Rose, including a “Rooted in Chicago” graphic with lettering, colors and shapes inspired by his tattoos and the Chicago flag. The oversized tongue features a reflective overlay of the logo to illuminate and pop on and off the court.
To exceed the performance needs for Derrick’s unique style of play which includes extreme changes in direction, acceleration and explosiveness, adidas designers made the D Rose 3.5 more supportive, comfortable and responsive than its predecessor. The shoe fits even closer to the foot for faster cuts and features a SPRINTWEB upper engineered specifically for his style of play, which reduces weight with maximum support and breathability.
The away (black/white/red) and home (gray/black/red) will be the first two versions our on Jan. 31, with six additional editions through April.
