Two years after being awarded the Rookie of the year title, Derrick Rose became the NBA’s youngest MVP. The Chicago point guard has made a name for himself as an elite athlete who is strong and quick on his feet. Rose needs a shoe that offers the support and traction he needs without slowing him down. In 2008, adidas and Rose were brought together and the rest is history. adidas performance basketball shoes known for exceptionally lightweight construction are the perfect match for Rose’s game.
The D Rose signature series from adidas is made from synthetic materials and features ultra-soft ethylene vinyl acetate (EVA) cushioning and SPRINTFRAME stability. Rose’s signature shoes and clothing pay homage to his family through his signature logo: a rose. The center of the rose is a tribute to his mother, and the three petals surrounding it represent his three brothers.
adidas Rose basketball shoes feature the latest in adidas performance basketball technology. The newest in the D Rose family features a SPRINTWEB upper — a flexible synthetic exoskeleton that is attached to three layers of thin lightweight nylon mesh — which provides excellent support and durability. The upper wraps around the foot and locks it down allowing for sudden stops and quick cuts while holding your foot exactly where it needs to be.
The adidas Rose 3.5 was built on the SprintFrame chassis, which runs from the heel to midfoot and provides exceptional heel-to-toe transition. The SprintFrame is the only thing between the foot and a high-grade injection-molded EVA midsole giving you the right amount of responsive cushioning. The absence of additional liners and materials assists in better court feel by allowing the shoe to flex with your foot. Flex grooves in the outsole provide forefoot flexibility to enable quick cuts on the hardwood.
Not one to shy away from color, adidas is offering the Rose 3.5 in an assortment of eye-catching new colors and patterns. These sneakers are sure to get you looks on and off the court.
