Yesterday, adidas Basketball hosted a global media group in Las Vegas for their biggest technical innovation in years. Following 2013's introduction of adidas Boost technology to the world of running, the celebrated cushioning is now bouncing onto the hardwood.

With help from adidas Design Director Robbie Fuller and All-Star guards Derrick Rose and Damian Lillard, it was announced that adidas Boost technology would come to both the D Rose and Crazylight franchises. The adidas D Rose 5 features Boost at full strength, backed by the signature styling associated with the D Rose line.
