It’s been ten years since Derrick Rose became the youngest player to win the NBA MVP award at the age of 22 and adidas is bringing back the midseason signature sneaker for Derrick, the adidas D Rose 1.5 which he wore in his MVP season.
The sneaker returns with slight updates, such as Lightstrike being used for cushioning instead of adiprene+ that was in the OG. Sprintskin and Sprintframe is used on the upper for stability, flexibility, and breathability with a patent leather toe seen in white. The aggressive heel counter features the 3 Stripes going down into the midsole with Rose’s signature seen throughout the sneaker. The detached outsole features the 3 Stripes on the heel with a white forefoot outsole with translucent pods on the high wear areas of the forefoot.
The adidas D Rose 1.5 is set to drop on December 15th on adidas.com and at select retailers with a $150 price tag. Check out the official photos below and let us know if these are a hooping option for you on Twitter and Instagram.
