The adidas Rose 3.0 basketball shoe is inspired by Derrick’s humble roots and exciting play. The Rose logo features three petals that revolve around a subtle letter "D" and number "1" in the center. The petal’s sharp edges represent his speed and agility on the court and each one is unique to pay homage to the creative cuts, slashes and shots he makes on the court. The petals also symbolize the foundation that brought Derrick from the playgrounds of Englewood to NBA superstardom - his mother, Brenda, in the center, and his brothers Allen, Reggie and Duane as support. Just as sharp, crafted and lethal as D-Rose's game, these shoes are what separates an MVP from the others. Synthetic leather upper provides optimal light weight and durability and incorporates a unique Sting Ray emboss pattern tying back to the stingray leather used on real katana swords; the preferred weapon of the legendary Samurai warrior. SPRINTFRAME construction provides stability and speed through geometrical research to create a lightweight and supportive basketball chassis. Breathable sandwich mesh tongue incorporates a 3M reflective Black Rose logo while the back details the Rose Family tree with a Chicago word mark. Molded EVA collar adds increased ankle lock down. High rebounding injected EVA midsole offers longer resiliency and response over time. More EVA through the midfoot delivers stronger torsional and midfoot stiffness for side-to-side cuts. PU sockliner brings added cushion and breathability. Non-marking rubber outsole with increased ground contact and enhanced traction gives ultimate grip. miCoach compatible. Wt. 12.6 oz.
