Accelerate and Explode. The D Rose 3.5 is here.

The D Rose 3.5 shoe is inspired by Derrick Rose’s dedication and hard work to his game and features adidas’ most innovative performance technology, premium and rich style elements and personal details. 

I know three guys who are salivating to cop these pronto: D-Rose Die-Hard Riki Flores (@rikiflo) of BTV/Magic 89.9 and life-long Bulls fans Chuck Araneta (@chuck_araneta) of the From The Stands Podcast and Jude Turcuato (@jturcuato) of Fox Sports Philippines. Am I right guys?:)

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. 

SPRINTFRAME technology features an external heel counter to reduce weight and allow for energy return and motion control, giving Derrick his best performing signature shoe to date to improve his performance on court. 

The bold spiral overlay pattern is inspired by Derrick’s goal to tighten his game and functionally it increases flexibility and provides optimum toe protection. 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 Derrick’s tattoos and the Chicago flag. Seriously, try watching games in the United Center and you'll know that Chicago is D-Rose's City. Banners, streamers, even game tickets have D-Rose's face on them!

Each colorway of the D Rose 3.5 will feature special graphics, materials and colors that give details about Derrick’s life and style of play.

The three stripes are again featured on the back of the shoe to represent Rose’s speed, and now wrap around the outsole so opponents will see them not only when he drives past them, but also goes over them.

The D Rose 3 launches in the Philippines this February 2013 for PHP 7995 in away (black/white/red) and home (gray/black/red) colorways. The shoe will launch in six additional editions.

Guys, the D Rose 3.5 Away Colorway...gorgeous. Absolutely gorgeous. 

“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,” Rose said. “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.”
