Here Are The adidas AdiZero Rose 2.5 Sneakers Derrick Rose Will Wear For The Rest Of The Season
He might be suffering through a bout with turf toe right now, but we’re pretty sure that Derrick Rose is going to be an NBA All-Star this year. Call it a hunch—or the most predictable prediction of all-time—but even if he doesn’t play another game between now and the All-Star Game, NBA fans seem to understand that the guy can play. So they’re going to vote him onto the Eastern Conference All-Star Game and watch him play alongside guys like LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, and Dwyane Wade. Maybe we’re wrong, but…well, let’s face it. We’re not! Derrick Rose is an All-Star. Period.
However, until now, we weren’t sure exactly which sneaker D-Rose would be wearing during said All-Star Game. Luckily, adidas just let us in on the secret by releasing the official images of the adidas AdiZero Rose 2.5 sneakers that the Chicago Bulls point guard will be wearing at the All-Star Game—and for the rest of the NBA season. They’re slightly different from the original AdiZero 2.0 sneakers—adidas has finally given us a few new colorways to work with!—but they’re not dramatically different. So if you liked the 2.0 version, you’ll love these.
Like we said, look for D-Rose to break these out during All-Star Weekend and then to keep them around for the rest of the year. And look for them to hit stores right around the same time. What do you think? Did adidas nail Rose’s personality with these—or do you wish they would have gone back to the drawing board and created something really outrageous for ASW? Either way, we hope Rose gets himself healthy enough to show off his skills in the All-Star Game. With all the talent in the Eastern Conference, it’ll be a real treat to watch him dishing the rock to some of the NBA’s best.
