Jeremy Scott Just Gave Derrick Rose’s adidas Rose 3.5 Sneaker A Crazy New Look
During the 2012-13 NBA season, Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose didn’t play a single minute. Due to an ACL injury that left him a step slower, he spent the entire season rehabbing and trying to get stronger for the 2013-14 NBA season. But that didn’t stop adidas from releasing the adidas Rose 3 and adidas Rose 3.5 sneaker during the season. It was a pretty popular shoe, too, with adidas doing decent sales when you consider the fact that the guy behind the sneakers didn’t play in any games. And it appears as though adidas is going to continue to push the Rose 3.5 sneaker this summer, albeit with a much, much different look than before.
adidas just gave the Rose 3.5 sneaker a makeover by letting their long-time collaborator Jeremy Scott have his way with it. And as you can see in the shot above, he most definitely had his way with it! The basic design of the Rose 3.5 is still included. But Jeremy Scott covered the entire sneakers in weird cherubs, boomboxes, and dollar signs. We wouldn’t really expect anyone out there to rock these on the court. But these will be worn by those looking to inject a little life into their summer look. They’re much more fashionable than the regular Rose 3.5 and should get a few looks from those who are interested in the fashion world.
These aren’t a joke, either. adidas is really releasing them, and they’re releasing them soon. adidas is planning on sending pairs of the Jeremy Scott x adidas Rose 3.5 out to adidas retailers later this week in time for a July 6 release date. So what do you think about them? Do you like the fact that adidas is making the most of their relationship with Jeremy Scott by getting him to handle the design of the Rose 3.5 sneaker? Or do you think these look too ridiculous for anyone to actually wear them? Let us know what you think about them, and keep an eye out for the latest Rose 3.5 this weekend. We guarantee that you will not miss these if you walk by someone out there wearing them.
