Derrick Rose Reviews His adidas adiZero Rose Sneaker

October 19, 2010

Must See Basketball Videos

The Chicago BullsDerrick Rose just got a half-step quicker with his brand-new signature shoe, the adidas adiZero Rose.

“My first pair of adidas were in college,” D-Rose says. “They were Pro Models.”

Now, the Bulls point guard can lay claim to having the lightest adidas basketball sneaker in the NBA, at just 12.9 ounces. Rose says, “I am glad to call this my first shoe. It is very light, and I am going to be (much) faster on the court.”

For information on the newest generation of Rose's adiZero, read up on “The Bull.”

Despite its light weight,  the adiZero Rose provides the stability and comfort every baller needs to dominate by having a strong mid- and outsole, along with Rose's signature Speedwrap ankle braces for total ankle support.

Heat is released through basketball-specific SPRINTSKIN on the medial side of the shoe, and the heel is locked down by an internal fit collar incorporating adidas’ basketball-specific GEOFIT.
