Must See Derrick Rose Videos

Derrick Rose's repertoire of crossovers, dunks and slashes to the basket can be a nightmare for opposing NBA guards. The pre-game mindset for opponents facing him provided inspiration for  adidas's newest D Rose 3 colorway.

The purple, “vertigo” shimmer synthetic leather upper represents the bad dreams opponents have about guarding the NBA's 2011 Most Valuable Player. Other features include a glow-in-the-dark outsole, a black and white speckled midsole and wave-patterned black and white laces. The inside of the tongue features "12-24-12," representing the day this limited edition sneaker drops.

The D Rose 3 “Nightmare” drops Dec. 24 for $180, and is available at adidas Basketball.
