Later this month, Derrick Rose will make his third appearance in the NBA All-Star Game and will start for the second straight year. The leading vote-getter amongst guards in the Eastern Conference, Rose is averaging 22 points, 8 assists and 3 rebounds a night, leading the Chicago Bulls to the East’s current best record. When D-Rose suits up in Orlando on February 26, look for him to lace up this special “All-Star” colorway of the adidas adiZero Rose 2.5.
Featuring an anodized finish, the “All-Star” Rose 2.5 is dressed in a bright reddish-orange hue known as High Energy, adidas Basketball’s official footwear color for All-Star Weekend 2012. Grey heather lines the interior, while white stripes wrap around the heel. Minimal hits of metallic gold appear on the vamp branding, ROSE logo on the tongue, adiZero pinline, stripe border and miCoach recess. Finishing off the look below is a an orange herringbone traction outsole.
