Currently holding onto the NBA’s best record with about 15 games left in the regular season, the Chicago Bulls are in prime position to make another deep playoff run. Led by the league’s reigning MVP Derrick Rose, the Bulls are thought to be one of the handful of serious NBA Championship contenders. With Rose’s on-court prowess and a supporting cast that has held down the fort in his absence, are the Bulls poised to bring the O’Brien Trophy back to the Windy City for the first time since the Jordan/Pippen era?

For the upcoming postseason run, adidas Basketball has created a playoff colorway of the adidas adiZero Rose 2.5. Described by adidas Basketball Category Manager Jack Gray as a style that wraps up the concept of takeoff, the “Playoffs” Rose 2.5 features a look inspired by¬†turbulence. The shoe is served up in a mix of black nubuck and Lead Grey patent leather, accented by Scarlet Red on the adiZero pinline and 3-Stripes border on the heel. The midsole is decked out in a print synonymous with Chicago basketball heritage, while a white lower half and grey herringbone outsole wrap things up below.

Get ready for Derrick’s run toward the NBA Championship by picking up his playoff adidas basketball shoes at Eastbay today.
