Today, adidas officially unveils the limited edition “Chicago Fire” D Rose 3. The bold and bright electricity-colored shoe is inspired by the Chicago Fire Department in Derrick Rose’s hometown.
Featured on the upper of these adidas basketball shoes is a heavy duty rubberized synthetic material that resembles the strong, protective feel and function of a firefighter’s turnout coat. Reflective stripes on the heel and outsole are done in grey to represent the color of the knee and elbow pads on coats and coveralls. The black SPRINTFRAME has a smooth, clean finish to signify rubber fire boots.
The inside of the left tongue features the universal cross symbol of firefighters with the D Rose logo in the middle and the right shoe features a lasered Derrick Rose signature.
Act fast – a very limited run of the “Chicago Fire” adidas Rose 3 is available here starting today.
