Fitting for an MVP-worthy NBA season, adidas has introduced another Derrick Rose signature shoe for the All-Star point guard to wear during the second half of the season. Rose is set to debut the adiZero Rose 1.5 in this Sunday’s NBA All-Star Game in Los Angles. Prior to seeing Derrick shred defenses in the 1.5, you can grab a pair for yourself at Eastbay.
The adiZero Rose 1.5 is said to be lighter and more supportive than its predecessor, the adiZero Rose. The shoe features SprintSkin construction on the upper, which is engineered to provide optimum reinforcement, superior breathability and increased durability. Three SprintSkin-paneled zones have been incorporated into the design, each representing his brothers Reggie, Allan and Dwayne.
Engineered to easily handle the fit, torsion and stability, the Sprint Frame combines the heel counter and shank plate into a single nylon chassis. Below, a PureMotion midsole keeps the shoe lightweight and responsive, while Cilia herringbone provides multi-directional traction.
