Wallpaper: adidas adiZero Rose All Star Game

words_Nick Engvall

Derrick Rose’s adidas signature line continues to grow with another bright colorway designed for Rose’s trip to the Staple’s Center in Los Angeles next month for the 2011 NBA All Star Game. Derrick Rose’s first shoe in what will likely be a long line of signature models has helped Rose to achieve the best numbers of his young career. Rose has improved this season in nearly every statistical category including points, assists, rebounds, steals, blocks, and probably most important, three point field goal percentage. With Rose’s threat a legitimate concern from outside, defenders will need to play close defense, making his quickness attacking the basket makes him more dangerous than ever for opponents.

One of the highest scoring shoes from this year’s basketball shoes, Derrick’s signature model the adidas adiZero Rose scored an A- in our Performance Review with “Simply put, it has some of the best court feel I’ve ever experienced.” This bright yellow colorway will take its place on the feet of the leader of the Chicago Bulls as he looks to lead the Eastern Conference All Star Team to victory. Sprintskin technology helps keep the weight of the adidas adiZero Rose one of the lightest basketball shoes available. Adiprene cushioning is combined with Pure Motion Pods, adidas’ Torsion System, and Cilia Traction surface to create one of the best basketball shoes of the year.

Available at Eastbay in February.

    These can’t be the All-Star shoes. He’s gonna be wearing the Rose 1.5 for the All-Star game in a blue colorway. Here is the link to check out his real All-Star shoes. Look for the AdiZero Rose 1.5 “East”:

    Reminds me much of the ZOOM KD3 X-MAS.

    Derrick Rose will be wearing two styles for the All Star Game. The above yellow colorway of the adiZero Rose will be his first half shoe.

    He better be making the All Star game if he’s planning on wearing TWO shoes already. Sheesh!

    Having said that, now comes the real question; which one to get?

    Eastbay’s stock of the Adizero Rose 1 is dwindling. I like the subtle grey/blue version but wouldn’t mind getting the yellow when it comes out in Feb but around that time, is what I’m really looking forward to. The Rose 1.5.

    I’m not as big a sneaker head as most of you guys, so I don’t know if I should buy the more street friendly gray blue or go balls to the wall with the yellow as a casual shoe? The 1.5 are going to be my basketball shoes for the rest of the year or should I want for performance reviews before deciding? To top it off, the AJ 2011 might be worth a second look even though I’m cold to the idea of copping.

    WTF man, decisions decisions!
