Following last month’s “Spark,” “Triple Blue,” and “Murray Park Winter” drops, adidas introduces the newest colorway of the Rose 3.5.
Dubbed “Chi-Town,” the colorway represents the flag of Chicago with amplified versions of its traditional colors.
“I’ve been all over the world but Chicago will always be my home,” said Derrick Rose. “Everybody in this city is so proud to be from here, man. That’s why I love this color of my shoe that me and my fans can wear to represent the city.”
Representing the hard-working city is a teal, synthetic leather upper that bears a rugged pattern. A glitter finish is symbolic of the trophies and accolades Rose earned during his high school career in Chicago, which includes two Illinois Class AA State Championships, McDonald’s All-American honors and Illinois Mr. Basketball.
These Chicago-inspired adidas basketball shoes are available starting today.
