In celebration of St. Patrick’s Day, select NBA teams will be wearing green versions of their uniforms for game’s on tomorrow’s schedule. One of those teams will be the Chicago Bulls, who have donned the green unis at least once a year since the NBA’s inaugural St. Patty’s observance in 2006. Some players will also be wearing green-based sneakers to match the uniforms, including point guard Derrick Rose.
Pictured here is the St. Patrick’s Day adidas adiZero Rose 2.5, which if health permits, Rose will wear tomorrow night against the Philadelphia 76ers. Decked out in Kelly Green, the shoe features a green Luckskin nubuck upper with contrasting white hits on the laces, 3-Stripes wrapped around the heel, tongue logo and outsole. Minimal hits of gold pop up on the adiZero pinline, vamp branding and stripe borders. The colorway not only salutes Chicago’s St. Patrick’s Day Game, but Rose’s childhood school Beasley Academy.
