At first glimpse, one may see the blue and yellow accent colors on this new adidas adiZero Rose 2 and think that it’s a salute to the retractable-clawed mutant superhero. However, the “Wolverine” nicknamed attached to this pair is actually inspired by Derrick Rose’s high school days at Chicago’s Simeon Career Academy. The Wolverine colorway of these adidas basketball shoes amplifies his varsity colors with fluorescent blue and yellow to represent his nationally publicized prep career. The toe box features a digitized embossed pattern to reflect the contours of Chicago.

The “Wolverine” adidas adiZero Rose 2 will be available starting Thursday, December 1st here at Eastbay.
