Sole Shots: Derrick Rose

words // Brandon Richard

This week, the sneaker world was taken over by Derrick Rose and the release of his brand new signature adidas basketball shoes, the adidas adiZero Rose 2. Inspired by Derrick’s aerodynamic style of play, the Rose 2 is a lightweight silhouette aided by adidas’ SprintWeb technology, gore ankle straps, SprintFrame support and a Splatter traction rubber outsole. Taking on an “All Flights Cancelled” theme, the shoe lists names of several major NBA cities, each of which will have their “flight” plans changed this season because of the play of Rose.

To celebrate the official launch of the adidas adiZero Rose 2, Sole Shots takes a look at the adidas Derrick Rose signature line. Photo submissions from members of Sole Collector and sneaker enthusiasts around the world include the adiZero Rose, adiZero Rose 1.5, adiZero Rose 2 and Rose colorways of the TS Supernatural Creator and adiZero Crazy Light.

Read on for a look at some Derrick Rose x adidas photography.
