After missing all of last season, Derrick Rose has returned to the NBA and his Chicago Bulls are starting to find their old groove. For games played at the United Center, Derrick has been lacing up this clean ‘Home’ colorway of the adidas D Rose 4.

The aluminum grey half of the shoe represents Derrick’s calm off-court demeanor, while the intricately designed heel is symbolic of his dynamic style of play. White stripes run down the heel, red lines the interior and a flex outsole finishes things off below. The D Rose 4 is also miCoach compatible, meaning you can track your performance with a miCoach Speed_Cell.

During the offseason, Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose takes his training regimen to southern California, the inspiration behind this ‘Boardwalk’ colorway of his adidas D Rose 4 signature shoe.

The shoe’s mint green base and tan and pink accents represent the ocean, sand and architectural details found on SoCal beaches.

“It’s important for me to work on my game every day during the off-season,” said Rose. “I chose southern California as my summer home because it’s a place where I can focus on training and getting ready for the season. I love this colorway of the shoe because it tells the other side of the story about where I spend my time.”

The performance basketball model comes equipped with a lightweight SprintWeb upper, GeoFit padded ankle, SprintFrame chassis for support a flexible rubber outsole and miCoach compatibility.

Pick up a pair of these new Derrick Rose shoes this Thursday, November 7 for $140. Follow @Eastbay on Twitter and @OfficialEastbay on Instagram for all updates and information.

adidas Basketball & Derrick Rose - 'Basketball is Everything'

words // Brandon Richard

Today, adidas Basketball unveils a new spot called ‘Basketball is Everything,’ capturing the essence of Derrick Rose’s love and dedication to the game of basketball.

Along with family, basketball is the most important thing in the world to Derrick and he’s dedicated to improving his game and bringing a championship to Chicago. Stripping away the fame and notoriety leaves you with what matters most to Derrick — the game.

‘Basketball is Everything’ begins with Derrick training for the upcoming season then cuts to various scenes that portray his life which include, outside of his home, at his birthday party with family and friends including hip-hop artists Common, 2 Chainz and Dom Kennedy, at a music video shoot with rapper Big Sean and at a famous high-end jewelry store with his brother. The commercial comes full circle by showing Derrick training alone in the gym once again, emphasizing that even if you take away all of the aspects of Derrick’s life that he feels so blessed to have, he would still have the one thing that matters to him most, basketball.

The ad was created by 180LA and directed by Stacy Wall.

Check out ‘Basketball is Everything’ below and get ready for the D Rose 4 sneaker launch on October 10.
