In a rematch of last season’s National Championship Game, the Baylor Bears took on the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in South Bend last night. Closely contested for the most part, Baylor was able to pull away late behind Brittney Griner’s strong double-double to top the Irish 73-61. The loss was Notre Dame’s first of the year.

Despite dropping the game, the Lady Irish were winners with their sneaker selection, going with a team-wide wearing of the “90s Throwback” adidas Rose 3. The shoe is inspired by fashion of the era and features graffiti-style detailing on the tongues.

View a few photos from last night’s game below. You can grab the “90s Throwback” Rose 3 today.

Today, adidas unveils the “Michigan Avenue” Rose 3, inspired by the lights and iconic characters that populate the avenue in Derrick’s hometown of Chicago during the holiday season.

The shoe’s white synthetic base and midsole feature a speckle print to represent the bright lights of one of the world’s best known avenues. Blue nubuck works the toe, while the 3-Stripes and eyelets are bright yellow. The tongue, laces and outsole are infrared as a salute to the characters in the Magnificent Mile Lights Festival Parade.

Backsides of the tongues feature stars and a half-moon to represent D Rose’s “Poohdini” tattoo. The pattern is encircled by the satellite coordinates of Michigan Avenue and the number 1,000,000 to represent the amount of lights displayed each year during the Magnificent Mile Lights Festival which kicks off Saturday, November 17.

Continuing to have fun with Derrick Rose’s third signature shoe, adidas Basketball jumps in the time machine and drops a “90s Throwback” colorway of the Rose 3.

The “90s” Rose 3 takes on some of the style and color cues of the popular TV show The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, a definitive staple of 90s fashion. Featured on the upper is loud fluorescent green nubuck with a unique wave pattern and blue contrast stitching. On the backsides of the tongues, block lettering and graffiti tags of “South Side” and “773” represent Derrick’s Chicago neighborhood. The midsole is adorned by a green on yellow speckled pattern, while the insoles sport green and yellow horizontal stripes.

Not only does the “90s Throwback” Rose 3 feature a great look for casual wear, but the shoe is performance ready too. Weighing in below 13 ounces, the D Rose 3 features a lightweight synthetic upper with seamlessly bonded SprintWeb for breathable support. SprintFrame construction provides stability and speed to create a lightweight and supportive chassis. A flexible molded memory foam collar allows for an ankle wrap or brace. Below, a compression-molded EVA midsole provides lightweight cushioning. The non-marking rubber outsole is helped by flex grooves in the forefoot for flexibility. Lastly, micoach compatibility allows athletes to track performance digitally through the use of a micoach SPEED_CELL.

These 90s-inspired adidas basketball shoes are available now here at Eastbay.
