Following last month’s “Spark,” “Triple Blue,” and “Murray Park Winter” drops, adidas introduces the newest colorway of the Rose 3.5.

Dubbed “Chi-Town,” the colorway represents the flag of Chicago with amplified versions of its traditional colors.

“I’ve been all over the world but Chicago will always be my home,” said Derrick Rose. “Everybody in this city is so proud to be from here, man. That’s why I love this color of my shoe that me and my fans can wear to represent the city.”

Representing the hard-working city is a teal, synthetic leather upper that bears a rugged pattern. A glitter finish is symbolic of the trophies and accolades Rose earned during his high school career in Chicago, which includes two Illinois Class AA State Championships, McDonald’s All-American honors and Illinois Mr. Basketball.

These Chicago-inspired adidas basketball shoes are available starting today.

With just a few weeks of spring left, adidas Basketball introduces the “Murray Park Winter” Rose 3.5, paying homage to the days when Derrick Rose shoved snow from the Murray Park court in his Englewood neighborhood of Chicago and played through the cold with numb fingers to hone his game.

“This colorway of my shoe is about basketball in Chicago, when you play no matter what,” said Rose. “I lived, ate and slept the game growing up and nothing stopped me from taking the court.”

Symbolic of the cold, snowy Chicago winters is a purple and blue zest synthetic upper. The SprintFrame is treated to a pearlized finish to stand out on the court, while the inside tongue patch reads “Englewood” to represent Derrick’s neighborhood.

Rose’s new hometown-themed adidas basketball shoes and matching socks are available now.

Unfortunate circumstances have prevented this “Triple Blue” Rose 3.5 from being Derrick Rose’s All-Star shoe, but adidas moves forward with the release.

Decked out in varying blue tones, the shoe represents Derrick’s cold on-court demeanor and attitude for competition, but the story goes a little further.

Remember last year’s All-Star player introductions? Eastern Conference starters emerged from the tunnel all smiles and dancing — except for Derrick Rose, who maintained his intense level of focus, even on the most playful of stages. Rose’s reaction to the dancing was a hot topic on social media and adidas designers were inspired to create this “icy” blue colorway of what would have been his 2013 All-Star shoe.

The good news is that you can pick up the “Triple Blue” Rose 3.5 — and you can do so today.
