D-Rose Debuts New adidas adizero Rose 2.5
I grew up in the 90's when the NBA allowed fouls and tough defense. I've had the pleasure of working with a great team at ballislife for over a decade. We carved out a new category in the sports world from scratch and by the way MJ is the best of all time. LeBron James is the best of his era, enough with the comparison.

The fourth signature shoe for Rose, at 11 ounces the adizero Rose 2.5 is the lightest signature basketball shoe Derrick has ever worn to give him next level speed and support for the second half of the season and NBA playoff run.
adizero Rose 2.5 features a top down satellite view of Derrick’s Chicago Englewood neighborhood embossed in the toe box and upper. The map view is a continuation of the “Cleared for Flight” theme of the adizero Rose 2 and represents a view from high above. Signature details include “ROSE” on the tongue and three stripes branding on the back of the shoe to emphasize his speed on the court. The sockliner features an infrared color and Derrick’s signature as a nod to his motivation and inspired play on the court. Derrick’s jersey number “1” is featured on the toe.
Inspired by the adizero Crazy Light, the upper features a premium SPRINTFRAME execution and enlarged SPRINTWEB area to reduce weight, add support and allow maximum motion control. The GEOFIT memory foam collar provides optimum comfort and fit, especially with Derrick’s adizero Speed Wrap Ankle Brace.
adizero Rose 2.5 uses the adizero Crazy Light outsole traction system which has varied engineered thickness to ensure maximum grip in high wear perimeter zones, and less thickness and weight in low perimeter zones like the midfoot.
