When I heard about the new adiZero Rose 2 shoes aka the “Windy City” shoes I automatically had flashbacks of my friend from the 90s that was a die hard Jordan and would buy anything with his name on it. Jordan’s mom was endorsing a hair product so guess what was in his bathroom of this Billy Holyle look a like? That was a silly buy but maybe the worst was buying the video game “Michael Jordan’s Chaos in The Windy City.” Check the video below to see why it was such a head shaker.
Now about the “Windy City” product from Rose. It was Inspired by Chicago’s blue line “L” train and the holiday season, D-Rose will debut this fire red/black/white/blue colorway during his Christmas Day game. It features a Chicago “L” map in the sockliner and a blue adiZero pin line on the upper to rep the blue line “L” train. The upper is anodized to give the brushed metal look of train cars with a fire red finish to look like a holiday gift on the court.
My only complaint is I don’t have a pair and if I wanted one I have to wait until December 15th to pick up a pair but the adidas Basketball Facebook page will give fans an early opportunity to buy the shoes next week before the official launch.
