MVP Derrick Rose will lace up a new colorway of the adizero Rose 2.5 when he leads the Chicago Bulls and their top Eastern Conference record against the New York Knicks tonight in NYC. Let’s hope Brenda helps him pull off these type of dunks again against the Knicks
Dubbed “Brenda,” the bold red colorway of the shoe represents family for Derrick and is his mother Brenda’s favorite color. The texture of the shoe’s nubuck upper is embossed with detailed rose material and features a full-grain nubuck leather toe for a strong off-court look. The shoe’s on-court debut is a direct nod to the “Big Apple.”
The adizero Rose 2.5 “Brenda” will be available February 9 at Foot Locker, Eastbay and Shopadidas.com for MSRP $110. The shoe will roll out in three additional colorways through April so stay tuned to the adidas Basketball Facebook page for exclusive images and content. The home and away colorways are on-sale now.
