Before his signature line continues with the adiZero Rose 3 next season, Derrick Rose will spend the summer hooping for Team USA in the adidas adiZero Rose 773. The name 773 references the primary dialing code of Chicago. A natural progression from the Rose 2.5, the shoe features SPRINTSKIN construction, SPRINTFRAME supper, GEOFIT padding and heel 3-Stripes branding, all elements that have come to define the Rose line. The positioning of the stripes, miCoach compatibility and tooling have also been inherited from the 2.5.
Pictured here is a sample 773 in Forest Green, accented by white on the tongue tab, trim along the sides, 3-STripes, heel tab signature and outsole. We're uncertain if this particular colorway will be releasing, but the 773 will be available in July.
