For Bears fans feeling down about last night's sloppy loss to the Houston Texans, here's a little Monday Morning pick-me-up. Set to drop later this month is the "Chicago Bears" adidas Rose 3, which of course pays tribute to Derrick's hometown football team. The shoe features the familiar navy and orange color scheme with a reflective "D1" logo on the tongue and white stripes running down the heel. If there were any lingering questions about the inspiration, a Rose-branded helmet and the date the Bears were founded appear on the backsides of the tongues.
Black Friday will be a busy day for sneakers and adidas Basketball will be throwing their name in the mix with the "Bears" Rose 3. The shoe retails for $160 and will be available at Eastbay and adidas.com.
If you'd like to add this sample size 9 to your collection, dballaholic is currently selling it on eBay.
Edit: This colorway has been scrapped in the U.S. Some pairs were sold overseas and possibly in Chicago, but there will not be an official release.
