One MVP-worth half of the NBA season down, one to go. In 2010-2011, Derrick Rose ascended into the ranks of the elite by leading his Chicago Bulls to their best start since the Jordan/Pippen Era. Fittingly, Rose will close out the season wearing an updated version of his adidas signature shoe. Set to officially make the transition at the All-Star Game, Rose will untie the adiZero Rose and lace up the brand new adiZero Rose 1.5.
Seen here is a "Chicago" home colorway of the 1.5 being modeled by a girl who looks like a pretty avid Rose fan. Though which Rose she is a fan of is unclear, because she's wearing a pretty awesome Jalen Rose jersey. The kicks sport a white and grey upper, accented by red on the heel and midsole. The tongue features a "773" optical illusion graphic in reference to Derrick's old Chicago area code.
This colorway popped up on Shop adidas last week, but has since been removed. Eastbay will be carrying them in mid-March.
