As seen in adidas Originals' new "The Legacy of Craftsmanship" short film, designer Josh Herr worked with Markus Thaler on a bespoke pair of Torsion Attitudes custom made for Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose.
A newer silhouette based on an existing design, the Torsion Attitude is a model that D Rose had taken a liking to. With that in mind, Herr and Thaler worked on a version of the shoe that was strong and durable, but flexible at the same time. Details include synthetic leather and mesh, faux reptile overlays, hand-punched metal eyelets, a leather-lined interior and custom branding. You'll also notice the new D Rose logo on the outsole.
Take a detailed look at D Rose's 1-of-1 Torsion Attitude below.
