words // Brandon Richard
The "Brenda" adidas Rose 3 pays homage to the most important person in Derrick's life, his mother Brenda Rose.
Red nubuck on the upper represents her favorite color and the crackled grainy finish is symbolic of Derrick's upbringing in the Englewood neighborhood of Chicago. Backsides of the tongues bear a close-up print of the D Rose family story graphic featured in the D Rose apparel collection and launch colorways. The left tongue features an inscription of “Brenda” in stylized red script, while the right features Derrick Rose’s lasered signature.
