Continuing to draw inspiration from the city Derrick Rose has always called home, adidas drops the adidas Rose 3 Low in the colors of the Chicago flag.
Joy Blue, which represents Chicago's various bodies of water on the flag, handles majority of the shoe's upper, the tongue, inner lining and heel pull-tab. Symbolic of the North, West and South sides of the city are stripes of white, which fills the toebox, heel counter and midsole. The red found on the flag's six-pointed stars helps finish off the look on the laces and outsole. Also embroidered on the backside of the tongue is "1917," the year the Chicago flag was adopted.
The "Flag of Chicago" Rose 3 Low is available now at select overseas retailers.
