Officially unveiled over the weekend in Chicago, Derrick Rose and adidas Basketball introduced the new D Rose 4, designed with his distinct on and off-court personalities in mind.

We caught up with adidas Basketball Category Footwear Manager Jack Gray for an overview of the shoe's themes and tech, which highlights Derrick's explosive game and performance on the heel of the shoe, and his low-key and stylish off-court demeanor through the forefoot.
