Today, adidas unveils the D Rose 4.5, the latest in a line of premium and personal products designed for Chicago Bulls point guard Derrick Rose. The D Rose 4.5 features a tailored design inspired by his on-court animal instincts.
The shoe's hybrid skin upper design has a functional and stylish pattern representing the fastest and most unique animals on the planet while meeting Derrick's standard of style. SprintWeb and SprintSkin enhance support on the lateral side and work with the Crazyquick outsole on the medial side for elite performance.
Also featured is an innovative asymmetrical engineered molded EVA collar with GEOFIT technology and increased padding around the ankle to create a more ergonomic fit for enhanced comfort. SprintFrame adds strength and stability and the sole features high-grade injected molded EVA to ensure a lightweight, flexible and cushioned ride. Signature details include the 'D ROSE' logo, which features three petals that revolve around the letter 'D' and number '1' in the center, located on the collar, tongue and Rose lace jewels.
The D Rose 4.5 drops in three colorways for $140 beginning January 30 at adidas.com/basketball. Additional colorways will be available throughout the spring.
