Though Derrick Rose is unfortunately sidelined for the season, his adidas D Rose 4 signature shoe is still finding a way to make headlines. When it's not kicking Chris Paul in the face, it's surfacing in an interesting multicolor sample that didn't make it to production.

Seen in this photo shared by @dailydisposal, the sample features panels that not only vary in color, but material and texture as well. The left shoe transitions from a gradient-style composition of vibrant colors to a gold heel, while the right shoe is treated to a cityscape-like print and metallic silver trim.

These samples are confirmed as authentic, but won't be hitting retail. Would you have been interested in grabbing the Rose 4 in this unique make-up?
