With rumors of a possible playoff return squashed, Derrick Rose isn't expected to return to action until next season, when he'll (hopefully) debut the adidas D Rose 5.

Below is a look at Rose's upcoming signature model, which marks a shift in the line's design language. While some of the tech is carried over, highly touted Boost cushioning will make its first appearance in the series. The shoe also features new framing and a revamped branding strategy, moving Derrick's 'D Rose' logo to the heel in place of the usual 3-Stripes.

The D Rose 5 is previewed in three different colorways below: 'Away,' a possible 'Windy City' make-up and a new teal-based look. These are early stage samples, so we'll probably see a more refined design when the shoe hits retail, presumably this fall. Let us know what your early impressions are and stick with Sole Collector for updates.
