Once again, Derrick Rose’s hometown of Chicago inspires two new colorways of his latest signature shoe, the adidas D Rose 5 Boost.
Highlighted by an embossed satellite print of the city originally introduced on the D Rose 2.5, the ‘Chicago Ice’ colorway sports a black and white look with an ice blue outsole to reflect Chicago’s frigid winters.
During the early 20th century, African-American workers settled in Chicago in search of employment. There, they honed their musical craft, which evolved into Chicago-style blues and influenced modern music. The ‘Woven Blues’ D Rose 5 Boost features a basket woven upper in deep navy, offset by bright orange accents.
