Ahead of the clash between the Chicago Bulls and the Cleveland Cavaliers tonight, adidas Basketball introduced another alternative colorway in Derrick Rose‘s D Rose 3 line-up. Billed as “’90s Throwback”, the loud green and turquoise appointments are references to the fashion and styles back during the 1990s. A swath of fluorescent green nubuck, embossed in a unique wave pattern, and blue stitching dominate the shoe’s upper. The same fluorescent green colorway covers the midsole as well, though there are hints of yellow speckles to accentuate the design further. Like elements on last month’s “Chicago Fire Department,” adidas designers complete this new edition with “South Side” and “773” graffiti tags along the left and right tongues’ inner linings, both references to Rose’s hometown neighborhood and area code.
Retailing for $160, the adidas D Rose 3 “’90s Throwback” will be available starting next Friday, November 9th.
Release Date: November 9th, 2012 (Friday)
