Considering the frenzy it caused among http://adidas.com/”>adidas fans even before any official information was available, the adidas D Rose 3 “Nightmare” will help to wrap up the year. Partly inspired by the 1993 stop-motion film, “The Nightmare Before Christmas,” by http://timburton.com/”>Tim Burton, this purple people eater also highlights the mindset of http://drosehoops.com/”>Derrick Rose‘s opponents before and during their games against the http://nba.com/bulls”>Chicago Bulls. In purple, shimmering synthetic leather upper imprinted with a “vertigo-like” pattern, the new shoe also sports a white-speckled midsole, glow-in-the-dark outsole, and comes with laces in black-white wave graphics. As with all other D Rose 3 editions, there is a hidden inscription on the tongue’s interior; this time, its the number “12-24-12,” to mark the shoe’s official launch date.
Limited and highly sought after, the adidas D Rose 3 “Nightmare” retails at around US$ 180 and will be available on Christmas Eve, Monday, December 24th, via your local http://adidas.com/us/content/basketball/”>adidas Basketball retailers and http://adidas.com/”>adidas online store.
