One week before the launch of the D Rose 3.5 in home and away colorways, adidas will release a special “Year of the Snake” edition, paying tribute to the Chinese New Year beginning February 10th. The shoe has an upper wearing black synthetic SPRINTWEB finished with a textured snakeskin pattern, complemented with metallic gold SPRINTFRAME construction for a contrasting bit of sheen. The turquoise coloring at the laces, toe, liner and translucent outsole is symbolic of water, the key element of the 2013 Chinese New Year. Finally, the interior tongue patch features Derrick Rose‘s signature logo surrounded by black, gold and turquoise hues, representing the spiral inspiration of the shoe. Look for the D Rose 3.5 “Year of the Snake” to release at adidas’ online store on January 24th.
Release Date: January 24th, 2013 (Thursday)
