The first marquee player on the Chicago Bulls‘ roster since Michael Jordan, Derrick Rose almost immediately became a fan favorite following his selection as the first overall pick in the 2008 NBA draft. Not only was he a humble and likeable superstar, but he was a hometown kid, hailing from Chicago’s South Side. The latest colorway of the adidas D Rose 3.5, dubbed the “Chi-Town,” celebrates the relationship between Rose and his city, featuring traditional colors representing the Flag of Chicago. The synthetic leather upper is treated with a subtly rugged pattern symbolizing the hard working people of Chi-town, while a glitter finish represents the various trophies and accolades Rose earned during his high school career. Look for the adidas D Rose 3.5 “Chi-Town” to launch through adidas Basketball’s online store on February 28th.
