This upcoming colorway of the adidas D Rose 4 pays tribute to Derrick Rose’s NO. 1 fan, and the person who Rose credits for keeping him so humble: his mother Brenda. “My mom means the world to me,” says the former NBA league MVP. “She is my motivation to work as hard as I do, which is why I love wearing this color of my shoe for her.” That color is a deep red hue, which finishes the synthetic leather front half of the shoe and features a subtle gloss pattern to represent the layers of Derrick and his family. The back half of the silhouette, meanwhile, is built with a GEOFIT collar and SPRINTFRAME in contrast black. Finally, a D Rose logo on the tongue and collar, formed with three petals that revolve around the letter “D” and number “1,” gives the nod to Rose’s three brothers and mother. Expect the adidas D Rose 4 “Brenda” to release at select adidas Basketball retailers and online starting October 10th.
Release Date: October 10th, 2013 (Thursday)
