Dubbed “Chicago Southside,” this upcoming colorway of the adidas D Rose 4 is inspired by Derrick Rose’s basketball roots in his Chicago hometown. The bright green and blue colorway represents the colors Derrick wore throughout his high school playing days, highlighted by two Illinois Class AA State Championships, McDonald’s All-American honors and an Illinois Mr. Basketball award. Those accolades are reflected in the bright blue front half of the shoe, featuring a metallic finish to represent the player’s various trophies, while the GEOFIT collar and SPRINTFRAME-equipped green half reflects Derrick’s focused, humble and understated off-court personality. Look for the adidas D Rose 4 “Chicago Southside” to be available October 10th, directly from adidas Basketball.
