Named after the picturesque Lakeshore Drive expressway in Derrick Rose’s hometown of Chicago, the adidas D Rose “Lakeshore” is an all-new off-court lifestyle shoe that can fit any style. Of course, it’s all in the details with this shoe, as the intricacies depict Derrick’s story:
The off-court lifestyle D Rose Lakeshore takes iconic design cues from classic adidas footwear and was created from Derrick’s desire for a high quality shoe that kids could wear in their everyday lives. Inspired by Derrick’s style and journey to the NBA, the midsole is inscribed with unique and memorable details that tell Derrick’s story. These details include his three brothers’ initials, a quote, two notable phrases of Derrick’s and “1.7%” to represent the odds that the Chicago Bulls had to land the first overall pick in the 2008 NBA Draft.
The intricate details of the D Rose Lakeshore continue with premium leather and canvas upper materials, perforated three stripes, a prominently placed D Rose logo on the heel and a map with Chicago neighborhoods and landmarks important to Derrick on the outsole.
