Derrick Rose’s latest signature sneaker has seen its share of colorways, all in their own way, odes to the city of Chi. The latest edition of the DRose 3.5—”Chi-Town”—is the most Windy City of them all, with every element representing the hard-working city. “Everybody in this city is so proud to be from here, man,” Rose says. “That’s why I love this color of my shoe that me and my fans can wear to represent the city.”

Dubbed “Chi-Town,” the colorway represents the iconic Flag of Chicago with amplified versions of its traditional colors.
“I’ve been all over the world but Chicago will always be my home,” said Rose. “Everybody in this city is so proud to be from here, man. That’s why I love this color of my shoe that me and my fans can wear to represent the city.”
The teal, synthetic leather upper features a rugged pattern to represent the hard working city. The glitter finish represents the trophies and accolades Derrick earned during his high school career in Chicago which includes two Illinois Class AA State Championships, McDonald’s All-American honors and Illinois Mr. Basketball.
The D Rose 3.5 “Chi-Town” drops February 28 for $160, and is available at adidas Basketball.
