Before becoming a Chicago Bull and Memphis Tiger, Derrick Rose was a Simeon Career Academy Wolverine. So whether you call this Wolverine-inspired adidas adiZero Rose 2 the “Simeon” or “Wolverine” matters not. Chances are people will love them regardless of title.
This adiZero Rose 2 is inspired by said high school, flaunting a blue and fluorescent yellow accenting that nods to Derrick’s blue/yellow varsity uniform colors. A grey shade on the upper provides the perfect bounce-off. Look closely at the toe box and you’ll see a digitized, embossed pattern that is meant to “reflect the contours of Chicago.”
The adidas adiZero Rose 2 “Wolverine” drops Thursday, December 1st at Foot Locker, Eastbay, and shopadidas.
adidas says to stay tuned to the adidas Basketball Facebook page for a chance to buy the shoes next week before the official launch.
