Kicks: adidas Debuts adizero Rose 2.5

Derrick Rose’s speedy second-half signature sneaker.

The adizero Rose 2.5 is the lightest signature shoe Derrick Rose has ever worn, giving him the flexibility to hit maximum speeds on the court—check out DRose reviewing it himself. It’s the shoe he’ll be wearing for the second half of the NBA season. The 2.5 is inspired by the adizero Crazy Light, featuring reduced weight, added support and a foam fit collar for comfort, which is important to fit DRose’s adizero Speed Wrap Ankle Brace. More details, from the adidas Basketball family:

The adizero Rose 2.5 features a top down satellite view of Derrick’s Chicago Englewood neighborhood embossed in the toe box and upper. The map view is a continuation of the “Cleared for Flight” theme of the adizero Rose 2 and represents a view from high above.  Signature details include “ROSE” on the tongue and three stripes branding on the back of the shoe to emphasize his speed on the court.  The sockliner features an infrared color and Derrick’s signature as a nod to his motivation and inspired play on the court. Derrick’s jersey number “1″ is featured on the toe.

The adizero Rose 2.5 uses the adizero Crazy Light outsole traction system which has varied engineered thickness to ensure maximum grip in high wear perimeter zones, and less thickness and weight in low perimeter zones like the midfoot.

The adizero Rose 2.5 will be available in home and away colorways at February 2 at Foot Locker, Eastbay and shopadidas.com for MSRP $110. The shoe will roll out in six additional colorways through April so stay tuned to the adidas Basketball Facebook page exclusive images and content.

    the white/grey/red colourway looks nice. The shoe looks like a slimmed down version of the d rose 1.5′s
