“[Adidas] sent me, like, a sample shoe that had an orange in it before I got traded and I was like, man, why do these have orange in it? I don’t get it,” Derrick Rose said in KICKS 19. “Then all of a sudden I got traded to the Knicks and I was like, Oh shit! Was that a sign? I felt like it was a sign.”
The sneaker that the one-time MVP was talking about was the “Solar Red” D Rose 7, which officially drops tomorrow. The silhouette boasts adidas’ signature BOOST technology, which creates a smooth, stable ride. The mesh in the forefoot keeps you comfortable while the molded collar keeps you locked in.
This colorway was inspired by the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. The fire lasted three days, but just like D Rose with his injuries, the Chi came back even stronger after one of its lowest points.
Scoop these on adidas.com on August 11, for $160.
