adidas DRose 3 ‘Nightmare Before Christmas’ (KICKS)


Skipping the predictable red and green holiday scheme, the final DRose 3 colorway will take on a spooky Christmas look. The concept comes from Tim Burton’s holiday classic, The Nightmare Before Christmas. The NBCs show off a purple upper, black lining, yellow accents, yellow branding and Burton-esque graphics all sitting on top of a speckled sole. The sneakers also glow in the dark, which adds to the eerie effect. And of course, our friends at adidas Basketball are releasing these kicks on December 24:

Dubbed “Nightmare” this limited edition colorway is inspired by an opponent’s mindset the night before facing D Rose on the court.

The purple, “vertigo” shimmer synthetic leather upper represents the bad dreams opponents have about guarding the 2011 NBA Most Valuable Player. Other features include glow-in-the-dark outsole, black and white speckled midsole and wave patterned black and white laces. The inside of the tongue features 12-24-12 to represent the day this limited edition pair drops

The D Rose 3 “Nightmare” drops December 24 for $180, and is available at adidas Basketball.
