DERRICK Rose has unveiled his latest signature shoes from adidas, the D Rose 6.
Adidas said their latest offering typifies the toughness and resilience of the former No.1 overall pick and the youngest MVP in the NBA who has developed an aggressive game and cool, confident demeanor that remains unchanged.
Returning to the playoffs for the first time in nearly three years, Rose averaged more than 20 points and six assists, proving he’s still capable of dominance on the court.
“Nobody believed in me except my friends, my family, my fans and my city,” said Rose. “That’s all I need. My goal is to get back to work and bring it every day.”
The D Rose 6 embodies Rose’s journey of overcoming adversity with hardwork and perseverance. Inspired by his will to never stop, the silhouette is designed to elevate his aggressive game and compliment his drive to win championships.
“This is the second shoe I’ve been able to wear with Boost and the comfort and energy you get back is crazy. I’m not going to wear another basketball shoe that doesn't have Boost,” Rose said. “adidas also brought a lot of details about Chicago that I think my fans will love.”
The D Rose 6 comes equipped with forefoot and heel Boost cushioning "engineered for basketball movements to ensure energy return and comfort."
