THE much-anticipated return of NBA superstar Derrick Rose to the Philippines is part of the Adidas D Rose Tour where Adidas showcases a new colorway of its "D Rose 3.5" signature shoe designed exclusively for the Chicago Bulls point guard by iconic fashion designer Jeremy Scott.
“I can’t thank Jeremy enough for creating this shoe,” said Rose. “I love sneakers and to have Jeremy take his time to create a shoe for me is crazy. This shoe is so cool, and having a chance to meet with Jeremy and talk about how he comes up with some of his designs was really fun.”
The two met in Los Angeles on June 27, where Scott presented the former NBA No.1 pick with the first pair of the limited edition shoes that will launch at select retailers across the globe.
“I really wanted to meld my world and Derrick’s world,” said designer. “I used his shoes as a canvas and created the coolest cherubs in the world for this shoe.”
The shoe features a clean, white full synthetic patent leather upper with printed detailed cherubs in various poses and positions with different accessories. The shoe features the D Rose logo in black on the outside of the tongue, and the Jeremy Scott logo on the back of the tongue and sockliner.
Pinoy basketball fans and collectors will have a chance to purchase this rare model locally since the D Rose 3.5 x JS limited edition will be available in September 2013 for a cool P12,000 at Titan Two Parkade.
