Derrick Rose, when healthy, is an unstoppable force on the basketball court. His ballhandling skills, athleticism, and natural instincts are what make him such a great player, and adidas has channeled this for the second version of his 4th signature sneaker, the adidas Rose 4.5.
Rose is also super quick, and adidas has used this as inspiration for the upper design on his newest sneakers. They feature patterns from animals that represent Rose's agility and speed, and tiger stripes can be seen on the Rose 4.5 that also features Sprintweb, an EVA collar, and Geofit technology. Underneath is the now-familiar Crazyquick outsole.
These sneakers will give a player a lightweight option that has enough support to hold up to sharp cuts and an almost-out-of-control playing style. Retail for the sneakers is set at $140, and they release on January 30.
