It's been a long and frustrating road to recovery for Derrick Rose, but for the first time in two years, the former MVP is healthy and ready to go for the season. With some new faces surrounding him in Chicago, Rose is looking to bounce back top form, and he'll have some help from adidas with his latest signature shoe, the D Rose 5 Boost.
Boost technology offers the most energy return of any cushioning on the market, so it makes sense the Three Stripes added it in to their basketball arsenal. The D Rose 5 Boost was built for Derrick both on and off the court, and features the most personal details ever included on a shoe in the D Rose signature collection. With the launch just a few weeks away, adidas put together this short video that shows Derrick balling out with Boost at his back, and he loved it.
"Having the Boost cushioning in my new signature shoe makes it the most favorite of mine that we've ever done," said Rose. "I've played in them for a couple months, but every time I put them on it feels like a new shoe and it's the most comfortable shoe I've ever worn. Now, I can't imagine playing without Boost in my shoes."
Not only do the shoes feature a Boost technology for optimal energy return, but they're also built to be ready right out the box with top level step-in comfort to ensure maximum performance. Advanced Category Footwear Designer Robbie Fuller gave some thoughts on what he thinks Boost can bring to the game.
"Boost is a groundbreaking development, not just for adidas Basketball but for athletes across all sports," said Fuller. "The Crazylight Boost and D Rose 5 Boost shoes combine to bring our most innovative basketball footwear to the court to truly transform the way the game is played."
