Finally, after the dramatic injury to NBA superstar Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls in 2012, his recovery and rehab of his injured knee through 2013, and now his return to the basketball court after a year and a half, the adidas D Rose 4 is released to the public.
The video, which features both player and shoe, highlights Rose and his new signature sneaker in a more detailed light. His first shoe that he's worn in an NBA game since the adizero Rose 2.5 in the 2011-2012 regular season, the D Rose 4 is highlighted with a wide array of assets.
From the bold line that represents Rose off the court and on the court to the emblematic rose head that depicts Rose's family heritage and his own jersey specs, the shoe represents the duality of his life. Even more important is the construction of the shoe itself.
The SPRINTFRAME support chassis is given its time in the limelight, which gives the D Rose 4 its strength and support from the sole to the laces. Ankle support is provided by the GEOFIT collar, adding a snug fit and a soft fit around the lower leg. Flexibility is boosted by the D Rose 4's inclusion of the Crazyquick outsole.
