Reigning MVP Derrick Rose debuts the new adidas adizero Rose 2.5 signature shoe in this new video posted today by adidas. The video continues to pay homage to fans who have reviewed Rose signature footwear and encourages them to submit reviews to the adidas Basketball Facebook page when the shoe hits stores on February 2.

The fourth signature shoe for Rose, at 11 ounces the adizero Rose 2.5 is the lightest signature basketball shoe Derrick has ever worn to give him next level speed and support for the second half of the season and NBA Playoff run.

The adizero Rose 2.5 features a top down satellite view of Derrick’s Chicago Englewood neighborhood embossed in the toe box and upper. The map view is a continuation of the “Cleared for Flight” theme of the adizero Rose 2 and represents a view from high above. Signature details include “ROSE” on the tongue and three stripes branding on the back of the shoe to emphasize his speed on the court. The sockliner features an infrared color and Derrick’s signature as a nod to his motivation and inspired play on the court. Derrick’s jersey number “1” is featured on the toe.

Inspired by the adizero Crazy Light, the upper features a premium SPRINTFRAME execution and enlarged SPRINTWEB area to reduce weight, add support and allow maximum motion control. The GEOFIT memory foam collar provides optimum comfort and fit, especially with Derrick’s adizero Speed Wrap Ankle Brace.

The adizero Rose 2.5 uses the adizero Crazy Light outsole traction system which has varied engineered thickness to ensure maximum grip in high wear perimeter zones, and less thickness and weight in low perimeter zones like the midfoot.

The adizero Rose 2.5 will be available in home and away colorways at February 2 at Foot Locker, Eastbay and for MSRP $110. The shoe will roll out in six additional colorways through April so stay tuned to the adidas Basketball Facebook page exclusive images and content.
