Embodying Derrick’s journey of overcoming adversity with hard work and perseverance, adidas unveils the D Rose 6. Inspired by his will to never stop, the silhouette is designed to elevate his aggressive game and compliment his drive to win championships.
“This is the second shoe I’ve been able to wear with Boost and the comfort and energy you get back is crazy. I’m not going to wear another basketball shoe that doesn’t have Boost,” Derrick said. “adidas also brought a lot of details about Chicago that I think my fans will love.”
Blending details inspired by the city of Chicago with premium materials for a luxury finish, the D Rose 6 features the six-point star of the Chicago flag at the base of the laces and six reflective lines in the heel. The silhouette’s diamond pattern upper and faceted eyelets call on the sharp, bold architecture of the city with a rugged feel to match Rose’s play.
“Derrick is in a different place than he was a few years ago and we wanted to create a shoe that shares his focus to bring a championship home,” said Brian Foresta, vice president of Global Design, adidas Basketball. “Our close work with Derrick allowed us to design a shoe that reflects his journey and helps build his game.”
The D Rose 6 ($140) launches October 15 in “Home” and November 5 in “Road” colorways with five more editions unveiling through the end of the year.
