adidas and Derrick Rose today officially launch the D Rose 6. 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.
Embodying Rose’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.”
The D Rose 6 comes equipped with forefoot and heel Boost cushioning engineered for basketball movements to ensure energy return and comfort. The bold, rugged FITFRAME heel cage and straps are constructed to deliver an adaptive fit and represent his countless hours spent in the gym. A herringbone traction pattern, inspired by woodgrain textures and design, adds optimum grip for drives to the basket.
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.
