A Close Look at the adidas D Rose 9
Minnesota may have suffered a devastating first-round defeat against Houston, but at least the playoffs had one treat for Timberwolves fans: a first look at Derrick Rose's latest signature sneaker, the D Rose 9. And here's a close look at the high-top baller.
The model features extensive striations throughout its Primeknit upper – most notably at the toe and heel – reminiscent of the EQT Support 93/17 and Prophere respectively. In a move that strays heavily from Rose's recent signature sneakers, the 9 does away with BOOST cushioning and embraces a BOUNCE sole unit instead.
