Derrick Rose has stepped out on court to officially debut his new adidas D Rose 9 — and there’s no denying that the Three Stripe star athlete dominated in the shoe, scoring a respectable 16 points in just 24 minutes of play.
It’s lucky the shoe performed well, because we can’t see it winning any design awards, mainly due to the awkward jumble of elements around the heel. However, it’s the lack of BOOST that’s likely to disappoint most of the brand's fans, because that’s really all we care about at the end of the day, right?
The adidas D Rose 9 hasn’t been given a release date yet, but rumours suggest it'll drop some time in July.
