adidas adiZero Rose 2.5 – ‘Playoff’

April 4, 2012 – Ben Berry

With the Chicago Bulls being first in the Eastern Conference and having clinched a playoff position, the Bulls premiere player Derrick Rose will be in conversation throughout the NBA playoffs. When he’ll return to play is yet to be determined, but adidas is properly prepared with what might be the best colorway of the adiZero Rose 2.5 yet.

Grey patent leather is used on the toe along side tumbled nubuck seen on the upper. Red is used as the accent color ensuring that this sneaker will be right at home when worn with a Bulls jersey.

The similarities between Rose and Jordan are just uncanny. MJ’s fourth sneaker featured cement print as well, and it was common knowledge that Jordan often waited for the playoffs to unveil his latest signature sneaker in a mostly black colorway and Rose continues the tradition started by the last MVP to come out of Chicago.

Video gamers might remember that this is the adiRose 2.5 colorway seen in NBA 2K12.

The ‘Playoff Edition’ of the adiZero Rose 2.5 by adidas is in stores now for $110.
