“Sneak-a-Peek” adidas Rose 3 – ‘Fresh Prince’

The first exclusive colorway of the adidas Rose 3 came in a popular adidas colorway but clearly that was just a taste of what is to come for the latest signature sneaker from Derrick Rose.

Already being called the ‘Fresh Prince’ Rose 3, this pair draws its nickname from the colors of the shirt worn by Will Smith during the title credits and the first episode of the sitcom from the 1990s. Several nods to Chicago include the ‘773’ city area code on the inside of one of the sneaker tongues with “South Side” on the other written in a very similar graffiti-inspired font to the one used on the show’s credits. The insole also features stripes similar to the shirt that the inspiration for the rest of the sneaker comes from.

With Derrick Rose’s involvement in the adidas Rose line at an all-time high, I’m sure if these get a release date we will get a full backstory on his affiliation with The Fresh Prince of Bel Air show. This pair joins the Chicago Bears-inspired colorway we previously covered that doesn’t have a release date yet but being early isn’t such a bad thing is it?
