Basketball sneakers made especially for Christmas isn’t anything out of the ordinary, but pairs made for the night before aren’t as common which is why adidas chose to do just that with a pair of the Rose 3.
Inspired by Tim Burton’s movie ‘The Nightmare Before Christmas’, the adidas Rose 3 ‘Nightmare’ features a wavy synthetic upper in the purple Vertigo color with black speckled midsole is seen in the form of the updated SprintFrame. An added feature is the glow-in-the-dark accents on the outsole with the midsole speckles and heel branding glowing as well. The date 12-24-12 can be seen stitched on the inside of the tongue.
adidas created a whole ‘Nightmare’ pack consisting of not only the Rose 3, but an adiPower Howard 3, Top Ten 2000, Crazy Light 2, and a adi High EXT. On the adidas webstore pre-orders for the ‘Nightmare’ Rose 3 can be made HERE.
