Dubbed, “Year of the Snake” the shoe pays homage to Chinese New Year which begins on February 10. It features a black synthetic SPRINTWEB upper with a textured, scale pattern to represent a snake’s detailed skin. The SPRINTFRAME is chrome, metallic gold to stand out on court. The iced outsole and the laces, toe and liner feature a turquoise contrast to represent water, the key element for 2013 Chinese New Year. The inside tongue patch features black, gold and turquoise colors surrounding the D Rose logo in various shapes designed to represent the spiral inspiration of the shoe. The D Rose 3.5 “Year of the Snake” edition drops January 24 for $160 and is available at adidas Basketball.
