MVP Derrick Rose debuts the new adidas adizero Rose 2.5 signature shoe in this new video posted today by adidas. The video pays homage to fans who reviewed Rose signature footwear, and encourages them to submit their reviews to the adidas Basketball Facebook page . The fourth signature shoe for MVP Derrick Rose, at 11 ounces the adizero Rose 2.5 is the lightest signature basketball shoe Derrick has ever worn to give him next level speed and support for the second half of the season and NBA Playoff run.

The adizero Rose 2.5 features a top down satellite view of Derrick’s
Chicago Englewood neighborhood embossed in the toe box and upper. The
map view is a continuation of the “Cleared for Flight” theme of the
adizero Rose 2 and represents a view from high above. Signature details
include “ROSE” on the tongue and three stripes branding on the back of
the shoe to emphasize his speed on the court. The sockliner features an
infrared color and Derrick’s signature as a nod to his motivation and
inspired play on the court. Derrick’s jersey number “1” is featured on
the toe.

Inspired by the adizero Crazy Light, the upper features a premium
SPRINTFRAME execution and enlarged SPRINTWEB area to reduce weight, add
support and allow maximum motion control. The GEOFIT memory foam collar
provides optimum comfort and fit, especially with Derrick’s adizero
Speed Wrap Ankle Brace.

The adizero Rose 2.5 uses the adizero Crazy Light outsole traction
system which has varied engineered thickness to ensure maximum grip in
high wear perimeter zones, and less thickness and weight in low
perimeter zones like the midfoot.

The adizero Rose 2.5 will be available in home and away colorways at
February 2 at Foot Locker, Eastbay and shopadidas.com for MSRP $110. The
shoe will roll out in six additional colorways through April so stay
