Derrick Rose and adidas re-release his first signature sneaker. Well, at least the adidas D Rose 1.5 — the Playoff version.
It’s always nice when you can try something out if you happen to have missed it the first time around.
While I’ve played in every D Rose signature sneaker, the original adiZero Rose and adiZero Rose 1.5 were two that I was unable to purchase for review. Back in 2011, I was still starting out with the whole sneaker review thing so I had a pretty limited budget for sneaker buying. We weren’t earning much ad revenue back then so we usually only bought one or two pairs per month. At the time, I went with the Nike LeBron 8 as they felt better on-foot when I tried them on in-store. However, with the recent Retro of the D Rose 1.5, I now have the chance to see what I was missing… once my torn calf heals, of course.
If you wanted a detailed look, review and my initial first thoughts on the adidas D Rose 1.5 Retro, then I hope you enjoy the video above.
Stay tuned for a performance review in a few months once I’m all healed and able to get back on-court.
Thanks for watching and supporting, especially if you’ve been here since the 2011 era. That feels so long ago!
If you happen to be interested Foot Locker still has a few sizes available though mostly larger sizes.
