adidas D Rose 5 Boost ‘Superstar’ – Official Look + Release Info

adidas today unveiled the latest colorway of the D Rose 5 Boost signature basketball shoe that pays homage to one of adidas’ most iconic shoes – the Superstar.

The D Rose 5 Boost “Superstar” edition is highlighted by the iconic rubber shell-toe, which was featured on the original Superstar in 1969 for added durability. The upper features a luxurious snakeskin texture throughout, while the Fit Cage and laces compliment in a cream color. The upper sits atop a full-length Boost midsole for maximum energy return and comfort for one of the NBA’s most explosive players.

The adidas Superstar was first released in 1969 and quickly transitioned from the courts to the streets. The silhouette has been a mainstay of street culture ever since, representing creativity and diversity across the world. For adidas Originals, 2015 marks the next chapter of the Superstar legacy with product drops and artist collaborations throughout the year.

The Superstar quickly went from a popular on-court model to an off-court model that still holds its own today. I do think that these would have looked their best if made into a low top, since that is how we are now used to seeing the Superstar – even though there are plenty of hi top versions – but maybe thats just me.

If you like what you see, the D Rose 5 Boost Superstar edition drops February 12 for $140.

  1. im loving them really stoked about more rose 5’s instead of going to 5.5 i look for better materials to be used on uppers like the Brenda ect. I’ve got the home and away alternate would 4 pair be silly with Boosts upgrades expected?

  2. i saw these in person today, man they look HORRIBLE when you hold them in hand, the upper is really bizarre, that plastic mesh-like web on top is covering some really stiff, cheap-looking plastic…worst thing of all is the fact that these are about $15 USD more expensive than the- really quite beautiful- brendas, which are in turn about $10 USD more expensive than the chicago ice ($15 more expensive than the first few colorways to release, which are now all on sale)…here in hong kong these joints will set you back the same as a pair of lebron 12s…

    what were adidas thinking, really?

  3. Can anyone with both Crazy Light 4 Boost and D Rose 5 give me their opinion on which shoe is better(cushioning, traction). I heard of reviews but wanted to know from personal experience. Thank you.
