adidas appears to be taking a step back with the latest D Rose 9, but we’re still excited to see what the shoe has to offer on-court.
Boost has been replaced with Bounce in the D Rose 9 and the signature packaging has been replaced with a plain black adidas box. Honestly, it’s a little depressing to see as I’ve played in every Rose model since the adiZero D Rose 2 and generally been excited for each new model.
However, the D Rose 9 does feature a tooling setup that I genuinely enjoy with Bounce. With the downgrades in nearly all aspects of the shoe, from materials to packaging, we were expecting to see a decrease in retail price. Unfortunately, that hasn’t happened. $140 is the current listed price, but we expect that to change rather quickly once the shoe goes on sale.
