After months of leaks, the adidas D Rose 9 has finally released — coincidentally, right after Derrick Rose agreed to a one-year deal with the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Former MVP Derrick Rose will rejoin coach Tom Thibodeau, with whom Rose had the best season of his career; in 2010-11, under Thibodeau, Rose became the youngest player to win the NBA MVP award, according to the NBA. That season, Rose averaged 25 points, 7.7 assists, and led the Chicago Bulls to the best record in the NBA and Eastern Conference Finals.
To mark Rose’s $2.393 million signing with Minnesota, adidas.com has stocked the D Rose 9. While the price of Rose’s signature shoe hasn’t changed from the $140 we saw last season, adidas is charging the same price for cushioning that isn’t Boost. The D Rose 9 features full-length Bounce cushioning, a knit upper with synthetic leather details, and a sock-like construction that should hug the forefoot.
The adidas D Rose 9 is only available in one colorway, Cloud White/Shock Pink/Core Black, for $140 at adidas.com in size 7 to 15.
While we wait for more handsome colorways to hit adidas and Eastbay, check out the adidas D Rose 9 in black/red.
