When we first showed you all the adidas D Rose 9 it had a Primeknit upper and what appeared to be Bounce cushioning. Now, it looks like the D Rose 9 will feature Bounce instead of Boost.
Perhaps Boost was too unstable, or the brand is trying to lower the cost of Derrick Rose’s signature sneaker, or Bounce can now protect against impact enough for Rose. Whatever the reason, the Rose 9 will be using Bounce instead of Boost.
While Rose has been wearing the Rose 8 on-court, someone (presumably Rose) was photographed shooting around in the Rose 9 today.
The Rose 8 was unveiled in China back in September, and with sneakers receiving shorter lifetimes than ever now, the D Rose 9 could be arriving sooner than the fall. We’ll update you when we have more information regarding a release date.
For now, let us know what you think about the adidas D Rose 9 so far. Are you excited for it? Uninterested in it? Sound off below.
