The adidas D Rose Son of Chi may not be the next signature D Rose model, but it feels like it’s going to perform well nonetheless.

We’re also glad that Derrick Rose is finally getting back that signature athlete treatment from adidas. Such a shame that the brand made it feel like he was second tier for a while.
