The Adidas D Rose 6 Boost drops this weekend in the white / light gray “Home” color — with a smooth partner in brown/tan /black core that Adidas has dubbed the Boost “South Side Lux.” Derrick Rose was the future of Adidas before injuries brought the madly talented Bulls guard to the ground. The 2011 NBA MVP returns to Chicago healthy this year — well, except for a busted eye socket — and with massive ambitions. Rose is being challenged by a new coach, a new situation and a new Adidas basketball king in James Harden — down by Houston way.
The Rose 6 Boost will give him every advantage, as one of the quickest players in history tries to return to MVP form and lead a stacked Chicago squad past their recent playoff inefficiency. Rose so far is the only one who knows how the new Rose 6 boost feels — there isn’t yet a single review on adidas.com. The kicks are $140. You can also design your own.
