After the continued resurgence from former MVP Derrick Rose — including his career-high 50 point haul last season — along with a handful of on-court previews and leaks of his upcoming D Rose 10
, it’s safe to say that Pooh’s latest signature sneaker from adidas is one of his most anticipated in years. It is, of course, Derrick’s 10th signature sneaker, making him only the 8th NBA player in history to have released ten consecutive signature sneakers with the same brand. it’s also worth noting that adidas plans to begin retros of D Rose models this year, and with the point guard’s continued rise, the timing couldn’t be more perfect.The model is a celebration of the decade-long line, incorporating elements from all 9 sneakers that preceded it. A Bounce midsole and padded ankle collar/structured heel clip offer cushion and support in equal measures, while the outsole mixes herringbone and circular traction patterns for all-surface grip. The first five colorways have just dropped on hardenvol4.com, including pairs that pay homage to China — a country where he is so well-loved, as well as a shoutout to Simeon High, Derrick’s alma mater.Nike Air Foamposite Pro
will join the long list of silhouettes set to celebrate this year’s NBA All-Star Weekend festivities. This time around the sneaker carries on the DIY trend with interchangeable Swoosh logos. Set atop a white base, its color options consist of black, copper, silver, bronze, iridescent and a few others. Added details include a translucent outsole plus black detailing found the heel and tongue branding.There’s currently no confirmed launch date set for this iteration, but stick with us for more information as it’s expected to drop sometime this month.
