Inspired by Derrick Rose’s hometown neighborhood area code, the adidas Rose 773 comes in the eleven team colorways and features the 2011 NBA Most Valuable Player’s signature and elements from his previous signature shoes. The shoe features a top down satellite view of his Englewood roots and represents a view from high above. The aerodynamic SPRINTWEB toe provides lightweight stability for improved overall support while the breathable web layout keeps the shoe light and the foot cool.
Taking inspiration from the adizero Rose 2.5, Rose 773 features the same outsole construction and triangular memory foam collar to provide lockdown and comfort on the court. The shoe features a premium SPRINTFRAME execution to reduce weight, add support and allow maximum motion control. Signature details include “ROSE” on the tongue, number 1 on the toe box and Derrick’s signature on the heel. The three stripes branding on the back of the shoe represents Derrick’s speed on the court.
Looks like it’s time for me to retire my Fly Wade’s and pick up a pair of SkyBlue Rose 773′s!
