You can’t talk about the 90s without making a reference to a certain kid from West Philadelphia sent to live with his rich relatives in sunny California. Apparently, the Fresh Prince made a strong impression on a young Derrick Rose, as he pays homage with a special head-turning colorway of his Rose 3.0. Featuring a predominantly neon green upper and royal blue stitching, this shoe is not only court-ready, but also swagger-proof.
Being the signature shoe of one of the NBA’s most explosive athletes, the Rose 3 is well up-to-the-task of delivering comfort, stability and responsiveness. A synthetic leather upper over the top keep these shoes lightweight, while adidas’ SPRINTFRAME construction within the midsole keeps you stable.
If this particular color combination proves to be too loud for your liking, the Rose 3 is also available in the traditional home and away colorways for a sleeker and conservative look. The “Home” edition features a smooth nubuck-like upper, with perforations revealing a red inner lining. The “Away” version outdoes it counterpart in the sleek department, dressed in an all black leather upper that’s suitable for on and off the court.
