Sneakerheads who happen to be basketball enthusiasts will agree that Derrick Rose happens to be one of the most recognizable athletes in the NBA. His first signature sneaker after he signed with adidas was the adiZero Rose 1, which debuted back in October 2010. Seven years have passed since then and Derrick Rose not only has 7 primary signature models, but also multiple variations as well in between as well, such as the adiZero Rose 1 and the D Rose 4.5. It seems that the relationship between adidas and Derrick Rose has stood the test of time because it seems his latest signature sneaker model is on its way.
As sneakerheads might recall, adidas really started innovating the D Rose sneakers back in October 2014 when the Boost cushioning system was incorporated into it. The D Rose 5 Boost really was the first of its kind in the line. At the time, it was Derrick’s most favorite signature shoe and wore them on hardwood for several months. According to him, the D Rose 5 Boost felt “like a new shoe” every time he put a pair on. In recent times, adidas even introduced Primeknit technology into Derrick Rose’s signature sneaker line, with the D Rose 7 Primeknit being the latest model featuring it.

Derrick Rose’s eighth signature sneaker appears be high-top, with uppers made up of a mesh and synthetic material. Its midsoles apparently have Boost cushioning incorporated into them and it is equipped with translucent outsoles. This is very likely the debut colorway of the D Rose 8, which appears to be dressed up in a combination of Black, Gold and White. Although not visible in the photo, the inner tongues of the sneaker reportedly also feature a unique graphic.
Many sneakerheads are probably wondering that this sneaker would be quite ideal to be worn during Halloween and fortunately, this sneaker will actually hit the shelves just in time. Derrick Rose’s adidas D Rose 8 is scheduled to make its retail debut on October 28th, 2017, but the price at which it will be available has yet to be revealed.
