Adidas D Rose 3 “Alternate Away”

I had to think long and hard before writing this one. I’m a loyal Nike & Jordan Brand enthusiast and writing this post is akin to me joining the “dark side”. For Christ’s sake, the only pair of Adidas I own are golf cleats and the only reason I have them is because they were cheaper than the Nike cleats at the store at the time. SMH.

Anyways. I digress. I’ve been watching the releases of the Adidas D Rose 3, the signature silhouette of the Chicago Bull’s Point Guard extraordinaire, Derrick Rose. Adidas has put a lot of marketing muscle behind his upcoming return (#thereturn) to the hard court with the “D Rose 3”. Recently announced was the first limited release of the signature line, dubbed the “Alternate Away”. This sneaker features a predominantly black nubuck upper with their red SPRINTWEB technology. A speckled midsole and red outsole makes this sneaker complete. There are fine details on this one such as street signs from the blocks where Derrick Rose grew up in on the tongue along with the new D Rose logo.

This will be a limited release on November 1 at adidas Sports Performance Store at Water Tower Place in Chicago, the Broadway at Houston Soho location (NYC) and online at for $160. Will #thereturn be enough to persuade you to cop this sneaker? Let us know in the comments below!
