In the video interview, Galway notes that the adidas intention for design has always been about innovation and having vision although technology in the market was not there. Spending time rethinking about the designers in their storied archive would do with access to modern technology, Galway spent time designing a dynamic silhouette overall. Marrying function and aesthetic, adidas Originals presents a new footwear silhouette out to change the game: the adidas Originals Tubular.
The newest colorway of the fifth edition of Derrick Rose’s signature shoe from adidas will be the “Home” colorway that drops tomorrow, November 6th. Worn by Rose at Madison Square Garden during the Bulls season opener last week, the “Home” colorway of his new shoe is a predominantly white version to match the Bulls’ home uniforms. Utilizing a breathable mesh around the laces, surrounded by white patent leather around the toe box and a full black and white speckled midsole/ankle piece, the Rose 5 “Home” is the most stylistically advanced release of the 5 we’ve seen so far. Red is responsible for the predominant accents on the shoe’s laces, heel tab, and fluorescent outsole while the Rose branding on the heel and inner lining are black. The Rose 5 visibly incorporates adidas’ revolutionary boost technology in the midsole.
The adidas D Rose 5 “Home” drops on Thursday, November 6 at Foot Locker and Footlocker.com (starting at 8:00 a.m. EST) for $ 140. Click here to buy the shoe online when it releases! The release will also be available in kids sizes.

This past July, the new adidas D Rose 5 was unveiled for industry insiders and it did not disappoint. Advanced Category Footwear designer Robbie Fuller and Derrick Rose presented the three-time All-Star’s new signature shoe, which features Boost cushioning: a technology designed to deliver maximum energy return, responsiveness and comfort to players. This specific colorway uniquely has Black accents, a set of blue laces and a dominantly Scarlet upper. Interestingly, the signature shoe removes the adidas stripes and instead puts the logo on the back of the shoe, which is a testament to the brand’s relationship with Rose.

The brand new D Rose 5 is the first adidas signature athlete model to feature the Boost cushioning, an industry-first technology designed to deliver maximum energy return, responsiveness and comfort to players. In addition is the first adidas signature basketball shoe to feature an athlete logo on the back heel, which Rose said was the coolest part of the shoe.

Back in the 70′s, an NBA player named Rick Barry was a great shooter and also shot his free throws in an interesting way. The adidas Top Ten Hi is associated with Barry and the mark he’s left on the game. Upon first glance the silhouette of the shoe is one that derives from that era. The sneaker sports a mostly all white full grain leather upper with red accents included on the side panels, tongue, out-sole and heel, all atop a 100% rubber sole. And should you decide to take these classics to court, you can rely on getting extreme ankle support, herringbone traction and comfortable padding.
Available in stores and online tomorrow.

The adi Pure Boost “Monochrome City Blur” should look familiar to some. It is the greyscaled version of a Pure Boost we wrote about a couple weeks ago, appropriately named the “City Blur.” Sitting atop the uber comfortable white Boost midsole, the “Monochrome City Blur” upper contains an abstract black and white graphic of traffic moving through a city. Black branding and overlays help to calm the busy nature of the graphic while bright red accenting on the outsole and tongue gives the kicks some color.
The pair is available in stores now and online at Footlocker.com for $ 120.
The adidas Originals ZX Flux Triple Black takes on the original ZX Flux silhouette and remixes it with a total blackout treatment. As you might have guessed from the nickname, the shoe combines three different shades of black to create sophistication through a minimalist color palette. The notable silhouette stands strong while flying under the radar on this release.

The adidas Originals ZX Flux launches in a new black/white “Monochrome Prism” colorway. The grey-scaled version of the first Flux incorporates many grey, white, and black triangles to cloak the entire upper of the shoe. The previous releases of the ZX Flux have been more colorful and bright, but if you were looking for a more subdued palette—look no further. The pattern is interesting enough to turn heads while not being too loud and over the top.
