Today we’re excited to unveil the adidas D Rose 4.5 signature basketball shoe – the latest in a line of premium and personal signature products designed for Chicago Bulls point guard, Derrick Rose. We are all hoping to see D Rose back on the court soon, and when he does he will take the floor this latest release from adidas basketball.
While the D Rose 4 represented Derrick’s on and off-court personalities, the D Rose 4.5 design pays tribute to his attacking and relentless on-court play. The shoe features an all-new hybrid skin upper design that has a functional and stylish pattern representing the fastest and most unique animals on the planet while meeting Derrick’s high standards of style. The hybrid skin upper of SPRINTWEB and SPRINTSKIN enhances support on the lateral side of the shoe while working with the Crazyquick outsole on the medial side for ultimate performance. In addition to the performance features, each new colorway showcases special, personal graphics on the inside of the tongue including tributes to Chicago and his family and career. A special lace jewel on the bottom lace featuring the “ROSE” wordmark adds additional flair and style.
The adidas D Rose 4.5 launches tomorrow, January 30th, in stores and online in two new “Tigers” and “Bulls” colorways for $ 140. Check out images below and let us know what you think of the shoe in the comments.
Nike Basketball has blessed us with some of the top technologically advanced sneakers to date, and their latest innovation, the Nike Zoom HyperRev, has finally landed in Foot Locker. Developed with the speed and quickness of phenom point guard Kyrie Irving top-of-mind, the Zoom HyperRev maximizes performance and comfort. The upper features mesh and a dynamic Nike Flywire system made up of super-strong, ultralight nylon cables for locked-down support. The feel and responsiveness of the Zoom HyperRev is enhanced with the combination of full-length Nike Zoom and a lightweight Phylite midsole. Designer Leo Chang’s goal was to create a lightweight, breathable and flexible shoe that delivered a custom fit with proprioceptive feel. The shoe’s ankle support features flexible foam lining within the mesh. In addition to Kyrie, several other NBA stars such as Paul George, Andre Iguodala, Michael Carter-Williams, OJ Mayo, Rudy Gay and Demarcus Cousins have been rocking the HyperRev’s on court. Check out images here. The below colorways are now available in at House of Hoops by Foot Locker stores, and additional colorways are also now available for pre-order on Footlocker.com for $ 120. Check out the images after the jump and let us know if you’ll be picking up a pair in the comments.
To commemorate his 10th shoe with Jordan Brand, legendary shoe designer Tinker Hatfield worked with Carmelo Anthony to create an anniversary shoe that features unique design elements, industry-leading innovation, and sophisticated styling. The finished product, the Melo M10, celebrates Anthony’s game and his milestone anniversary with the Jordan Brand.
As the defending league scoring champion, Anthony is known for his versatility and style. During his first ten seasons in the league, Anthony has established himself as one of game premiere scoring forwards and a force in clutch situations. Anthony’s on-court skill and ability served as key influences for the design of the latest iteration of the Jordan Melo line. The design incorporates Jordan’s signature Flight Plate technology, offering maximum responsiveness through compression and deflection. The dynamic fit technology works with Flight Plate to provide a lock-down fit that moves with the foot and enhances maximum performance. The Jordan M10 will also feature molded quarter panels made with full-grain nubuck leather that offers a premium look, coupled with a TPU heel counter that provides stability and support. The heel counter features a chrome finish that incorporates Melo’s first cursive signature logo that was created for the first Jordan Melo shoe 10 years ago. Check out what Melo thinks of the shoe in the video below.
The Jordan Melo M10 debuts this Saturday, January 4th at Foot Locker, House of Hoops by Foot Locker and Footlocker.com (starting at 8:00 a.m. EST) for $ 165. Check out the Launch Locator to see which stores will have this release and let us know what you think of the shoe in the comments.
