Derrick Rose has put in a lot of sweat equity to bounce back from a career threatening knee injury. Now that he’s back on the basketball court, adidas continues to reward the former NBA MVP with a plethora of different versions of his latest namesake signature shoe, the D Rose 4.
Possibly the best silhouette of the shoe so far, adidas has unveiled the “Chicago Nightfall” colorway of the D Rose 4, which is set to hit retailers on November 21, 2013. Similar to the other versions of the shoe, the “Chicago Nightfall” version pays tribute to Rose’s hometown of Chicago. Unlike the others, however, the latest edition is a nod to the nightlife of Chi Town. The shoe’s purple tones represent the night sky and Lake Michigan while the bright yellow and metallic accents and collar lining represent the lights of the city and how they reflect on the sky and lake. It comes complete with D Rose branding on the tongue and collar.
