A mother’s love is not normally a haven for sneaker inspirations. But for one man in particular, things are different. Enter the new “Brenda” colorway of the adidas D Rose 5 Boost, available at Champs Sports.
Derrick Rose has had a slow start to the season, averaging well below his career numbers for the Bulls, who are visibly sliding underneath the expectations many had for them at the start of the season. However, the D Rose 5 has been killing it, from one colorway to another. Outside of the colors, it all starts and ends with the new Boost, an industry-first technology that provides players with maximum energy return and responsiveness. The Rose 5 is also the first signature to host the tech.
“Having the Boost cushioning in my new signature shoe makes it the most favorite of mine that we’ve ever done,” Rose said at the sneaker’s initial launch. “I’ve played in them for a couple months, but every time I put them on it feels like a new shoe and it’s the most comfortable shoe I’ve ever worn. Now, I can’t imagine playing without Boost in my shoes.”
It’s never wrong to tell your mother you love her. You may not be able to dedicate a colorway of your signature sneaker to her, but you can definitely do your part. And the best way to do that this year is to up your swag with some kicks that’ll have you feeling good whether you’re on the floor or off it.
