I’ve always been a huge fan of Derrick Rose‘s commercials. They are always organic, emotional, passionate, and almost always make it seem like Rose is embarking on some personal mission that deserves more than just our undivided attention. It’s been that way since the very beginning and actually, at least I believe, adidas went to a new level during Rose’s time rehabbing over the past few years. The majority of his commercials have never been about making him look “cool” or making him look like a star. They showcase his will and determination and how he’s been putting on for his city forever. That’s a breath of fresh air and something rarely seen among today’s athletes. (Don’t forget, you must also give Rose credit for opening up about a lot of this stuff. Many athletes wouldn’t do it…or sound genuine.)
Tomorrow at Champs Sports, another colorway of the adidas D Rose 5 Boost is dropping and I have to admit that this is my favorite one so far. With a dope black and white concept, along with a translucent sole, you can’t go wrong. Just like all of his kicks, this one digs into the depth of Rose’s relationship with Chicago, as well as with his family and friends and childhood.
All of that comes to fruition within his commercials, and while we’re waiting on the first truly classic one to showcase the adidas D Rose 5, we can look back with some confidence and say that, well, if all of the earlier sneakers can get laced with awesome ads, we should expect the same for this shoe. Here are Derrick Rose’s Best Sneaker Commercials Ever.
