Adidas introduces the AdiZero Rose 2 ($110), a continuity in the legacy of Derrick Rose’s signature shoe. NBA lockout or not, the reigning MVP deserves a new edition of his star sneaker. After the succes of the Rose 1.5, Adidas had a lot of work to come up with a better sneaker. On Rose’s request, the 3 Adidas stripes are places towards the heel, so defender can see them when running after him. More seriously, the adiZero Rose 2 includes a new cilia traction pattern outsole for an even better grip. Another major improvement is the introduction of an ankle strap to increases lockdown. The Rose 2 also rocks an amazing new look.
