Sneakersnstuff is the next stop on the adidas Consortium Tour. Since our inception basketball has run through the DNA of our brand. So to have the opportunity to contribute our vision and Swedish aesthetic to the adidas D Rose 7 PK is an honour.
Four those of you that need the background check on the model The D Rose 7 PK, is the signature shoe of Chicago-raised, New York Knicks point guard Derrick Rose. A gymnastic scorer, clairvoyant passer and ingenious playmaker.
When it comes to basketball footwear adidas pulls out all the stops, the Primeknit upper and BOOSTTM sole provide strength and support, flexibility and cushioning while additional grip on the sole allows the D Rose 7 PK to be super responsive.
Historically, there is a rich heritage of basketball footwear becoming casual footwear with time. However, today, models are already designed with a versatile aesthetic to fit both the sporting arena and the streets from the beginning. Rather than taking a decade to be embraced by the wider world, basketball footwear makes the immediate crossover.
The SNS D Rose 7 PK arrives in soft grey, with yellow and blue detailing. The two accents, the colors of the Swedish flag, are a and nod to Sneakersnstuff’s adidas Stockholm we designed a few years back and a reference to Derrick Rose’s highschool team.
To launch the adidas D Rose 7 PK, Sneakernstuff will be travelling to NYC to catch Derrick Rose in action with the New York Knicks against Oklahoma City Thunder. You can follow all the action and a preview of the shoe live on the Sneakersnstuff Instagram story on November 28th (EST).
