VIBE Kick Picks: Analyzing The “D Rose 3″


Here’s another round of this week’s hottest sneakers for our VIBE Kick Picks.

Last week, Adidas extended an invitation to VIBE to witness the unveiling of their new apparel collaboration with Chicago Bulls’ own Derrick Rose. Complete with a fresh logo, intricate design, and detailed business model, the biggest attraction of the day was definitely the new D Rose 3 sneaker.

We spoke with Lawrence Norman (Vice President of Adidas Global Basketball), Rob Lee (Head Of Adidas Global Design), Travis Blasingame (Apparel Designer), and Jack Gray (Footwear Design) to break down the sneaker into four aspects: the logo, the design, the color, and those infamous stripes.

The D Rose 3 launches at, Foot Locker, Eastbay, Finish Line and other retailers nationwide on October 4 for $160.
