When in Manila and looking for your next pair of kicks, check out the adidas adizero Rose 2.5, the fourth installment of Derrick Rose’s signature shoe. Weighing only 11 ounces, the adizero Rose 2.5 has upgraded most of its features to provide D-Rose his need for speed and maneuverability.

The adizero Rose 2.5 features a top down Google Earth view of Derrick’s Englewood roots embossed into the toe box and upper. Signature details include “ROSE” on the tongue and three stripes branding on the back of the shoe to emphasize his speed on the court.  The sockliner features an infrared color and Derrick’s signature as a nod to his motivation and inspired play on the court. Derrick’s jersey number “1” is also featured on toe.

Patterned from the previous adizero Crazy Light line up, it features a premium SPRINTFRAME execution and enlarged SPRINTWEB area to reduce weight, add support and allow maximum motion control. The adiZero Crazy Light outsole traction system is utilized and has varied engineered thickness to ensure maximum grip in high wear perimeter zones, and less thickness and weight in low perimeter zones like the midfoot.

If that won’t get you excited, the Rose 2.5 is also powered by miCoach, making it the smartest basketball boot by far! miCoach turns the shoe into the ultimate digital training tool by letting you track and upload performance data including speed, maximum speed, number of sprints, distance, distance at high intensity levels and time.

All of this can be done by the revolutionary miCoach SPEED_CELL. All you need to do is snap it on your laces or tuck it inside the Rose 2.5 (yes, there is a small compartment for the SPEED CELL. Cool eh?). The miCoach SPEED_CELL captures 360-degree movement and measures key performance metrics including speed, average speed (recorded every second), maximum speed (recorded every five seconds), number of sprints, distance, distance at high intensity levels, steps and stride rates. The on-board memory stores all your measurements during your game or training for up to seven hours and then wirelessly transmits the on pitch performance data to your tablet, PC or MAC.

The adiZero Rose 2.5 Home & Away colors retail at Php 6,995 and will be available this February 2 at adidas outlets. adidas will also be launching exclusive colorways (below) of the adiZero Rose 2.5 in adidas stores located at Trinoma,Greenbelt3, Powerplant Mall, SM Malls and at Titan:
