Among all the signature shoes released by Adidas, the Adidas Adizero Rose is indubitably one of the most sought and successful sneakers. Since its release, it has spawned various models, which include the adiZero Rose 1.0, 1.5, and Crazy Light.
The reason behind the shoes’ popularity is its claim of being the lightest basketball shoes ever created. Both the adiZero Rose 1.5 and its predecessor adiZero Rose 1.0 weigh 12.8 oz, whilst the new adiZero Crazy Light weighs 9.8 oz.
With regard to its aesthetics and styling, the first Derrick Rose signature shoes feature a sleek and smooth style, which makes it wearable on court and even off court. From the shoe’s side profile, one can classify it as a low top supported by an ankle collar. The performance shoes feature the NBA superstar’s signature marks on the tongue lace holder, which bears the number one, Rose’s jersey number, and Rose’s signature on the shoe’s side nameplate.
At a fleeting look, the shoes seem too much to comprehend. Moreover, a three pattern PureMotion pods can be observed on the shoe’s soles, whilst the popular three-stripe Adidas signature can be found on the shoe heel sole up to the upper heel counter.
In terms of Adidas adiZero Rose 1.0’s performance, its light weight is the shoe’s asset in playability and speed, particularly in running. The sneaker’s design, hold, and weight make it one of the excellent choices when one aims for quick movements and solid performances on court. With various technologies present in the adiZero Rose, it is easy to shift from one direction to another, for the shoes easily respond to the feet’s movements.
Even though the shoes weigh 12.8 oz, it still holds outstanding stability. Adidas designed the Derrick Rose signature shoes to hold up its wearer’s weight and movement. It also has a start-and-stop ability that prevents sliding when its wearer promptly changes his direction from one way to another. Lastly, the Geofit ankle collar support system is helpful in providing breathability and comfort, as well as protecting the ankles during play.
