DALLAS, Jul 3, 2013/ — Derrick Rose just entered the high street fashion game with the new adidas D Ros 3.5 signature shoe designed exclusively for the Chicago Bulls point guard by iconic fashion designer Jeremy Scott.
“I can’t thank Jeremy enough for creating this shoe,” said Rose. “I love sneakers and to have Jeremy take his time to create a shoe for me is crazy. This shoe is so cool, and having a chance to meet with Jeremy and talk about how he comes up with some of his designs was really fun.”
The two met in Los Angeles on June 27, where Jeremy presented Derrick with the first pair of the limited edition shoes that will launch at select retailers across globe beginning July 6.
