D Rose 4 "SouthSide"
Manila, Philippines -- Representing his roots is what D-Rose is all about. Like the previous stories from his signature shoes, Rose makes sure he pays tribute to the city of Chicago.
Dubbed as “Chicago Southside”, the color blocking on the shoe pays tribute to Rose’s roots and his high school, Simeon Career Academy, the famed school that produced the legendary High School baller Benjamin "Benjie" Wilson, a basketball phenom that fell victim to a shooting incident. It was a very tragic incident that instead of stopping ballers like Rose from dominating on the basketball court, it further inspired them to be better basketball players.
“I never forget where I came from and the path I took to get here,” said Rose. “The first time I played for my city on a big stage I wore these colors (The Simeon Career Academy Colors), and that’s why I love these. It’s a color I can wear to show pride and let my fans know more about where I’m from,” he added.
The adidas D Rose 4 represents the transition of Derrick from his focused, humble and understated off-court personality to his fierce, attacking and aggressive on-court playing style. The bright blue front half of the shoe features a metallic finish to represent the trophies and accolades Derrick earned during his high school career in Chicago which includes two Illinois Class AA State Championships, McDonald’s All-American honors and Illinois Mr. Basketball. The back half of the shoe features a GEOFIT collar and SPRINTFRAME contrasted in electricity.
