Basketball superstars and fashion giants collide in adidas’ newest collaboration. Fashion icon Jeremy Scott has designed a new take on the D Rose 3.5, which will be available in limited quantities at just six retailers around the United States – including BAIT! Hit the jump for full details.
The adidas D Rose 3.5 x Jeremy Scott limited edition will be available at BAIT on July 6. For the special collaboration, Scott chose to use a clean white synthetic patent upper for Derrick Rose’s current signature shoe, adorning it with graphics of golden cherubs with boomboxes and money chains. The sneaker also features the signature D Rose logo in black on the tongue, and the Jeremy Scott logo on the back of the tongue and sockliner.
“I really wanted to meld my world and Derrick’s world,” Scott said of the design. “I used his shoes as a canvas and created the coolest cherubs in the world for the shoe.”
Scott presented the design to the Chicago Bulls superstar last week in Los Angeles. Rose fell in love with the fashionable take on his shoe.
“I can’t thank Jeremy enough for creating this shoe,” Rose said. “I love sneakers and to have Jeremy take the 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 shoe will be available at BAIT on July 6 for $225. Follow us on Twitter for release information as the date nears!
