Though Derrick Rose is part of the long list of NBA stars sitting out the 2012 Olympics due to injury, his off-season sig is still dropping in the Olympic-themed colorway he intended to wear in London. This 773, named after Chicago's primary dialing code, sports a heavily perforated white synthetic upper with a SprintWeb overlay on the toe for added protection. Navy works the SprintFrame counter, tongue, laces, inner lining, trim along the base and midsole, while metallic gold fills in the upper eyelets and tongue overlay. The patriotic look is capped off with red on the 3-Stripe borders and outsole.
No word on when we'll see these drop stateside, but they've already hit retail overseas. Because that makes a ton of sense.
