Today, adidas officially unveils the limited edition "Chicago Fire" D Rose 3. The bold and bright electricity-colored shoe is inspired by the Chicago Fire Department in Derrick’s hometown.
Featured on the shoe's upper is a heavy duty rubberized synthetic material that resembles the strong, protective feel and function of a firefighter's turnout coat. Reflective stripes on the heel and outsole are done in grey to represent the color of the knee and elbow pads on coats and coveralls. The black SprintFrame counter has a smooth, clean finish to signify rubber fire boots.
The inside of the left tongue features the universal cross symbol of firefighters with the D Rose logo in the middle and the right shoe features a lasered Derrick Rose signature.
