The adidas D Rose 4.5: Brenda

D Rose 4.5 Light Scarlet-Black-White Hero (G66977)

Just as beautiful as the black, the adidas D Rose 4.5 has also debuted in light scarlet — most likely to honor Derrick Rose’s mother, Brenda.

It’s a brilliant shoe that sparkles and shines and plays on light. Fashioned like a rose itself, this Brenda colorway is luxurious in its textiles and is an instant classic through and through.

The gold accent logo on the lateral side is a wonderful touch, and really, there’s just no getting around this shoe being the tops of adidas’ historical catalog. It’s magnificent, and the Brenda colorway does it all the justice in the world.
