Derrick Rose is highly unlikely to make the 2016 NBA All-Star Game, but it’s not because he’s played poorly. Moreover, as he still continues to make more strides in his recovery from his multiple knee injuries, he’ll be well-represented with the adidas D Rose 6 Aurora Borealis, which celebrates the Northern Lights of winter on Earth and subtly makes notice on the stars that’ll play the game in Toronto.

adidas unveiled the D Rose 6 Aurora Borealis collection edition to celebrate NBA All-Star Weekend in Toronto.
The footwear collection is inspired by Toronto’s vibrant, cosmopolitan culture and the Northern Lights that paint the sky in upper parts of Canada. Engineered with glow in the dark styling and multicolor Primeknit, the models pair bright color palettes that blend gradient knit textures and purple accents to reflect the Aurora Borealis.
The D Rose 6 features a deep purple Primeknit upper woven with spires of glow-in-the-dark threads and details to represent the vibrant arcs that stretch across the Northern Lights. The silhouette is designed with teal accents on the heel cap, iced outsole and tongue, while rainbow reflective treatment on the D Rose logo caps off the Aurora Borealis collection.
The Aurora Borealis Collection launches at adidas.com in early 2016.
