Adizero Rose 3 “Chicago Bears”
Is it just me or does every D Rose model seem just like a revamped version of the earlier model?
Even though Adidas says that they said they started from the ground up on this kick, you can clearly see where the influence from the 2.5 came in, especially around the ankle area and shape towards the heal. The back of the shoe, even though its not shown in the picture looks almost directly identical to the 3 stripe pattern used for the first d rose shoe. Is it just me or did Jordans actually have variation and uniqueness to each model? I feel like Adidas is putting WAY too much attention into performance, which I already thought was great to begin with in their adizero collection, and too little on detail and style. Unless they come out with some really stunning colorways (not just 100+ combinations of black, red and white) this shoe is almost a definite drop for me as of the 2012-13 season. But who knows, it could happen. I’ve been wrong about Adidas before and I hope I am again.
