The adidas D Rose 5 signature shoe is among this year's most popular basketball kicks. We like its badass looks and the fact that it has Boost technology, which aims to help us perform better while playing ball.

Here's a video to explain things:

We also like the fact that it's made for Derrick Rose. While we won't be able to replicate the Chicago Bulls' superstar guard's moves (who can?), we're kinda okay with just having the same shoe as him. That's fandom and sneaker geekery at its finest. 

We have one very minor beef when it was first launched though: We wished it came in more colors to match with our many barangay league jerseys. Well, lo and behold, adidas has granted our little request! The D Rose 5, which is available locally for P7,995, can now be had in more colorways!

For a better appreciation of this kick-tastic development, here's the "default" look:


And here's the D Rose 5 with a patterned, grayish-white side support:

Notice the gray boundaries of the sole which previously came in black.

The whole package has that "stone cold" look. Your opponents will see this as a sign that you're about to throw bricks give them an, ahem, hard time.

This next colorway is for those who want to keep it simple. Gray all the way, baby!

The sole lining up front for this one is in red, a nice contrast to the gray exterior.

The laces are also in a darker hue which goes well with the rest of the look.

Here's the dark teal variant. Yes, DARK TEAL. Yes, the same color as your GF's favorite dress. And yes, it also works for sneakers! Who knew, right?

The mesh comes in a blocky weave pattern while the laces are sprinkled with black dots.

The D Rose 5 logo is now in grayish-white, making it stand out.

There you have it, sneaker freaks! Go wear a pair and break some ankles!
