A few of you have asked what the gray & black kicks Avery’s been rocking lately are. They are a tech gray colorway of the Adidas “Rose 773″. Part of Derrick Rose’s signature line, the Rose 773 is an 11.7 oz shoe designed with Adidas’ “SPRINTWEB” technology. Avery and Derrick are both Adidas athletes, but AB is without a signature shoe at this point in his career. We’ve seen plenty of NBAer’s rock the signature shoes of some of their competitors/rivals, and it’s always a controversial subject. Here’s some of Eastbay.com’s breakdown of the Rose 773:
The adidas Rose 773 basketball shoe pays homage to Derrick Rose’s hometown and the area code of his neighborhood in Chicago. The SPRINTWEB toe provides lightweight speed and stability. Contoured collar foam gives an enhanced fit and protection. The upper also features a rich mix of synthetic nubuck and leather that boosts support. The heel area features an embossed satellite view of Derrick’s neighborhood. The SPRINTFRAME chassis reduces layers and weight while providing excellent lockdown and support for the fastest players on the court.
