Today the 2011 NBA Most Valuable Player and Chicago Bulls superstar point guard Derrick Rose turns 24 years old. We’ve talked with a number of #sneakerholics about adidas #thereturn campaign for Derrick Rose’s speedy recovery on Twitter and we’ve seen a lot of sneaker enthusiasts wearing the adidas basketball shoes in our weekly Sneaker Showcases, so we thought it would be good to revisit some of the Derrick Rose sneakers that have made their way onto the wiki since last year.
One of the most popular Derrick Rose sneakers over the last year has been the adidas 2.5, specifically this Lei Feng or China edition. The unique colorway stood out from the rest thanks to a furry inner lining and color combination we don’t see much on a basketball sneaker.

Another addition to the wiki since last year is the adidas adiZero Rose 2.0 L-Train edition. This colorway gets its name from the train line that cuts through Derrick Rose’s hometown neighborhood and was one of the most popular colorways of the adidas Rose 2.0.

Below is another recent addition to the wiki, a nice Chicago inspired colorway of the very first adidas adiZero Rose signature shoe. The patent finish is always a good look and helps this Derrick Rose sneaker stand out from the rest.

Now that we’ve seen a few Derrick Rose sneakers, let’s see if we can get some more uploaded for Derrick’s birthday (we’re still missing a number of 2.5 colorways like the St. Patrick’s Day and All-Star versions) and be sure to wish happy birthday on Twitter @drose.
Will you be the first to upload the newly released adidas Rose 3 to the wiki?
