Derrick Rose and Adidas released the D Rose 9 this summer, a lot of people guess that it will be popular whole summer. Derrick Rose was well on his way to becoming the most lucrative athlete that adidas ever had in the world of basketball.So a lot of fans got the chance to buy one .
For me , I am so lucky that got one . we will check it today .
This D Rose selection is one of the most comfortable basketball silhouettes the Three Stripes has to offer , because of it used Primeknit and Adiwear technology ,we will look closely .
For the material: It is totally different compare with D Rose 8 ,the D Rose 9 used the Primeknit and Adiwear technology， but the a super basic Foam backed Mesh upper, so the D Rose 8 will be stiff . The Primeknit will be soft and comfortable .Then the ventilation, the rose 8 will be better, because of it cut outs throughout the whole upper that keep your feet dry and fresh, as well as improves flexibility for more natural movement.
Here is the picture that D Rose 8.
For the supporting : The D Rose 9 will be better then Rose 8, there is a leather stretchy material to protect the heel and anti-rolling over when you playing.But for the D Rose 8, Non- stretchy Mesh & a small rubber works tandem to secure your foot from rolling over the footbed.
For the traction: It used a vertical stripe pattern, as well as a number of stripes on its forefoot, heel, and toe.But the grip just so so. The D Rose 9 is more comfortable and soft. I mean more bounce.we can felt a lot for the responsive since they do use forefoot a lot.
What about dusty courts then? Actually it will collect the dusty well . but just forgot it ….. all of shoes will be collect the dusty .
Here are more details as below :
For the cushioning ,it used bounce instead of Boost.While Rose has been wearing the Rose 8 on-court, so the D Rose 9 also has been followed the bounce tech, it is work well as usually.It is improved responsiveness this time .The caged BOOST laterally in the forefoot/midfoot areas for direct BOOST energy kick directly to your foot.So you can feel a lot when you do whatever you do .This trick makes forefoot incredibly responsive which is perfect scenario for guards since they do use forefoot a lot.
For me, personally, I do enjoy more the D Rose 9, sweet spot between great lockdown and lightness, weather to have rock solid lockdown & feel too contained.
A vertical stripe pattern anywhere .
Overall , they do look like adidas run out of ideas creating another mad silhouette for D Rose, it is different compare with D Rose 8 , but the bounce has been felt a lot , the great responsive and soft material . It is worth the price .
