Who should NOT buy the D Rose Son of Chi from Adidas

The Adidas D Rose Son of Chi is just not for those who want and/or need a lot of cushioning and impact protection. They are better off with the Adidas Pro Model 2G or even the LeBrons from Nike.

This shoe may also bring problems to those who do not like a snug fit. This one is a bit narrow around the midfoot to the forefoot, and the materials aren't stretchiest, so pressure is definitely there. The Adidas Dame 7 may be a safe pick for them. 

Amazing bite, that's what the D Rose Son of Chi provides! 

This basketball shoe from Adidas has a truly commendable grip, especially on cleaner courts. It's quite a bummer that the outsole easily attracts dust, but it's not something that a wipe cannot address.

Court feel that you just can't ignore

It's clear that this shoe was made for guards. After all, Derrick Rose is himself a point/shooting guard. The shoe is low to the ground and really delivered a lot of response.

Some players, however, may find the materials too stiff.  They might even feel some pinching around the midfoot.
