The D Rose Lethality was released on July 11, 2018, just days before the official release of the D Rose 9. Unlike the the rest of Derrick Rose’s basketball shoes, the Lethality carries the Cloudfoam midsole. The upper is made of a synthetic material with ribbed mesh for ventilation. The forefoot is overlaid with a seamless film for durability. The outsole comes with a solid rubber and the herringbone traction pattern.
Cushion. Pretty much like the cushioning technology used on Stephen Curry’s 6th signature shoes from Under Armour, the Cloudfoam is an upgraded EVA foam that is originally designed for running. It is lightweight and is built for lasting comfort, and it allows the D Rose Lethality to deliver maximum and optimized comfort as one goes on with his day. This cushioning is for anyone and everyone.
Traction. The Adidas D Rose Lethality boasts the tried-and-true herringbone traction pattern. The outsole is made of solid rubber for durability and good performance.
Length and Width. There are not a lot of reports regarding the size of the Adidas D Rose Lethality. New buyers are advised to fit the shoe in-store before buying online.
Lockdown. The Adidas D Rose Lethality utilizes a standard lacing system. The shoelaces are adjustable to obtain the right fit. To keep the tongue in place, the laces can be made to pass through a tongue loop. The tongue and ankle collar are padded to ensure comfort.
The upper of the Adidas D Rose Lethality is a combination of synthetic material and ribbed mesh. The high-wear zones are fused with a seamless film.
The low-top silhouette of the Adidas D Rose Lethality comes with a simple design. The Three Stripes logos are found on the sides, tongue, insole, and outsole. The prominent D Rose logo is found on the heel.
The Adidas D Rose Lethality are released in a few colorways:
- Core Black/Footwear White/Grey Five
- Core Black/Grey Five/Gold Met
- Core Black/Scarlet/Footwear White
