Despite Adidas’ constant rise in sales, they went ahead with a colourway for Derrick Rose’s new D-Rose 8 sneaker, which is a little uncomfortable.

Rose’s latest signature shoe looks to be a New York Knicks-themed sneaker. The 2011 MVP spent last season with the Knicks but has since signed a one-year deal with the Cleveland Cavaliers.

The D-Rose 8 colourway features a dominant royal blue, with camo print filling panels along the toe and heel. Black headlines the tongue, laces, midsole and heel bumper, while orange fills the ‘D1′ logo on the tongue.

The shoe has the now infamous Boost cushioning, which featured on popular NMD, Ultraboost and Yeezy models and a uniquely patterned rubber outsole.

The Cavs still incorporates a Hardwood Classics scheme into its uniform system this season, so this colourway will still be relevant, but that uniform will not be used as frequently as their traditional jersey colours.

There’s no word of a release date yet, even though pairs have already hit retail in China.

Rose’s signature has come under constant scrutiny by all sneaker fanatics for being too clumpy and unwearable with players stating that it is slightly heavy to run in.
