Today we’re seeing new images of the adidas Rose 3.5 “Year of the Snake”. As we’ve told you guys before, the shoe pays homage to the Chinese New Year, which begins on February 10. The design is dominated by a black synthetic SPRINTWEB upper with a textured, scale pattern to represent a snake’s skin.
Meanwhile, the SPRINTFRAME is chrome and metallic gold, adding some contrast to the look. Other features include an icy outsole, as well as shoe laces,a toe, and liner that feature a turquoise contrast to represent water, the key element for the 2013 Chinese New Year.
All the while, the inside tongue patch features black, gold and turquoise colors surrounding the Derrick Rose logo in various shapes designed to represent the spiral inspiration of the shoe.
Look for the sneaker to drop on January 24th at shops including adidas Basketball, with retail set for $160.
