Chicago Gets "Windy City" Edition of Derrick Rose's New Shoe

When we were younger, we lusted after each new pair of Air Jordans. Now, MJ has traded in his jersey for a suit and the Bulls' Derrick Rose is the NBA's reigning MVP.

Like Jordan, Rose has his own shoe: The Adidas AdiZero Rose 2. Perfectly timed to coincide with the end of the NBA lockout, Adidas recently introduced a special "Windy City" colorway of his signature shoe that include details like an "L" map on the inside sockliner.

The outside features the Bulls' familiar black and red, along with blue stripes inspired by the Blue Line. The kicks began popping up in Chicago area Foot Lockers last week, and will roll out nationwide in stores and online on Dec. 15.
