adidas Rose 8 Performance Review

Derrick Rose ,he led the Memphis Tigers to the most wins in NCAA history (a 38–2 record), their first number one ranking in 25 years, and an appearance in the NCAA championship game. he is amazing.Is it his shoes  help  a lot ?

We will check it today .

Adidas D Rose with black, gold and white colorway. A departure from some of the more elaborate designs from earlier in the line, the D Rose 8 is a fairly simple high-top constructed with mesh and synthetic materials.

For material :

D Rose 8 is a fairly simple high-top constructed with mesh and synthetic materials, while retaining a Boost cushioning setup

D rose with a solid TPU fixing piece with a heel. Because I am used to wearing high-top shoes, there is no discomfort after the upper foot. Instead, I feel the full coverage of the ankle.

My feet step on the other’s footboard when I changed direction once game. The ankle was pulled straight when it was close to the twist, so I can keep going on but no any heart.That is amazing , so the protection of D rose 8 is nice .


It is worth mentioning that the D Rose 8 shoe is not used  a popular sock-style design in recent years, but it designed by feet and ankle , that is for  providing a great protection. This design allows the sides of the shoe to tightly clamp the ankle.  there is a phenomenon of slipping before and after, and this part is my feelings .

I tried  to move left and right, I quite appreciate the anti-rollover system that firmly grasps the forefoot to avoids overturning. This part of the film from the bottom grip shows that even the upper is not deformed.

For the traction :The traction is amazing .Grip is the most important  for me. Not only in the indoor clean court, but also on the outside, the gear-shaped engraving of the sole can effectively and conveniently eat the ground.But I found the traction will be more worn out quickly.

There a gold Adidas logo in the bottom.


For the cushioning : Boost is used on the D Rose 8 and it’s the same exact Boost slab we saw used on the Crazy Light 2016,but  i want to say the D Rose 8’s Boost is harder and more resilient than the Crazy Explosive series,but there is something about the Crazy Light 2016’s midsole that just feels like its the perfect blend of both.It’s top tier cushion in terms of impact protection and it doesn’t sacrifice stability or much court feel.



For the lace system ,D Rose 8 uses a high-density, thinner shoelace, which is also a pretty good configuration. First, the narrower the shoe tube will cause the back-sliding phenomenon to improve, and the tongue is a comfortable GEOFIT  foam material ,then the thinner laces can be wrapped tightly on top.




The D Rose 8 shoelace (middle) is thinner than the Adidas series  of shoes, with Dame 4 ( left)  and Crazy Explosive 2017 on the flat side.

We can see clearly that then the thinner laces can be wrapped tightly on top of GEOFIT  foam material.


For the Responsive : In order to achieve the highest degree of protection, the flexibility is lower than the pure low shoes . Of course, D Rose 8  will be less for the flexibility part. I believe the design team has found this situation, so they use the outsole to make appropriate improvements.


First of all, the sole is made of hard rubber material and matched with Boost’s original performance. After testing, it is found that as long as the energy of the whole shoe can be transmitted to the sole of the foot, the flexibility will be further improved, such as jumping or playing. When we striding forward, we can felt more feedback from the sole .

For the ventilation :

Although D rose  8 has been not more better than the Primeknit upper, the design team cleverly designed many “claw marks” on the inner layer of the pressurized mesh. This configuration does not affect the covering force and increases the breathability of the whole shoe. After more than 2 hours of testing, there is no sultry condition in the shoes. I believe the main reason is to benefit from the numerous breathable designs.


D Rose 8 followed the highest protection design principle, and it uses the pressurized mesh cloth and the full length Boost to maintain a very high technical performance. In addition, the design of the sole carving has won my heart, no matter if you are an ankle. Whatever you are a seriously injured player, or a “heavyweight” player who is worried about injury and pursuit of protection like me, that is a recommended shoes for you, I believe it will not let you down.

adidas D Rose 9 Performance Review

In 2008, I was fascinated by the NBA in my high school. When the ball won the first champion in that year , I was excited .Rose, his style of strength and speed quickly caught my eye. I was not  his fan at first , but after watched his game , I was attracted  by him .His ability to slash, rise, play defense, and lead a team reminded me . I was so excited to watched each game .


10 years gone, looking at Rose’s skills of basketball nowdays, although not as fast as ever before, but in the key battles, he still has been a key important player.Derrick Rose was well on his way to becoming the most lucrative athlete that adidas ever had in the world of basketball.

More importantly, Rose, who has experienced the ups and downs of life, is already an indispensable big brother in the Grey Wolf team.

Passing through the gorgeous and crazy years of youth, it is replaced by a calm and trustworthy charm, just like the new boots on his feet – D Rose 9.



During this year’s playoffs, Rose with  D Rose 9 came back, I will share with  you about  the experience of the new color of  D Rose 9 with the Summer Pack series



Infused with Primeknit and Adiwear technology, this D Rose selection is one of the most comfortable basketball silhouettes the Three Stripes has to offer. Aesthetically, it ushers in a vertical stripe pattern, as well as a number of stripes on its forefoot, heel, and toe.



This is the info of the Drose

adidas D Rose 9

Release Date: July, 2018

Style Code: BB7658



Materail : . The lines and folds in the material give the Rose 9 a definite casual-friendly look

D Rose 9’s upper is made of a special material , which feels a bit like memory foam. It can maintain comfort under the condition of satisfying many foot types.The test was completely uncomfortable, and the soles of the feet did not slip during the process after I take on in the fist hours


Here are more details as below :

Since D Rose 5 replaced the cushioning system for the first time, it changed from BOOST to BOUNCE.


For the warping  ,it is nice .A pair of shoes with excellent wrapping  must hold the soles of the feet firmly, and protect the feet well, but not too hard to cause pain, but also consider the ventilation problem caused by the material surface.

I am very sensitive to the slip phenomenon. The D Rose 9 has a very good shoelace system and the good material of upper .The part around the hole directly adopts the pressure line extending from the shoe body. So shoelace system sometimes causes a pressure on the instep, but  D Rose 9 upper just solves this problem , because of the materil reason.




After the model of D rose 5 , the adidas soothing technology BOOST was used in basketball shoes, which caused a sudden sensation. Later, many basketball shoes of adidas started to adopt BOOST. The Rose series shoes as pioneers continued to use this technology until D Rose 9 made a change.


Adidas used the Boost technology in basketball. Later, many basketball shoes of adidas started to adopt BOOST. But the D rose  just used the Bounce this time , so whats the difference between these material?


This attention to practical minimalism, while maintaining an aesthetic flair and upgraded functionality, fits nicely into the AlphaBOUNCE’s get-in-the-zone, get-in-the-flow story. You really shouldn’t be noticing your sneakers when you’re wearing them, and the Alpha ensures this type of subconscious comfort with its seamlessly integrated parts. A BOOST-equipped sneaker will cushion your foot with each pound of the pavement, before it springs back and returns the stored energy into your forward momentum. Although it might sound like a bit of cheat, it’s really just the result of some very clever thinking.

For me ,I was wearing D Rose 9 for various actions. The reactivity was definitely the most amazing , overall design of the upper  and the bounce cushioning are  my favorite part. Trying to change direction, shifting or even turning around can quickly convey the kinetic energy to the whole pair of shoes.I think that D Rose 9 is one of the most responsive of the series.


For the supporting : The wide base feels stable underfoot on every cut and move and the heel is locked in, keeping your ankle in its normal state.

The Rose 9 is as stable as ever before the part of  ankle. Because of the heel part added TPU , and the memory foam is filled on the ankle, but the thickness is not over-coated and maintains flexibility. The rest of the protection is from the huge tongue, so the feeling above the ankle is more comfortable and breathable than before.

For the traction : The traction pattern is great .The rubber material of the Rose 9 outsole uses ADIWEAR, which emphasizes wear resistance. In this test, I tested it in outdoor court. Except for some dust, there is almost no wear and tear, I felt great for the grip . With the combination of price and comprehensive technology, D Rose 9 is definitely one of the most effective shoes to be trusted in this summer.


Overall ,According to the color of the internet, it is mainly monochrome. This summer’s Summer Pack series brings more colorful feelings, especially the eye-catching outsole with three colors. I like it very much . The pure white upper looks fresh in the summer, followed by a pink Rose exclusive logo printed on the suede material to add texture, in short, although the appearance preference is more subjective .But I still want to say, I highly recommend  shoes! The great cushioning and material.

Adidas D Rose 9 Performance Review

Derrick Rose and Adidas released  the D Rose 9 this summer, a lot of people guess that it will be popular whole summer. Derrick Rose was well on his way to becoming the most lucrative athlete that adidas ever had in the world of basketball.So a lot of fans got the chance to  buy one .

For me , I am so lucky  that got one . we will check it today .

This D Rose selection is one of the most comfortable basketball silhouettes the Three Stripes has to offer , because of  it used  Primeknit and Adiwear technology ,we will look closely .

For the material: It is totally different compare with  D Rose 8 ,the  D Rose 9 used the Primeknit and Adiwear technology, but the a super basic Foam backed Mesh upper, so the D Rose 8 will be stiff . The  Primeknit will be soft and comfortable .Then the ventilation, the rose 8 will be better, because of it cut outs throughout the whole upper that keep your feet dry and fresh, as well as improves flexibility for more natural movement.

Here is the picture that D Rose 8.



For the supporting : The D Rose 9 will be better then Rose 8, there is a leather stretchy material to protect the heel and anti-rolling over when you playing.But for the D Rose 8, Non- stretchy Mesh & a small rubber works tandem to secure your foot from rolling over the footbed.


For the traction: It used  a vertical stripe pattern, as well as a number of stripes on its forefoot, heel, and toe.But the grip just so so. The D Rose 9 is more comfortable and soft. I mean more bounce.we can felt a lot for the responsive  since they do use forefoot a lot.

What about dusty courts then? Actually it will collect the dusty well . but just forgot it ….. all of shoes will be collect the dusty .

Here are more details as below :

For the cushioning ,it used bounce instead of Boost.While Rose has been wearing the Rose 8 on-court, so the D Rose 9  also has been followed the  bounce tech, it is work well as usually.It is  improved responsiveness this time .The  caged BOOST laterally in the forefoot/midfoot areas for direct BOOST energy kick directly to your foot.So you can feel a lot when you do whatever you do .This trick makes forefoot incredibly responsive which is perfect scenario for guards since they do use forefoot a lot.

For me, personally, I do enjoy more the D Rose 9, sweet spot between great lockdown and lightness, weather to have rock solid lockdown & feel too contained.

A vertical stripe pattern  anywhere . 


Overall , they do look like adidas run out of ideas creating another mad silhouette for D Rose, it is different compare with D Rose 8 , but the bounce has been felt a lot , the great responsive and soft material . It is worth the price .
