Who said you cannot give a rose to a man? Well, if it is adiZero Rose 2.5 that you will give him then he will surely love you for it, especially this season of love!
adiZero Rose 2.5! Released today at Php 6,995 only

Adidas Philippines launched last week at the Moro Lorenzo Gym of Ateneo De Manila University of the newest basketball shoes to rock the market this 2012. Basketball stars (JC Intal, Ronnie Magsanoc, Ryan Gregorio), celebrities (Andrei Felix), famous DJs (Rico Robles, Nikko Ramos aka DJ Tyler) and members of the press attended the event to see what is the buzz about the newest adiZero Rose 2.5. Aside from that, we also played a friendly basketball match to really test the shoes at competition level.

In terms of the shoes, it weighs even lighter than your average soda at 11 ounces. The adiZero 2.5 is the fourth signature shoe made especially for MVP Derrick Rose. The newest shoe can give any player the next level of speed and support. The adiZero Rose 2.5 is the lightest mid-cut signature basketball shoe Derrick has ever worn.  Here are some high-level specs of it as well:
Rose on the tongue of the shoes!
  • Signature Details - The adizero Rose 2.5 features a top down Google Earth view of Derrick’s Englewood roots embossed into the toe box and upper. The map view is a continuation of the “Cleared for Take-Off” theme of the Rose 2 and represents a view from high above.  Signature details include “ROSE” on the tongue and three stripes branding on the back of the shoe to emphasize his speed on the court.  The sockliner features an infrared color and Derrick’s signature as a nod to his motivation and inspired play on the court. Derrick’s jersey number “1” is also featured on toe.
  • Upper - Inspired by the adiZero Crazy Light, it features a premium SPRINTFRAME execution and enlarged SPRINTWEB area to reduce weight, add support and allow maximum motion control. The GEOFIT memory foam collar provides optimum comfort and fit.
  • Outsole - Uses adiZero Crazy Light outsole traction system and has varied engineered thickness to ensure maximum grip in high wear perimeter zones, and less thickness and weight in low perimeter zones like the midfoot

Aside from the shoes, we were also fortunate to try out the miCoach SPEED_CELL. You might be wondering that you only use miCoach for running but interestingly it is also great for measuring your performance as you play your favorite sport like basketball. The adiZero Rose 2.5 has a special slot to put your miCoach SPEED_CELL, which can turn your shoe into the ultimate digital training tool by letting you track and upload performance data including speed, maximum speed, number of sprints, distance, distance at high intensity levels and time. The on-board memory stores all your measurements during your game or training for up to seven hours and then wirelessly transmits the on pitch performance data to your tablet, PC or MAC. You can also create an avatar and share your stats with friends on Facebook, introducing  a fun and competitive edge to training the stats.

Players during the game are really at their all-time high proving the great impact of the shoe to their performance. At the end, Team 3 had their adrenaline rush to the extreme with all the great play, unbeatable defense, anti-gravity shots and shots beyond the rainbow arc. DJ Tyler of Team 3 even had 3 straight 3-points during the finals game. The winning team received a Php 60,000 worth of gift certificates from adidas. See pictures on slide show above.

Adidas also recognized the players with top speed, distance, intensity and sprints which was accurately recorded using the miCoach SPEED_CELL. The winners each receive a medal and gift certificates as well from adidas. There's even 1 player who got all 3 awards during the event with his great performance during the day.

VERDICT: RECOMMENDED! I got the white variant of the shoes and I must say that I really like it. I love the design even the black variant is also great. I also like its mid-cut especially for me who is not that tall. I can also wear it even outside of the hard court and still be stylish with its great design and color combination. In terms of performance, given its "very" light weight one can really feel the difference in terms of speed when using the shoes. I also like the shoes as it is very comfortable and not that heavy or tight. Aside from that, it would really be best to couple it with the miCoach SPEED_CELL to measure your performance improvements. I think its great that adidas innovated to make their basketball shoes home of their SPEED_CELL and not only for running.  If you have the money, you can buy both Home and Away look just like D. Rose.
