The adidas Rose 3.0 basketball shoe is inspired by Derrick’s humble roots and exciting play. The Rose logo features three petals that revolve around a subtle letter D and number 1 in the center. The petal’s sharp edges represent his speed and agility on the court and each one is unique to pay homage to the creative cuts, slashes and shots he makes on the court. The petals also symbolize the foundation that brought Derrick from the playgrounds of Englewood to NBA superstardom - his mother, Brenda, in the center, and his brothers Allen, Reggie and Duane as support. Just as sharp, crafted and lethal as D-Rose's game, these shoes are what separates an MVP from the others. Synthetic leather upper for optimal light weight and durability. SPRINTFRAME construction provides stability and speed through geometrical research to create a lightweight and supportive basketball chassis. High rebounding injected EVA midsole offers longer resiliency and response over time. More EVA through the midfoot delivers stronger torsional and midfoot stiffness for side-to-side cuts. An increased ground contact and enhanced traction for ultimate grip. Features a full-length branding on outsole for an aggressive, signature look. miCoach compatible. Wt. 11.5 oz.
Makes you fast!!!

I purchased this product for:myself
I purchased this product:less than a month ago
The athletic skill level of the person using this product is:advanced
This product is primarily used/worn for:participating in a sport
Very light shoe. Great traction. I love the SprintFrame technology. Also the platinum/silver/chrome color is very appealing and will turn heads on and off the court. Looks great with jeans too. Currently my go to performance shoe. I like these better than my Super.Flys and are more comfortable in the fore-foot area. I have no complaints with the Rose 3 Low.
Derrick Rose and Adidas Basketball have a winner here. I look forward to more collaborations from them.
Pros: breaks in easy, good traction, lightweight, cool colors, runs true to size, easy to clean, durable, comfortable, stays clean a long time, breathable
With its rugged good looks and excellent performance under pressure, the Timberland Euro Hiker is as at home on the city streets as it is on a mountain trail.
Premium full grain leather upper for comfort, durability, and long-lasting wear.
Padded collar and tongue for a comfortable fit around the ankle and top of the foot.
EVA midsole for all-day comfort, lightweight cushioning and shock absorption.
Removable cushioned footbed for comfort.
Steel shank for arch support
Rubber lug outsole for durability and maximum traction on any surface.
Fits .5 size big.
PROS: I ordered both the black and oil brown Euro Hiker. I ended up keeping the brown and returned the black hikers (for some Nike Goadome boots) as the black ones tend to bend in the front and the browns didnt. Plus the oil brown can be match with anything without looking too formal. Very versatile, durable, not heavy and can be worn with almost any kind of use on almost any kind of day. Love the shoe strings and the thick army green tongue. I have narrow feet, and these did not seem too wide for me.
CONS: Inaccurate sizing. I normally wear a 11 or 10.5. I went through a few exchanges and ended up settling for size 9.5. They are very long inside the shoe. Even with Timberland SmartWool socks on I still feel like I have a little toe room left in the size 9.5. I have yet to completely break them in so maybe I should just keep wearing them to see if they will form onto my foot more. I'm still debating if I want to send them back for a 9 just to see if I would be 100% satisfied.
These are fantastic shoes. But I would order at least a full size down.
Pros: stylish, durable, easy to clean, comfortable
Jordan takes on-court performance and makes it 'Super Fly.' The Jordan Super.Fly shoe showcases an upper crafted with Nike’s innovative Hyperfuse construction that decreases the overall weight and provides unparalleled breathability thanks to its ventilated one-piece composite construction. An additional layer of material is added to the toe for enhanced durability in this high-wear area. This new basketball experience also showcases angular side vents, offering maximum flexibility and ventilation. Each cutout is strategically placed to align with design lines on the midsole to create an anatomically informed fit. Below the performance boosting upper construction is a Phylon™ midsole outfitted with a Nike Zoom unit in the heel for a low-profile feel, Lunarlon foam in the forefoot for a soft and responsive ride and a 3D, glass-reinforced midfoot shank for support. The finishing touch is a basketball specific, solid rubber outsole with a data-informed traction pattern that’s designed to provide excellent multidirectional traction where you need it the most – creating a shoe that performs at a level above air. Wt. 13.2 oz.
Hey I would like to know how much height the Super Fly's will give you on the court? Thanx
