Adidas Unveils Final D Rose 3 Colorway, The ‘Nightmare’

By Jay Casteel  |  12/11/2012

Adidas Basketball and Derrick Rose are set to drop the final colorway of his signature shoe, the D Rose 3.

Dubbed "Nightmare," the limited edition colorway is inspired by an opponent's mindset the night before facing D Rose on the court.

The purple, "vertigo" shimmer synthetic leather upper represents the bad dreams opponents have about guarding the 2011 NBA MVP. Other features include a glow-in-the-dark outsole, a black-and-white speckled midsole, and a wave-patterned, black-and-white laces.

On the inside of the tongue, you see 12-24-12, which represents the day this limited edition pair drops.

Adidas drops the D Rose 3 "Nightmare" on Christmas Eve for $180. Visit for further info.
