Adidas adiZero™ Rose 2 - Christmas L-Train

The Adidas adiZero™ Rose 2 "L-Train"

An end to the NBA lockout last month brought a sigh of relief to not only the players and owners, but basketball and sneaker fanatics starving for the season to begin.  Christmas day marks the start of a shortened 2011-2012 season, a perfect present for those who treasure the game.  For sneaker fans, the start of the season can not have come at a better time, as special Christmas edition signature models from all the major superstars will be on display, following the trend of years past.  One of the featured games this year involves the Chicago Bulls and reigning MVP Derrick Rose.  Last Christmas, Rose debuted a festive Christmas red and black version of the Adidas adiZero™ Rose 1.  On this Christmas Eve our Spotlight Special continues the new Derrick Rose tradition with the L-Train version of the Adidas adiZero™ Rose 2.

Adidas adiZero™ Rose 2 - Christmas L-TrainJust like the Christmas Rose 1, the red and black on the L-Train is a great fit for the Holiday season and appropriately matches the uniform of the Chicago Bulls.  The deep bright red covers the Splatter Traction Surface on the outsole, brushed synthetic material on the toe box & Addias stripes on the heel, as well as the Sprint Web & nylon openings on the quarter panels.  More red covers the lining and tongue, which is made of grain leather on the lower half, and the brushed synthetic below the “ALL FLIGHTS CANCELLED” tag.  The shiny Sprint Frame is done in black, as is the leather section around the Achilles, and the white midsole bears the splatter pattern from the outsole.  Finally, the L-Train theme, which takes passengers to Chicago-O’Hare International Airport, is represented with the Intense Blue.  Providing a eye catching accent, the Intense Blue is observed on the “adizero” branding on the sides, special laces (which are included along with the standard black laces), and “The L” logo on the heel.  Last but not least is the insoles, which carry the “cancelled” theme on one and a map of the Chicago transit system on the other.
Adidas adiZero™ Rose 2 - Christmas L-TrainA league best regular season record and an MVP award for Derrick Rose came to a surprise to many basketball experts in the 2010-2011 season.  This season, Rose and the Bulls have lofty expectations, and what a better way to start their quest than against perennial Championship contenders, the Lakers, under the glitz and glamor of Los Angeles in the Staples Center.  Christmas Day 2011 looks to be one where basketball fans can sit back and enjoy with a smile.  Will Derrick Rose debut the L-Train on the court, or will sneaker fans be treated to another special version?  Whatever the case may be, the L-Train version of the adiZero™ Rose 2 is available now at the Official Adidas Online Store.
