Damian Lillard & Derrick Rose - 'Adidas Boost' Launch Photos

On Sunday, the new D Rose 5 Boost and Crazy Light Boost Adidas basketball shoes were unveiled at an exclusive event in Las Vegas. Damian Lillard and Derrick Rose were both in attendance, as the primary NBA faces of Adidas. They even starred in a commercial together, demonstrating the innovative material that provides a high energy return (additional bounciness) to the wearer of the shoes.

 

 

Following the initial unveil, media members were given the opportunity to try out each shoe and shoot around with the Adidas athletes in attendance. Athletes included Lillard, Rose, Joakim Noah, Jrue Holiday, Jeff Teague, Arron Afflalo, Tim Hardaway Jr., and rookie Marcus Smart. Designed for added responsiveness and comfort, the new shoes stand to become very popular.
