As we recently celebrated the Chinese New Year the other day, here’s another reason for us to celebrate China. A special colorway of DRose’s latest signature shoe, the adidas adiZero Rose 2.5, drops today. Although the more traditional colorways of the Rose 2.5 are dropping on the 2nd of February, it’s only fitting to have these drop this week.
For those who aren’t familiar with Lei Feng, he was a soldier of the People’s Liberation Army in China. He was a symbol of selflessness and modesty, that up to this day, is celebrated by the country. Seeing his traits are similar to how DRose is, the great guys over the Three Stripes put two and two together for this remarkable shoe. The special make up uses the army green color for the upper with red and gold hits throughout. There’s an embossed pattern of a screw on the SprintWeb as well as on the SprintFrame, this is in reference to a diary entry for the never-rusting screw in China’s revolutionary machine. Chinese characters are found on the heel, and to complete the Chinese Army look, faux fur is used in the lining right by the GeoFit ankle padding.
Select stores will be carrying the adiZero Rose 2.5 “Lei Feng” colorway and retails for 7,495 php.
