Adizero Rose 1.5 - This is when it was called Adizero Lux. This concept was meant to be simple and real--real leather, suede, & patent leather. The idea was that it could come w/ leather oil to break down the flex zone leather like a baseball mitt.
The color is inspired by a GTR3, but it also referenced ashes. From the ashes of Chicago's infamous fire some of the greatest architecture rose. Derrick withstood his own neighborhood to make it to the NBA. Didn't go fwd; too sophisticated.
