Derrick Rose was in Chicago today to promote his third shoe in the adidas Derrick Rose signature line, the adidas D. Rose III.

While answering questions during his #TheReturn campaign, Rose was asked about the inspiration he’s receiving from his fans during this tough time. The question his a soft spot for Rose, who shed tears while making his statement.

Derrick was quoted as saying: “The D Rose 3 signature collection is special to me because I worked side-by-side with adidas on everything from materials to fit to colors to make it the best we’ve done yet,” said Rose. “I love the new logo that calls out the most important things to me: my family, basketball and the city of Chicago.” (Thanks to Andrew Barber from FSD)

Rose tore his ACL in the first game of the 2012 NBA Playoffs, and isn’t expected back until late Feburary. adidas has created a marketing slogan dubbed “#TheReturn” in anticipation of Rose coming back this season.

The signature shoe will release in stores on October 4th, and will be available at most retailers. Hoodies, t-shirts, socks and shorts from the collection will also be available.
