Christmas Loops, not hoops: Derrick Rose to wear shoes with CTA L map inside

The CTA will be represented in the Christmas Day Bulls season tipoff vs. the Los Angeles Lakers. Bulls reigning league MVP Derrick Rose will wear a special edition of his AdiZero Rose 2 shoes during the game.

Gapers Block reports: “The “Windy City” edition features the CTA’s “L” line map on the sock liner, “The L” on the heel and a blue pinstripe in honor of the Blue Line. According to a press release, “The upper is anodized to give the brushed metal look of train cars with a fire red finish to look like a holiday gift on the court.”

I like it.

  • In retrospect, it doesn't look like Derrick will be taking the 75 bus from his boyhood home to the Red Line to the Yellow Line, and then the 626 Pace bus to get to his job at the Berto Center in Deerfield.

    Also, it is reported that the trademark of the shoe violates some church's trademark.
