The traction of the new D Rose 11 nods to the D Rose 7s, which arguably had the best traction technology from the former MVP’s line. The herringbone pattern from the D Rose 7 worked well whether it is played indoors or outdoors, and regardless if the outsole was made of solid rubber or translucent outsole.
Just like the D Rose 7, the D Rose 11 will be released in both solid rubber outsole and translucent outsole. Both of these are really expected to work well. The traction bites well when stopping, shifting directions, and gliding without causing many strains.
Assuming that Adidas will be able to duplicate not only the grip and performance of D Rose 7’s outsoles but also the durability, then Adidas D Rose 11 will be the real deal whether using indoors or in black tops.
Some additional aesthetics of the Adidas D Rose 11’s outsole is the flame-like image created by the directions of the herringbone patterns.
