Hundreds Descend Upon Hackney to Meet Derrick Rose

Derrick Rose Crowds

NBA superstar Derrick Rose took over Hackney on Wednesday, as hundreds of fans showed up to meet him and got a chance to win a pair of Derrick Rose 3.5s.

In the midst of a promotional tour around Europe with adidas, Rose spent the morning at Lampton Academy putting the kids through a coaching session before heading to the ‘D Rose Jump Store’ in Hoxton.

The idea was simple – fresh pairs of Rose’s sneakers put up at a height of 10 feet, with fans having to jump up and grab them to take home a pair. Using the hashtag #jumpwithdrose, Twitter was inundated with fans getting hyped about meeting the Chicago Bulls star.

Here is one lucky fan winning his sneaks:
