Derrick Rose fans

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:
