adidas ‘Year of the Fire Monkey’ Collection (KICKS)

by January 06, 2016

To celebrate next month’s Chinese New Year, adidas is dropping limited edition colorways of theย D Lillard 2 and D Rose 6.

The collection draws inspiration from the Fire Monkey, this year’s Zodiac symbol.

From our friends at the Three Stripes:

The D Lillard 2 features a fanged fire monkey graphic print treated with a gloss finish. Designed with an all-black upper, the silhouette is constructed with nubuck detailing and breathable mesh panels. The Year of the Monkey edition is capped off by fire red and gold accents, a clear blue outsole and Oak Print details on the heel cap and BOUNCE midsole.


The D Rose 6 features a fire red graphic printed on black to reveal the aggressive nature of the โ€œFire Monkey.โ€ The upper is contrasted by blue accents along the tongue, webbing straps and clear outsole, while gold hits on the eyelets, signature D Rose details and adidas badging celebrate the start of the New Year. A custom D Rose graphic is also featured on the back of the tongue.

The D Rose 6 drops January 15, for $140. The D Lillard 2 drops February 5, for $105. Keep it tuned to to get your pair.
