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 the 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 “Fire Monkey.” 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.
