Celebrating the Year of the Monkey, the adidas Chinese New Year Collection features limited editions of the D Lillard 2 and D Rose 6. The collection is inspired by the symbolic nature of this year’s Chinese Zodiac – the “Fire Monkey” – and features custom fire monkey graphics, tonal prints and vivid color hits.
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 ($140) drops January 15 and D Lillard 2 ($105) on February 5 at adidas.com, Eastbay and Foot Locker.
