The Asics Gel Lyte 3 Fire Monkey will be the latest silhouette to be rocking the Chinese New Year theme. This special edition colorway of the Gel Lyte 3 comes in a tonal look with just enough color contrast to give the shoe a nice pop.
Starting off, the upper of the Gel Lyte 3 comes in a burgundy upper constructed out of a combination made out of leather, suede and neoprene. As stated above, the majority of the shoe comes in a tonal motif, with the only part of the shoe not coming in burgundy being the gold colored hits found on Asics branding on side panels, heel tab and the speckling on the white midsole. Additional features on the shoe include the the two-toned (burgundy/black), the black lining and the burgundy outsole. Available now, pick your very own pair at select retailers for $130.
The burgundy/gold combination is always a good look in my opinion, and it’s no different on this pair of Gel Lyte 3s. I like the speckling on the midsole. My only complaint on the shoe is that there’s not enough gold on the upper. Aside from that, it’s a clean looking shoe.
