ASICS will be celebrating Valentine’s Day with a special GEL-Lyte III duo later this month.

Perfectly aligned with the traditional colors of the festivities and this year in particular, the “Fire Monkey” GEL-Lyte III comes draped in burgundy as leather, suede and neoprene are joined by black lacing, matching lining and golden accents throughout.

Fans can get the kicks now from stockists like Las Vegas-based Feature while supplies last.
