If you’ve been paying attention to ASICS retro runners for a few years now, this upcoming collab from Solebox should look familiar to you. That’s because a sample first surfaced of the GEL-Lyte III colorway by the German sneaker shop way back in 2012. Apparently scrapped at the time, Solebox has chosen to bring the look back, which we now learn is the “Blue Carpenter Bee” colorway. The awesome look for the GEL-Lyte III inspired by the large blue species of bees indigenous to Southeast Asia features a premium construction in black nubuck with the upper portion in a bright blue felt-like textile to mimic the look of the blue carpenter bee. A few details are then added to complete the theme, including bee graphics on the insoles, under the clear portion of the heel outsole, and Solebox branding on each heel and lace tip. The Solebox x ASICS GEL-Lyte III “Blue Carpenter Bee” will release in-store an online exclusively from Solebox on April 30th.
