SOLEBOX x asics Gel-Lyte III “Blue Carpenter Bee”
On April 30th a very special collaboration lands at SOLEBOX. Xylocopa bombylans, better known as the blue carpenter bee, is about to deliver some sweet sweet to you: Asics and SOLEBOX teamed up for the Solebox Gel-Lyte III “Blue Carpenter Bee”, designed by Hikmet Sugoer for SOLEBOX.
The inspiration for our newest collab comes straight from Down Under: The Australian Cape York Peninsula is the natural home for the blue carpenter bee, where it’s often heard by its loud low-pitched buzzing. The shiny metallic body of the bee is reflected in the black full nubuck upper with the blue microsuede split tongue. On the lateral side the characteristic Tiger stripes are underlaid with a grid, remembering of the carpenter bee’s wings.
To ensure you rep our set in a proper style we added logo details which shine through the partly translucent outsole, as well as a reflective SOLEBOX heel logo. The newest addition to the Gel-Lyte III family is rounded off by three matching sets of laces.
